Emily Clark, MA, LPCC-S

                                    Emily Clark, MA, LPCC-S (she/her/hers) has worked in the mental health field for 15 years

                                    with adults, teens, adolescents, couples, and families.  She earned a Bachelor of Arts in

                                    Psychology and a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Counseling from the nationally ranked

                                    Ohio State University Counselor Education program.  Emily started her career in community

                                    mental health where she helped create the first comprehensive counseling program at

                                    Stonewall Columbus. Emily works primarily with LGBTQ+ clients where she specializes in

                                    working with transgender and gender nonconforming persons.  Treating the whole person is

                                    essential, so she uses a strengths-based approach focused on wellness. Emily considers therapy a collaborative effort; she helps clients find the answers within themselves and prioritizes relationships and mutual transformation.  She utilizes an integrative framework incorporating queer humanism, feminist theory, and an anti-oppressive and social justice oriented lens.  Emily is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Prolonged Exposure, and an Internal Family Systems (IFS) framework, so she always uses a trauma-informed approach with clients. Emily is a co-owner and clinical director of Clintonville Counseling and Wellness.
