Nick Clark LPC
Master’s degree in Professional and Mental Health Counseling from Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri; 2011.
Individual and couples therapy for challenges including depression, anxiety, family relationships and trauma, life adjustment, divorce, men’s issues, and stress reduction.
I generally use an individualized, mindfulness-based approach to counseling. This includes mindfulness-based psychotherapies, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) as well as aspects of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). I also incorporate research on trauma and its impact on well being, such as Polyvagal Theory and research on attachment across the human lifespan. I view the therapeutic relationship as a paramount component in improving outcomes in therapy. When working with parents and parenting issues, I typically include Collaborative Problem Solving methods in treatment.
I have been practicing with adults, adolescents, children, and families as a Therapist since 2012 and worked in family case management for seven years before that. I specialize in working with family relationship issues, as well as adult survivors of family dysfunction and child abuse. I strive to help clients gain a sense of equanimity and compassion towards themselves so that they can fully pursue a valued and meaningful life. I welcome clients from all backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, and gender diversity. I am licensed as a Professional/Mental Health Counselor in Oregon, Washington, and Missouri.
