Hello! If you found me you may just be in the right place. My name is Dawn Clark and I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina ( LCMHC), Florida ( LMHC), and Georgia (LPC). I come to the therapeutic relationship with a nonjudgment-based approach. I want to assist in the transition to build a stronger more resilient you.
I can provide you with a safe environment to address challenging times, supporting you in your goal to move forward. I focus on helping and encouraging individuals., not treating a disorder. I am certified in Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma-Focused Therapy. I have a strong affiliation with Cognitive Behavioral therapy as well. I am also Certified in Pet Assisted Therapy as our furry family members can help us in so many ways.
Over the years I have worked with many. My primary focal point is adults and couples who are working on forward movement in their lives. I welcome all. The LGBTQ+ community is a strong focus of many who I work with. I have a trauma specialty and work with issues of anxiety, depression, mood disorders, self-esteem issues, co-occurring situations, and relationship struggles. I also am specially trained to provide and teach others the skill of mediation.
My communication style
I will not back away from your needs as my goal is to never look the other way. We have fun in many of our sessions - LAUGHING is always welcome and certainly has healing factors. When working towards enhanced joy is it impossible not to at times smile. I am very direct and open-minded and no one should ever feel out of place in the relationship.
My journey to mental healthcare
I always wanted to join the field of behavioral health and my motivation never changed. I wanted to be a part of people's lives in a supportive positive way and the rewards are many as I observe each individual walking away with healing, growth, and joy.
My goals for you
You set your goals and we will work as a team to make them happen! I am betting you may just find yourself not only experiencing change but also enjoying the journey.
My first session with you
The first session is all about getting to know one another. Feel free to come to me with questions as I will come to you with many. I want to know what it will take for you to feel successful!
