About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and in Louisiana with over 12 years of experience in individual and group therapy, primarily in crisis and trauma. I have worked with clients of varying diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD, psychosis, as well as substance abuse and dual diagnosis. Most of my clients have been adults, but, in addition, I have over two years of experience working with families, including couples, parents, children, and chronically suicidal teens. I have used all kinds of creative interventions, including art, music, animal-assisted, Tai Chi, yoga, mindfulness, writing, and life narrative.

My primary goal is to help you identify, manage, and work through any emotional or behavioral problems that impede your quality of life. My role as a therapist is not to judge, but rather to listen and provide support while you work to face problems head-on. I will guide you to navigate to the root cause of your personal crisis, while learning valuable coping skills that will help you stabilize your mood and behaviors

Today’s session was great! I was completely stressed at the start but Norma taught me the grounding exercise and I was calmed afterwards

Norma is n excellent therapist who listens intently and has genuine empathy. She has made a meaningful and impactful difference in my life. She helped and supported me through an extremely difficult patch in my life, making valuable suggestions and observations. I have worked with several therapists in the past and Norma has been the best and most influential therapist I have worked with.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my therapy experience with Norma. She is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging and I look forward to our sessions each week. She always sends me worksheets on coping skills and triggers in the middle of the week that help me throughout my week until our next visit. I would recommend her to anyone.

She is a great listener and always has the best advice! I've only been with her for a month, but she has helped me open my eyes to the reality of my situation and continues to be the best support, even on days that we do not have a scheduled appointment.

After just a couple of sessions with Norma Clark, I was absolutely impressed with her professionalism, compassion, and non-judgmental approach to Counseling! After a few weeks of therapy, I had finally found success with overcoming depression, anxiety, low self esteem, and alcoholism in which I had dealt with over most of my lifetime. Outstanding work Norma!

Norma really understands me and my background. She's a caring person who is very positive. She responds in a timely manner and i feel like i can talk to her without judgement.

Work with me!
