I am Karlene Clarke, a licensed clinical social worker in the state of New York with 20 years of experience working in the field of mental health. People seek out counseling for a variety of reasons. It usually means they are looking for solutions to problems or are struggling to move forward in their life.
I have worked in several settings serving young adults, couples, families and older adults. My main theoretical framework include cognitive behavioral and rational emotive modalities; however, I have an eclectic approach to treatment which includes other modalities. In my practice I am supportive and non-judgmental; always looking for strengths and resilience so whatever negative feelings or symptoms you are experiencing are alleviated and addressed. I help to find and fix the root cause of problems so moving forward you have new tools and coping skills which will serve you well in managing future crises. I love being a counselor and am flexible, non-judgmental and compassionate. I look forward to working with you to make life good.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem

Karlene is an amazing woman and continues to help me by being lovely to speak with, always listens and always lets you speak first if you have something to say, so understanding and down to earth. Therapy done correctly I would say.

Karlene Clarke has convinced me that therapy is for everyone. I didnt think before going to Karlene that therapy was for me but fortunately was proven wrong. Karlene is amazing at what she does and I would recommend anyone who hasnt tried therapy, to go to her and let her help you work through the things going on in your life.
