Shameka Clark-Savage, LPC
My name is Shameka Clark-Savage and I was born and raised in Virginia. I completed my undergraduate degree in Liberal Arts & Education and Masters of Education in School/Community Counseling at Virginia State University. I completed my internship providing outpatient therapy for a Christian Counseling organization where I worked with an array of disorders and life changing situations. I also worked at The James House which is a domestic violence shelter/safe haven for individuals who have experienced physical abuse or sexual trauma at any point in their lives. Throughout my counseling experience I've had the pleasure of working with individuals experiencing grief, depression, career changes, relationship concerns, and stress related issues. I've worked with individuals with diagnoses of Bipolar, Major Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, OCD, PTSD, and Schizophrenia. My strengths are I am very resourceful and really take pride in helping individuals access those resources.
My Therapeutic approach focuses on the Cognitive Behavioral Approach. I thoroughly believe that if you can change the way that you think and approach a situation then you can change the behavior and outcome. I love when my clients are able to find the happy medium and able to function at their best potential possible. With the twists and turns of life you may find yourself having difficulties juggling it all or maintaining your sanity. Let me help you figure it out. Your mental health is vital and I'm glad that you have taken the time to focus on your self-care. I look forward to working with you through your process.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Grief, Self esteem, Coaching, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Intellectual Disability, Life Purpose, Money and Financial Issues, Multicultural Concerns, Self-Love
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy

Shameka is amazing. I did in person counseling for a bit at another place before I found BetterHelp, but never quite got the helpful resources and feedback to help me manage my anxiety and depression. Shameka gave me worksheets, helped me problem solve, and so much more. I would definitely recommend her. Thank you again Shameka
