Psychotherapy -- also called "talk therapy" -- is a process whereby psychological problems are treated through communication and the relationship between an individual and a trained mental health professional. Zack's approach to psychotherapy is systemic in nature, meaning that all aspects of a person’s life are interconnected. If one element in life is unbalanced, than other aspects will inevitably be affected as well. The goal of psychotherapy is to uncover, discuss and resolve the various parts of one's life that are hindering their ability to thrive. Zack's psychotherapy sessions are 50 minutes and take place in his office.
Coaching is a therapeutic alliance between coach and client that focuses on skill building and the accomplishment of both short and long term goals. It differs from psychotherapy in that it is more task oriented and direct in nature. Coaching is great for those who have a desire to change a specific aspect of their life such as shifting careers or living a healthier lifestyle. Coaching sessions are 1 hour and can take place in any location.
Case Management involves the coordination of care with a client and their family for various life issues including mental health disorders, eating disorders, and addiction issues. Zack has extensive experience working in collaboration with individuals, families, medical providers, and trusted referrals to help design a treatment plan that is most beneficial to the individual and their family members.
Zack specializes in the unique needs of those in the music and entertainment industries. After 10 years in the music industry, Zack changed careers with the desire to help musicians and artists of all kinds with the unique struggles that come with being a creative individual in a challenging and complex business. His work is centered on providing support for both artists and their teams, including agents, managers and executives.
