Zach holds Master’s Degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Applied Psychology. He is a Licensed Mental Health 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's clinical work is informed by his primary theoretical orientations, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral. Your work together would be a blend of deeply exploring your current situation, past and present significant relationships, and practical skills to use to help experience your emotions and relationships in a more fulfilling way. For those seeking treatment for past trauma, Zach uses a treatment called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help clients heal from traumatic experiences. Zach has worked for several nonprofits and in a variety of hospital settings. Currently, he also works with a research group through Yale University that aims to create evidence-based treatments for queer individuals suffering from depression and anxiety. His work and writing have been featured in The Huffington Post and Vice.
