ABOUT

AYLA ZEIMER, LCPC

I am a psychotherapist and counselor in private practice providing individual and group counseling for teens and adults. I bring a breadth of experience in incorporating mindfulness, play, the body, art, and neuroscience into therapy to help my clients gain insight, and learn to regulate, and express their emotions. Combining an eclectic approach with evidenced based psychotherapy approaches, I create a cohesive, organic, and individualized treatment experience with each client.


Over the last decade, I have worked as an educational farmer, a wilderness adventure guide, an early childhood teacher, and assistant coordinator of the Intercultural Program at the Center for Grieving Children. Through these experiences, I have been reminded of the transformation made possible through experiential and expressive interventions. I believe healing is inherently creative and am always honored and excited to share in the change process.


My approach is trauma-based and healing centered. I have completed both Somatic Experiencing Intermediate training, and Internal Family Systems Level 1 certification.  I received my Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Southern Maine in 2015, and have since worked in community mental health clinics, non-profits, and private practice. 

“Everyday I live I try to create a culture around me where I am sitting in my truth”
