It is not the strongest nor the most intelligent of species

that survive, but the one most responsive to change. -Charles Darwin


Welcome to Ottawa Talk Therapy. My name is Lisa Zimmerman and I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor and psychotherapist.  I enjoy supporting  people to work through the stress and frustrations that can interfere with the achievement of personal goals.  I strive to provide a safe environment for people to explore the impact of their past experiences and to develop a better understanding of emotions and thinking patterns that and how they impact on the choices we make.  I specialise in the following areas:
