A man once said, "People are intentional when they charge their phone, to make sure it doesn't have a low battery.  We need to be just as intentional as we learn to take care of ourselves."

As we navigate current events, it is clear there are moments we are overwhlemed, and anxious. At times, it can seem there is nothing in our control, and no end in sight.  The types of challenges we are facing requires a different perspective and different set of coping skills than previously used. How does someone develop the skills in real time for a situation that has never been faced

Imagine how you might feel confidently walking into a situation knowing any obstacle presented can be reframed as an opportunity which can be managed with a calm demeanor.  This calmness helps get us through the situation and feel better about accepting and overcoming challenges.

Zachary is a Licensed Master of Social work who specializes in mental health, substance use disorders, and self care.  His balanced approach to building resilience fosters individuality, team work, and resource building.  He understands coping skills are essential to navigate complex problems.  He utilizes Coginitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy along with ekements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.  A key componet in building the therapuetic relationship is the understanding the person seeking help is the expert of their experience.
