Lisa Zucker is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Thanatologist with a private practice in Hollywood. Throughout her fourteen years in the field, Lisa continued to gravitate to working with people who had experienced loss. Whether at a substance treatment facility, working with foster families, or working with families who were living with cancer, Lisa sought to comfort and help process losses and underlying grief in order to help individuals and families begin to heal.
In 2013, Lisa became certified as a Thanatologist with the Association of Death Education and Counseling, furthering her commitment to the study and treatment of dying and bereaved people. Lisa speaks for various organizations, including Gilda’s Club South Florida and Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies, to bring the conversation of the needs of the grieving to people who are mourning as well as to friends, family, and helping professionals who want to support the bereaved. Her journey has led her to develop her new site, GriefTREE, that will create a space for bereaved people and professionals to learn about grief and tools to assist and grow from loss. GriefTREE is expected to launch in the beginning of 2017.
