About

Overall, I consider myself a "worldly nurturer". "Worldly", because I have worked with people from all backgrounds, cultures, ages, and walks of life to "nurture" their potential. All of my experiences have taught me the foundational skills that I use in my profession today, which are: patience, the ability to listen, the understanding that listening is as paramount as speaking, the capabilities to be resourceful, valuing modesty and humility whilst still being confident and capable, and having faith in my skill-set while still being open to professionally growing and developing.
Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of working with children, adolescents, families, couples, and adults with a range of needs (e.g. overcoming trauma/traumatic experiences, crisis resolution, behavioral/cognitive adjustment, life skill building, college/professional preparation, substance use/abuse, life reflection and evaluation, and much more).
Every encounter can teach us something fundamental about ourselves that pushes us towards self-improvement, even if only marginally. My skillset has allowed me to provide and design client specific care that caters to nurturing individual goals and growth milestones that the client desires. I look forward to working with you if you allow me the privilege.

Malanna Simmons's Groups

Recovering from a Hard/Traumatic Relationship

Break-ups can be hard, some can even be traumatic, but I would be honored and privileged to support you in your recovery journey as you re-invent, re-empower, and renew yourself post-relationship. I think the most important part of the recovery process is remembering the incredible person that you were and how that person is still there, you might just need a hand to pull them out again. Allow me to extend my hand to you! Philadelphia Group!
