Zach Clay, LMFT


Children and families are often in need of healing. This belief led me to earn my Master’s in Counseling degree in Marriage, Family and Child therapy. What I have been most inspired by after 16 years of working in this field has been the capacity for inner resilience that children and families have shown in the face of overwhelming pain, adversity, and trauma.

I have the wisdom of experience with a humorous, playful nature. Although other modalities may be incorporated when working with families, I predominately use a creative, play-based approach. This includes tailored therapy interventions such as art, games, and sand tray activities to help children and families. After all, children communicate through play, which is why talk therapy is more widely used in treatment of adults.

I endeavor to be like a lighthouse, shining a light for children and families to navigate through the storms that life may bring. This is possible by helping people develop essential skills to face past, present, and future challenges. Together, we’ll journey toward living brighter, happier lives.
