ABOUT LISA ZUCKER

Lisa Zucker, MSW, LCSWLisa Zucker graduated from Florida State University with a BS in Psychology and a minor in Religion. She completed her MSW at the University of Vermont. While there, she found her calling while working with an amazing group of teenagers who were living with or had survived cancer. Her life was never the same after sharing their journey.

While in Vermont, Lisa gained experience working in the children’s program at Women Helping Battered Women, the state’s largest organization serving battered women, and at Act 1, a substance stabilization and detoxification program.

After moving to North Carolina, she continued her focus on health care social work at the Fresenius Medical Care dialysis center. Upon returning to her family home in South Florida, Lisa joined JAFCO, an adoption and foster care agency serving abused and neglected children. After two years of working with foster families, birth families, and in the family preservation program, Lisa returned to the health care field at Gilda's Club South Florida, once again working with people living with or having survived cancer, their caregivers, and those who lost someone to the disease.

"I have a niche specialization – I see patients with varying concerns however, I specialize in grief and loss. This includes working with people who are chronically or terminally ill, their caregivers or loved ones, people who are bereaved, and people experiencing loss of any kind such as pet loss, retirement, infertility, or divorce."- Lisa Zucker, MSW, LCSW, CT

These real life experiences led Lisa to open her own private practice, focused on helping people deal with the difficult challenges of illness and loss. She balances a busy home life with a wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters, and continues to assist at Gilda's Club when possible.

Lisa is a member of the Association for Death Education and Counseling, the Florida Society for Oncology Social Workers and the National Association of Social Workers.
