About me

My name is Dr. Lisa Clarke. I look forward to walking with you on your journey toward more excellent health and wellness!

I am a Doctor of Psychology and hold an LMFT licensure in Virginia and an LPC license in Idaho. I am a certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP). I also hold certifications in Nutrition for Mental Health and Affirmative Strategies for Addressing Sexual and Gender Identity for LGBTQ+ clients. I have been in the helping profession for 20 years and have been licensed since 2015.

I am a U.S. military veteran. It has been my great pleasure to serve diverse racial, ethnic, and gender populations in civilian and military spheres.

My work spans across a wide range of issues to include anxiety, depression, adjustment to life transitions, prenatal education, postnatal depression in women, postpartum depression in men, parenting concerns, relocations, deployment, family-of-origin interference, interracial marriage and family concerns, incest survivor, grief and loss, social phobia, infidelity, communication issues, parent and adult-child estrangement, and self-esteem.

My integrative approach includes, but is not limited to, Adlerian theoretical approach which emphasizes “Encouragement” toward the enhancement of your human experience and success! I employ Solution-Focused therapy to guide us in searching for solutions. I also use Interpersonal Psychotherapy for improving and developing relationships as well as neurologically informed CBT techniques toward the goal of rewiring the anxious, worried, and panicked brain.

Again, I look forward to connecting with and walking alongside you as you create new joys and wellness in your life!

Written on Jan 22, 2024 after therapy with Lisa for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and anger management

She is very compassionate, listens to my concerns and is very detail oriented. She helps me discover the basis for my anxiety and depression but then brings me forward and helps me discover new ways of looking and dealing with work/life balance, my thought patterns, how to deal with communication/difficult topics with my spouse. All of these things are helping me to become the person I want to be. Thanks Dr Clarke!
