Dr.Clark is the most heartfelt person I have ever talked to - she helped me recognize and work through multiple traumas, as well as many other issues and rebuild a healthier mind and a kinder, more open soul. Provided great ideas and always listening to my worries with out judgment. She is truly gifted as a counselor and a human being, someone to look up to. The words of healing, wisdom and knowledge she provided me with were truly healing and I cannot thank enough her! Thank you for the human warmth and welcoming of any topics. Thank you so much for everything! You have enhanced my understanding of many things by a great deal for which I am truly grateful. At any given time I would gladly come back to Dr. Clark and recommend her 100%!

Dr. Clark is extremely compassionate & insightful sends excellent worksheets to change behaviours. She’s very responsive, which is very helpful.
I am struggling to change behaviours, particularly with boundaries. I wish Better Help also offered prescribing psychiatrists.
Also I have yet to have a live (remote) session with Dr. Clarke which I very much need. I think it’s a function of Better Help’s scheduling vs. Dr. Clarke. I recommend Dr. Clarke wholeheartedly.

It took a while to find a counsellor that really had time for me, and fit my needs. The first time Dr. Clark and I matched, we didn't even have an appointment but she was able to call me for 5 minutes quickly to help calm me down from a downwards spiral. It was super sweet. I really am enjoying our sessions, and I love talking with her.

Working with Dr. Clark has reassured me that there are caring and professional counselors in the world, who genuinely want what is best for their patients. I fully recommend Dr. Clark, who was able to help empower me to face a number of major life challenges and overcome said challenges in a healthy manner. I have grown as a person because of her and always know that if I ever face a major crisis in my life, she will be there to help me process and work through it in a safe and compassionate environment, free from judgement.

If you want to talk with someone who will help you through a tough time in your life, Dr. Clark is that person. She understands how to put things in a perspective that make your worse days bearable and you best days incredible. She is available for phone chats which is what I love because text messaging isn't really my thing. I would highly recommend her.

Written by A.M on Apr 29, 2016 after counseling with Thelma for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, self esteem, and depression

Dr. Clark is absolutely wonderful! I appreciate that she takes the time to really understand each message I send her. I needed someone that could be there for comfort during hard times, but also give their honest opinion. She has been able to make me realize things that I thought I already knew - things that I needed that extra push to fully understand and accept.
