Zach holds a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and is a Licensed Professional Counselor who primarily works with survivors of trauma and abuse in his private practice. Many who see Zach for therapy are experiencing trauma symptoms such as anxiety, excessive fear, or are simply struggling to connect meaningfully with those in their lives. Zach uses modalities like EMDR and somatic experiencing to help people move toward healing.
In addition to practicing therapy, Zach is the creator and host of Misunderstood, a podcast that aims to help the general public understand and empathize with issues surrounding mental health. He also serves as a Clinical Consultant and Advisory Board Member to Children's Future International--a nonprofit that rescues, educates, and rehabilitates some of the poorest and most vulnerable children in the Cambodian village of Battambang.
Besides working with trauma, Zach likes working with adolescents, the LGBTQ+ community, and issues specific to men and masculinity. He also enjoys cool kicks, a good beat, and doing nothing—with people.
