Zachary Preboski, MS

Intern Therapist

Zach is currently completing his Master of Counseling education through Northwest Nazarene
University. Through this training as well as his 17 years of experience as a physical therapist, Zach is attuned toward the promotion of mind-body wellness, whether as a healthcare provider experiencing compassion fatigue or someone recovering from either recent injury or stalled with persistent symptoms. He also has experience supporting young adults and men using strength-based approaches often helpful with stress, adversity or trauma. 

Zach believes that the choices that make up our evolving life stories are influenced by many

things, and that there are unique, individual challenges in the experiencing of who we are now as well as who we are yet to become. Recognizing the healing that an empathetic presence that authentically sees and hears another can foster, Zach’s approach is oriented around intentions to remain curious, embody acceptance, and cultivate compassion. His style is one which encourages a collaborative, client centered pathway buffered by active personal work vital for aligning into the direction of their chosen life values.

Zach seeks self-care through individual and group mindfulness practices, connecting to the

natural world, and spending time with family and friends in Boise and the Sawtooth Mountains.
