Zach Bruns


About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a substance abuse counselor (SAC) in Wisconsin with over 6 years of experience as a counselor and a case manager. I have worked with clients living with depression and anxiety symptoms, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, alcohol and other drug use disorders, parenting difficulties, relationship issues, sleep disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). I have extensive experience working with individuals who have experienced homelessness as well as childhood trauma and domestic violence.

My counseling person-centered, meaning I try to focus on being present, empathetic, and compassionate while respecting all my clients and being sensitive to cultural needs. My approach combines person-centered therapy with motivational interviewing techniques as well as solution-focused techniques and cognitive-behavioral therapy tailored specifically to each client's needs. It shows great strength to reach out for help when you feel like you're struggling. Thank you for taking the time to reach out for help through counseling services.

I look forward to working with you!
