Monica Zack, LSW, MPH


Bryn Mawr College, Drexel University


I have provided therapy in a college counseling center and have several years of experience working in hospital and palliative care settings. I have also worked in an advocacy role in a variety of settings including collegiate substance use recovery and emergency meal sites in Philadelphia, PA


Psychodynamic interviewing, substance use disorder recovery, the family of origin concerns, depression, anxiety, relational and attachment concerns, identity concerns, serious medical illness, life transitions

Treatment Philosophy

I utilize a largely psychodynamic, strengths-based, and relational approach through the lens of trauma-informed care, critical race theory, and multicultural humility. I also draw from Internal Family Systems theory and incorporate mindfulness and experiential therapy techniques

Guiding Principles

My goal as a clinician is to support each individual to overcome obstacles in their life by discovering what is most true for them. I strive to meet each client where they are at and build upon their existing strengths to empower them to solve their problems and achieve their goals. I also incorporate social justice and advocacy in my work, remaining attuned to how dynamics of power, privilege, and systemic oppression show up in both the lives of my clients and the therapeutic relationship
