About Andrew Zimmerman

People seek therapy when they are feeling overwhelmed and when their usual coping skills aren't working. Maybe you're feeling stuck in your work life or relationships, or struggling to find a sense of well being. These difficulties can lead to symptoms of depression, anxiety and addictions, to name a few. I envision therapy as a space where two people can focus together on whatever is causing you pain. I believe this process can lead to greater self-awareness, effectiveness, and personal freedom, as your choices become more conscious and your sense of yourself deepens. Individual therapy will address issues both broad and specific such as self-esteem, relationship issues, academic struggles, and identity. My training is psychodynamic and relational: I invite clients to focus on and say whatever comes to mind in order to begin a collaborative dialogue that addresses your concerns. I am currently in network with several insurance companies while also working with out-of-network benefits. My office would be happy to help you maximize your insurance benefits during the verification process. I will also discuss a sliding scale rate in my free phone consultation.

Andrew was very nice. Even before coming to my first appointment he personally emailed me and my insurance was verified.I thought that Andrew had a very nice office, clean, happy flowers and a comfortable couch. I came on a weekend so the building was a little quiet and erie but I think that Saturdays in the winter are not when the other office buildings are running. He was very good at making me feel comfortable and gave me the ability to talk. I left the appointment in a really good mood and I am excited to go back for another appointment. He was very good at scheduling me in and making room for me for future appointments.

Andrew has been extremely helpful in my efforts to heal and strengthen myself. He has a highly-intuitive and intellectual approach to resolving negative thought patterns and identifying behaviors, most of which I was not even aware of myself. Andrew is an extremely easy person to talk to and be around, welcoming uncomfortable, yet necessary and healing conversations. I have never felt judged or embarrassed about anything I have confided in him. He is very smart, kind, and a strong listener, remember most of the things I have told him. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking therapy, or a caring, listening ear. :)

Took a second to find the flow, but once we did, it was a decent first session. Wish he'd engaged me a little more- I prefer a conversation to a listen-and-remark, but he had nice insight, for sure.
