My love for other cultures started out as a child when my family hosted over 6 exchange in our home. I studied Spanish and Latin American studies in college and volunteered in Bolivia for a semester with sexually exploited women. Later, I lived overseas in Papua New Guinea, which grew my worldview, and most importantly, showed me how vulnerable it can be living in a foreign land where very few know my language, being so far from friends and family! Today, my family and I also like to serve with International Friendship Outreach at the local university because we know how much friends from other cultures can enrich our lives. My passion is helping people! I am licensed in Arkansas to assess, diagnose and treat mental health disorders and currently work in AR as a trauma-informed therapist. I am offering confidential, compassionate, trauma-informed evaluations done digitally over Telehealth and interpreter-friendly.

Graduate of the Immigration Evaluation Institute

I was born in Jalisco, Mexico and at the age of fourteen, life introduced me to the Land of Enchantment. Since then, Albuquerque has seen me grow and evolve into the proud and professional Latina that I am now. I have personally gone through my own naturalization process which gives me a better understanding of what clients are going through emotionally and physically. In 2023, I opened my private practice called Nuevo Healing & Counseling.
I have significant training on trauma and its impacts, as well as many years of experience working with immigrants, asylees and refugees from around the world. I am a native Spanish speaker.


My name is Veronica (Vyazovsky) Zamir, and I am a psychotherapist and clinical mental health counselor independently licensed in the states of IL (180008516) and Maryland (LC10439) and Texas (80573). I have practiced psychotherapy since obtaining my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree in 2008 from Northeastern IL University. I have provided psychological evaluations and therapy for hundreds of individuals struggling with psychiatric disorders. I came to the USA as a refugee from the former Soviet Union at the age of 9.
