Nebojsa Zimonjic, MS, LCPC

My name is Nebojsa Zimonjic (pronounced Neboysha Zeemonyich) or, Zima, for short. I enjoy working with all age groups: adults, young adults, elderly, children, adolescents, as well as with families and couples.

I am trained to adapt myself to a person’s individual needs, developmental level, and pace. I consider myself an eclectic clinician, predominantly practicing Rogerian, a person-centered approach incorporating humor and accurate empathy. I collaborate well with other treating professionals to provide suitable support to a client under my care.

I am a dedicated professional who will apply knowledge and passion to meet your needs while utilizing evidence-based treatment approaches.
