Seija Zimmerman--Teen, young adult and substance abuse therapist in Sacramento

hi there,

Have you gone through a troubling experience? Is it difficult to move on in the aftermath? Maybe, it feels as if you are always going through challenging life experiences, or a lifetime of distress? Are you ready to do something about it, maybe even desperate to? I’d love to help you on this path. I understand that one of the hardest things to do can be to ask for help and be willing to receiving it. I want to help.

If you are ready to take the first step in your own healing, please walk through my door. I will meet you in that space and together we will discover all of you, and follow your own natural instinct to heal. I firmly believe there are no “bad” parts of you. Yes, there may be hurt and messy parts,

parts that may be calling out their suffering or caught up in repeating patterns that no longer make sense or serve the intended purpose. I would like to be with you as we approach the whole of you with compassion.  

When you work with me, I bring my whole self to the room for you. I show up with my education, training and professional experience, as well as the wealth of personal, human, life experiences that make me who I am. I have years of experience working with trauma in many presentations. Whether it’s a history of childhood abuse, an assault, an accident, relational violence or abuse, or maybe it’s something difficult to even put into words. Sometimes our deepest sense of distress has no specific incident that we can pinpoint. Instead, it is our beliefs about our self or others that seems to interfere with our happiness.

I believe lasting change comes when a person is ready and willing to do deep work and look inward. To help with this work I use multiple specialized techniques including a focus on emotion, our early attachment relationships, mindfulness, emotional coping strategies, and strategies for desensitization of triggers and trauma memories including EMDR and trauma focused CBT. If you are ready, so am I.
