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 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!

She is an active participant in my journey and provides tools for me to use. She responds to every journal entry with excellent feedback. Thank you Dr. Clarke!

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!
