Today’s Guest: Zach Meyer, MA, LPC, is a licensed professional counselor who likes to say he has worked with students since he was one himself. From coaching high schoolers and working as a camp counselor to clinical positions in inpatient and outpatient settings, Zach has spent his career supporting teenagers and young adults to navigate the many challenges that accompany this developmental stage.

Zach has also spent his life in the arts, growing up in choirs and theater productions from grade school through college. He continues to write and record music, and he released his first full-length album last summer. At the intersection of these two interests lie Zach's greatest passion: the relationship between art-making and our mental health.

He and his wife — a psychologist — have a private therapy practice in the Milwaukee area. When not doing therapy or making music, Zach is probably hanging out with his wife, three kids and two dogs, or working on the restoration of their historic 1913 home.
