I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (TX LPC #74039) with over seven years of experience in the mental health field. I am passionate about what I do. My focus is on you. Together we can explore and identify ways to manage and cope with life.
My practice is geared towards helping teens and adults learn about and process emotion in a more effective manner. Societal norms play a large role in how we are “allowed” to feel and far too often feelings of anger, discontentment, irritation(…) seem like the only option. We have many complex feelings that deserve and need our attention. I focus on developing a strong therapeutic connection in which you can work towards your own personal goals and overall growth in a safe environment.
My wife and I spend the majority of our time attempting to navigate the complexities of parenting three young children. We all love being outdoors and spend as much time as we can in the garden, camping, riding bikes, and playing baseball. I enjoy reading any type of mystery/suspense novel, baseball, sustainable living, and music. I also train in the martial art Muay Thai as often as possible.
I graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2014. During my tenure at TWU I volunteered as a clinical intern therapist working with children and their families at the Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County. I then spent the next two years earning supervised hours as an LPC-Intern in private practice. In 2017 I earned the status of Licensed Professional Counselor and in January 2018 I opened Zach Baldridge Counseling, PLLC.
I look forward to working with you, contact me here.
