Richard Clark

(MA, LMFT)

About Me

I earned my BA in Psychology from California State University, Long Beach and my MA in Counseling Psychology from National University, San Diego.

I have been counseling individuals, couples, families, and children for over 20 years in private practice, non-profit community organizations, hospitals, clinics, and schools. Having worked in a variety of diverse settings, I’ve gained valuable training and experience from many perspectives and incorporate this knowledge into guiding resolution for each unique client’s challenges.

Specializing in Brief Solution Focused Therapy, I’m often able to help resolve client issues in relatively few sessions by setting clear, well defined outcomes and implementing strategic interventions designed for efficient and lasting change.

Richard Clark has been very helpful. I would not have been able to successfully maneuver back into the world without his help in changing my perception. Each week he has helped me changed my perspective a little bit so that the issues that were causing me so much anxiety have found a more realistic place in my life. I can't thank Richard enough.

My therapist is clear and straight forward. Will stop me from spiraling downwards to challenging me see things differently or to see the root of it. It is very refreshing. I never walk out of our sessions feeling heavy or down, but passionate about trying different perspectives on my situation. Thank you

Richard is a great Councelor. He is more of a life coach then your typical psycho therapist. He listens and gives very sound advice. I highly recommend Richard to anyone needing some additional guidance in navigating thru these difficult times.
