About Me

"When we can see ourselves as we truly are and accept ourselves, we build the necessary foundation for self-love." -bell hooks

My name is Lila Zimmerman (she/her.) I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I graduated with my MA in Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies where I gravitated towards a depth-oriented approach and became interested in working in Community Mental Health. I have my BA in Creative Writing from Pratt Institute and I continue to enjoy working in the medium of language and story.
