Marriage, Couples, and Family Counseling

Zach has a passion for helping couples and families become closer and stronger.  All couples have conflict. The difference between unhealthy relationships and those that last, depends on how they interact during these conflicts. Zach is trained to help couples identify their harmful communication patterns as well as help them learn healthier ones. Through engaging in counseling, couples can begin to repair and heal from hurtful experiences, learn about each other’s unmet needs, turn towards instead of away from each other, and work towards shared life dreams.
