Founder & CEO

Clinical Director| Therapist| SEP

Tel: 502-936-6546



Hello! I'm LaShonda (She, Her, Hers). I am the founding owner and clinical director of Sims Counseling & Consulting. I was born and raised in Kentucky, and Louisville is home for me. 


I received my Master of Arts degree in Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy from Western Kentucky University. I am a National Certified Counselor, and currently hold professional license in two states; I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Kentucky and a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina. 


After three-years of intensive trauma training and successfully completing numerous hours of case consultations, I became certified as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).  With my experience, training, and integrative tool bag, I fully embrace a body-based or "bottom-up" approach to healing trauma in session.


I enjoy traveling the world and submerging myself into new cultures. For seven years of my life, I lived abroad in Europe and Asia providing counseling and support to the brave men and women of our military. In addition to my clinical training, I am also a trauma informed yoga teacher, mindfulness coach, Reiki practitioner, speaker, and professional consultant.



Outside of the office, I enjoy being present with family, spending countless hours listening to podcast, practicing yoga, spending time in nature, indulging in ALL things self-care, traveling, swimming, reading, and dabbling in DIY projects! As a new mom, I enjoy sleep in a whole new way and embrace each and every moment to rest my mind and body. I am a firm believer that rest should be prioritized and is a divine right.


I am so glad that you have taken this first step toward honoring what you need in this moment.

Just tune into your body and BREATHE into the next step, you got this!

*LaShonda is currently only accepting new clients interested in Somatic Experiencing sessions.
