Preferred Name: Zach
My name is Zachary Thomas, and I am a social worker in Delta, CO. I've built my specialty working with youth who have experienced trauma in their life. I have learned through my years of practice that Trauma can be the root of many issues including: anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and more. In order to best support my clients I have done my best to be well rounded having received trainings and certifications in a variety of therapy modalities including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (trained), Motivational Interviewing (trained), Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Certified), and Licensed Addiction Counseling (Certified). My goal is to help youth address their underlying needs early in life so that they can lead a fulfilling life into adulthood.
