LMFT, LPC

About Me

Welcome!
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 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!
Dr. Lisa Clarke

Written on Nov 13, 2022 after therapy with Lisa for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

This is my first experience with therapy and with Dr. Clarke, I am thoroughly convinced everyone can use therapy. Dr. Clarke listens, encourages, understands, and tells me what I need to hear, all with the perfect balance. I'm a stay at home homeschooling mom of 3. It was important to me to have a therapist who could personally relate to that part of my life and Dr. Clarke definitely can, as she has 4 grown children she stayed home with as well. I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Clarke, I highly recommend!

She has been great to this point. She listen and she has pointed out somethings that make me think for the better.

I really enjoy, appreciate and respect Dr Clark. I feel like therapy with Dr Clark has been a great investment in my mental health during some really difficult times in my life.

Dr. Clarke is wonderful to work with. In the limited time we have been working together she has already been able to identify ways to help me reduce my stress level.

She is so nice and listens to understand what you need help with.

Written on Jan 30, 2022 after therapy with Lisa for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and adhd

Dr. Clarke has provided me with invaluable tools, and ways to remember my best affirmations. Her emphasis in the right areas helps me with ongoing ups and downs, as it's not about a dependence on sessions- it's about empowering me to believe I can help myself (because I can!) She is steadfast in her abilities to determine patterns in behavior, and compassionate in the way she helps guide towards important epiphanies.
I am so grateful for the time that I have had during our sessions! If you are looking for a calm, confident, and humble source for support, Dr. Clarke is one of the best.

Dr. Clarke immediately was able to have me start thinking a different way with a simple exercise. They are kind and nurturing and really pay attention. I enjoy their sideline cheering for my progress because it keeps me motivated. It's been a great experience working with Dr. Clarke!

She’s great!!!!

Written on Sep 30, 2021 after therapy with Lisa for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Clarke has been amazing. She has been a pillar of optimism in my life and continues to find ways to alleviate my concerns and keep me on the right path. Best experience I have had with a personal counselor.

Written on Jul 21, 2021 after therapy with Lisa for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Clarke is always so attentive and offers such insight into what is going on in my life. From our first session, I felt 'heard' and the meditation she ended our session on left me feeling calm and at peace in a way I didn't even know I needed! Every session is helpful in moving me forward in my journey to inward peace and energy for life. Thank you Dr. Clarke!!

Dr. Clarke is hands down the most supportive and non-biased counselor I've ever had. I've had counselors ask me " why can't I just be happy." but you will never hear passive or negative comments from her. She's a teacher, shoulder and cheerleader and is highly recommended.

Written on May 18, 2021 after therapy with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Personally, I feel that Dr. Clarke understands me and is highly trained in informing me. She is very personable in her treatment...where I find most therapist provide very vague and blanketed statements. I never leave my session without new perspective and insight.

Written on Jan 29, 2021 after therapy with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Only two sessions in and I am already making progress. I just love her. She gets me. She speaks to me on my level. She reads my messages and listens when I speak. She makes me feel comfortable and no judgment.

Written on Jan 14, 2021 after therapy with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

She is very nice and was eager and willing to help me in time I will tell if can make progress and things improve.

Written on Jan 13, 2021 after therapy with Lisa for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

Even with just 2 sessions with Dr. Clarke, I see a major improvement over my last therapist. She is timely and very professional. I appreciate her note taking and the fact that she reiterates what I need to work on the coming week. She listens closely to be able to help with that’s going on in your head, and most importantly, she is compassionate. I also like that since I want to take a mindfulness path of healing, she is on board to help support me in that. Looking forward to building a professional relationship with her as time goes on!

Written on Jan 08, 2021 after therapy with Lisa for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and anger management

Dr. C has been amazing. I had done therapy on and off for several years, and knew that I needed to kickstart myself towards a better attitude. Initially I was reluctant to sign up, but within just a few weeks, I was seeing improvement in my mental attitude and had the help and accountability I was searching for. I am so happy that I found Dr. C, and look forward to our conversations and continued dialogue.

I’ve only been working with Dr. Clarke a few weeks but I’ve really been enjoying the process. She is very encouraging during each section and I know she’s actually listening to what I’m saying. I would very much recommend Dr. Clarke especially if you’re dealing with anxiety, self-esteem/-confidence issues and/or depression.

Work with me!
