Zachary Gerlock, Registered Psychotherapist (Qual.)
Hello, my name is Zachary Gerlock (he/him), and I am a psychotherapy intern at Valley Connections Counselling in Burlington. I am currently completing my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. I hold a Diploma in Behavioural Science from George Brown College and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University.
Some days can feel like an uphill battle and sometimes the best thing to do is talk. My goal is to provide a safe and trusting environment where self-exploration and adaptive growth can occur, free from judgment and criticism. Honesty, trust, integrity and accountability are all characteristics that I am committed to upholding as we go through this journey together. I take a collaborative approach, as I believe the utilization of different evidence-based theories can help identify strengths, help with the implementation of adaptive strategies, and add value to the experience of therapy. I particularly enjoy a solution-focused approach as it draws our attention away from problems and encompasses our energy into finding the solutions that create positive change.
In my spare time I enjoy playing hockey, guitar, listening to music, motorcycles and long walks with my new puppy.
