Vivien K. Zak, LCSW-R, BCD
For over two decades I worked in various not-for-profit social service agencies serving a broad swath of New York City humanity -- from children through to octogenarians -- on an even broader array of issues. I worked with individuals, couples, groups and families. During much of that time I also had a part-time private practice. My areas of expertise came to be mental health, substance abuse/addiction and trauma; those were the constants in all the places I worked.
Add to that: Throughout my life I have been interested in the nexus between our inner lives and what is -- for lack of a better term -- called 'spirituality,' yet found few ways to explore this on a clinical level. In 2012 I completed a Post-Masters Certificate Program in "Social Work and Spirituality" at New York University's Silver School of Social Work.
In my work with individuals and couples I incorporate a deeply humanistic, humble and questioning stance. Truly supporting what people do comes from an authentic understanding of who they are in all realms -- mind, body and soul/spirit.
