Elizabeth Zimmerman, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Katonah, NY & Westport, CT
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I provide compassionate support to individuals, couples and families. I also work with children and adolescents, either individually or as part of family treatment. My areas of special focus include depression and anxiety, relationship challenges, trauma, struggles with self-image, confidence and well-being, life transitions, diminished sense of meaning and purpose in life, loneliness, and grief and loss. Whether you feel stressed, overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, or worried that your relationship is in trouble, I will walk with you and help you through the process of change.
My choice to become a therapist was inspired by my own journey and life experiences, and represents the culmination of all I have learned, felt and become. This is the work that I feel I was meant to do. I find great joy and meaning in helping my clients gain insight and awareness, access their innate strengths and resources, and develop the skills and confidence to create a more fulfilling and balanced life.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, and received my Master of Family Therapy from Southern Connecticut State University. I have conducted extensive postgraduate training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with George Faller at The Greenwich Center for Hope and Renewal. I have additional training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), as well as Gestalt therapy. I am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), the Connecticut Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (CTAMFT), the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT), the New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy (NYCEFT), and the AEDP Institute.
I would love to talk to you about how I might be able to help you.
