Zachary D. Bloom, Ph.D., LCPC, LMFT
I believe that all people are always growing, and life is the greatest teacher for helping us to become the best versions of ourselves. But sometimes life’s lessons can be tricky to navigate on our own and it’s not uncommon to feel stuck in our life circumstances. Whether you’re feeling sad, scared, or frustrated in your life, in your relationships, or even in your sense of self, I believe that it is possible to overcome any challenge and find healing from the past.
