Zac is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (MH11867). He completed an undergraduate degree in Social Studies Education in Texas before continuing his Master's in Mental Health Counseling at Webster University in Geneva, Switzerland. Zac's philosophy was heavily inﬂuenced by Carl Jung in Switzerland. Zac is not the typical psychotherapist though. He has a track record of being both pragmatic and personcentered. The goals of the client are always the highest priority. Zac has experience helping people work through many difﬁcult issues, but he has most of his experience and training in the areas of Trauma/PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Anxiety/Stress, HIV/AIDS, ADHD, Substance use, and other Addictions.
Most of Zac's experience comes from working in the areas of trauma from both sexual abuse and assault as well as military related PTSD. Zac mostly works with adults, but often sees children for ADHD. Zac also enjoys working with couples on family related stress. He regularly uses his dog Grace to help in session. Dog assisted therapy is a passion of his and has helped many people with ADHD, Trauma, Anxiety, and Stress. Zac's clients ﬁnd Grace to be loving and emotionally attentive. She greets everyone who comes through the door with unconditional love and positive regard.
An interesting fact about Zac is his traveling experience. He loves traveling and views himself as a "third-culture kid" due to how much he moved as a child. Zac initially started graduate school for international relations because he wanted to get into conﬂict resolution and international policy. He ended up getting an internship that convinced him that he wanted to help people on a deeper and more personal level than would be possible if working for the Department of State. He then shifted his focus to Mental Health Counseling and found his passion.
