The holistic worldview has been Dr. Zolow’s foundation for all personal and professional practice. His career has spanned multiple arenas. He has worked as a social worker, counselor, therapist, supervisor, manager, and program director. He has brought the holistic perspective to each of these roles and shared this view with clients, customers, and co-workers in every way possible.

“Over the past 35 years, I have explored the world philosophical and religious traditions of Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufism, Kabbalism, Paganism, and the mystic traditions of Christianity. This exploration has had the effect of expanding my perspective on the commonalities that are interwoven across all world cultures. The result of this perspective is to realize that it is very human to seek a personal experience of spirituality that is grounded in the familiar.”

“Our cultural and familial influences produce a foundation for understanding our relationship to the universal. With this understanding, we go forth and discover the meaning that we can best identify with. It is this meaning that guides us through our lives and gives us the hope for finding the answers to the mysteries that are constantly presented as we live our lives. The benefit of having a diverse exposure to multiple traditions allows me to relate to many viewpoints. I have been blessed to have had very meaningful interactions regarding spirituality with all the people who I have had the pleasure of discussing the topic with. This is one of the most rewarding experiences that I can think of.”
