My Story

Hello, my name is Yamila Zimerman. I am a graduate student completing a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. I have an Advanced Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a minor in Family Social Sciences. One of the age groups that I specialize in is adolescents because that is an age group that is usually misunderstood and an age group where their emotions get dismissed. Sometimes we assume that adolescents are acting differently because of "hormones" and we end up dismissing them. I believe that adolescence is a difficult age group and they need help navigating through the many different things they are tackling and they need to be heard. I provide a supportive environment for adolescents and I help them uncover useful coping skills. I also specialize in counselling those struggling with stress, anxiety and a wide range of emotions. I help clients manage life's tough situations and I help clients reach their goals. My approach consists of mindfulness techniques and restructuring negative cognitions into more realistic ones. The goal is to give you the skills so that you can best cope with life's toughest moments and so that you can be your best self. Throughout our sessions, we will work towards helping you achieve optimal well-being and helping you live your life the way you have always wanted. I also provide life coaching to individuals who would like to meet their goals, change their life, get out of a rut & strive for success.
