About me

My name is Zach and I am honored you are interested in looking into me as a potential therapist! I am a licensed counselor in Pennsylvania and I have have been working as a mental health and substance abuse counselor for the last seven years. Helping people to gain the skills and abilities they need to help them build a better life for themselves is my goal.

I have worked in many different counseling fields in the last seven years, but my main areas of focus include: trauma, abuse, coping with life changes, addiction counseling, PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias, and dealing with grief and loss. In addition, I am currently getting my specialization in trauma and abuse counseling.

As a counselor, I have been described by my former clients as being a “warm and interactive therapist who is willing to help his client's succeed in meeting their goals while respecting their unique life challenges”. I believe in unconditional positive regard for my clients and as such, I refrain from labels and judgment and instead deal with my clients with compassion and sensitivity.

Simply by seeking out help, you are taking a courageous and difficult step. While I may have the training you are seeking, you are the expert on the events in your life. True counseling is a two (or more) person job. I can lead you on the path you want to go and help guide you through life's pitfalls. I look forward to making this journey with you!

*Please note that if you are in need of a counselor to write official documentation for parole officers, courts of law, or employers, I do not offer this service to clients.
