Zachary Mortus

Is your child struggling with making good choices or handling big emotions? I have worked with children and teenagers for over 10 years and specialize in solution focused therapy and play therapy to help children and their families learn new skills and behaviors to thrive again. Some of my specialties include ADHD, Anxiety, Behavioral Issues, self-esteem, bullying, life transitions, and problematic sexual behavior in teens.

Children frequently need the same supportive space as adults to process their feelings, learn new ways to communicate and gain new skills for handling day to day challenges. My training in Solution Focused Play Therapy brings both the environment and the tools.

The same tools and methods used for children also helps adults which makes me uniquely qualified to work with people of all ages! This combined with my experience working with teenagers at the San Marcos Sexual Behavior unit provide a unique combination of skills and experience to help with problem behaviors and addictions as well.

Together we will identify your goals and biggest obstacles and then work side by side to develop an effective plan to learn and practice new skills to reach those goals.

Scope of Practice

I work with children and teens of all ages and their families to solve problems associated with behavior, attention, focus, mood, and anxiety as well as major life transitions such as moves, loss, and divorce.  I also have specialized training in working with teens with problematic sexual behavior such as pornography.

I also provide faith based Christian counseling where my client desire it.
