EMILY CLARK, LPCC-S
Emily Clark, MA, LPCC-S (she/her/hers) is a cisgender, able-bodied, white woman who acknowledges the privilege of being in a monogamous long term relationship with a cisman. She 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.
