Annie Zimmerli, PsyD, Psychologist in Westport
There are so many different reasons that parents seek support for their children, and choosing a therapist is a very personal decision: Experience, philosophy, a recommendation from a friend, all go into the decision. But, usually, its just a personal connection. In the end, finding the right therapist is about making a connection that feels good and that matches your families personality. I am a hands on, goal oriented person. I will help to identify the problem, and provide the support and help needed to empower you, as the parent, to help your child.
My specialty is children and parents. I think that working with parents is as important as the therapy with the child and so I do a lot of parenting work, both individually and in small groups. I am a cognitive behavioral therapist so my treatment model is to be goal oriented and directive.
In addition, I also do neuropsychological and academic testing with kids and adolescents who have learning concerns, as well as working with schools and teachers to help children to succeed in the classroom. Lastly, I am also interested in mindfulness and meditation and often integrate this into my practice, as needed.
