Emily Clark, M.A., LPCC-S

                                      Emily Clark, M.A., LPCC-S (she/her/hers) has worked in the mental health field for

                                      over 12 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.  She utilizes an integrative framework incorporating mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy, humanistic, feminist, and queer theories. Emily is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and actively working toward certification, so she always uses a trauma-informed approach with clients. Emily is a co-owner of Clintonville Couseling and Wellness.
