He is also a state Certified Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) as well as a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP). He has a background in developmental psychology, elementary education and special education.

Mr. Wolk has been providing direct clinical care since 1989 in multiple settings, including private practice, addiction treatment agencies and mental health clinics. He has both practiced and taught in the fields of family and relationship dynamics, addiction and mental health disorders, and recovery from trauma.

Mr. Wolk has been in Private Practice since 1991. In addition in recent years, Mr. Wolk was the coordinator of Mental Illness and Chemical Abuse (MICA) Services at Strong Ties, a division of Strong Hospital’s Behavioral Health Department at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York. He has created programs and trained clinicians to treat “dual diagnoses,” or co-morbid conditions such as anxiety disorders with drug addiction, or mood disorders with sex addiction.

Food addiction and sex addiction are two underdeveloped areas of mental health treatment in which he has been most valued for pioneering effective treatment methods. Mr. Wolk has developed chemical dependency programs and domestic violence programs in probation departments, mental health settings, public school systems, and social change organizations. This work has included training and supervising staff, organizations, businesses, families, couples and individuals to learn to collaborate and communicate effectively.

Mr. Wolk maintains his private practice office in Rochester, New York, where he sees adults, teens, couples, and groups.
