Services Offered
Clark conducts therapy for individuals, couples, and families, and is LGBTQ+ friendly. Clark also specializes in Complex PTSD, Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRB’s), and Addiction recovery.

Theoretical Orientation
Clark uses an integrative theoretical approach, incorporating Buddhist psychology, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral psychology (including DBT and ACT), mindfulness and compassion training, and psychodynamic theory. He enjoys working with a variety of people including those in recovery from addiction. Clark believes that while pain is inevitable in life, it is our resistance to pain (also known as the second arrow) that causes suffering. Fortunately, by increasing our awareness of the ways in which we mentally resist things, we have the opportunity to reduce the amount of time spent suffering. Clark has been influenced by the writings and teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, Ajahn Brahm, Kristen Neff, Pete Walker, Bessel Van Der Kolk, Tara Brach, Desmond Tutu, Daniel Siegel, John and Julie Gottmann, Donald Nathanson, and others.
