McBee Zimmerman, LPC, Personal Biography

Overwhelmed. Detached. Lost. Do you feel like you are living in survival mode? Sometimes in life feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, or low self-worth can prevent you from living a fully engaged life. You feel derailed by intense feelings and thoughts that keep you trapped in a cycle that often leads to self-destructive behaviors and coping patterns. And yet, change is possible! I can come alongside and help share strategies and coping skills to help you reclaim your life. I have experience in helping people find healing in the areas of addiction, depression, trauma, grief, loss, anxiety, family dynamics, codependency, relationship issues and co-occurring disorders. Using an integrative, holistic, multicultural, approach in treatment I can assist you in creating change in your life. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs while being sensitive to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices impact your experience. I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling.


Through counseling sessions, I will partner with you to provide accountability for you to grow emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. I can help you with tools to manage emotions effectively, challenge faulty thinking patterns, and reconnect with your values and with people important to you. I am compassionate, supportive, nonjudgmental, honest and direct. Therapy works best in the context of a safe, nurturing and supportive environment.  My hope is for us to work together to explore, discover and make changes so that you are living an intentional and meaningful life.
