A Very Special Specialty

Some clients benefit from taking medication, but others do not…some would prefer not to take it, or simply cannot tolerate the side effects. Whatever a client’s preference, Dr. Clarke can help. For years, she has been working closely with a team of psychiatrists and other medical professionals (including a client’s own specific physician or team) to help her clients overcome serious disorders, such as panic disorder and PTSD, using her unique, natural and multifaceted approach to healing.

 

A Multifaceted Approach

Because every client’s issues are completely different, there is no “one size fits all” kind of therapy. Dr. Clarke creates an intricate, individualized treatment plan for each client, drawing on a variety of therapeutic techniques. These may include:

  • Cognitive/Behavioral
  • Psychodynamic
  • Inner Child Work
  • Family of Origin Work
  • Jacobsonian Deep Relaxation
  • Systematic Desensitization
  • Dream Analysis
  • Visualization
  • Life Coaching
  • Psychoeducation

 

True healing of any kind requires a remarkable healer. Dr. Clarke’s clients succeed not only because they are guided by an experienced and talented practitioner; but also because they know that they are understood, safe, unconditionally accepted, supported, and genuinely cared about. Dr. Clarke believes heart-to-heart connections are the foundation for healing and an integral part of every therapist-client relationship.
