Approach to Therapy
Dr. Clarke’s approach to therapy is integrative and incorporates a number of insight-oriented, relational, and skills based interventions based on the client’s needs. Dr. Clarke’s hope is that after engaging in therapy, students will have a better understanding of the intrapsychic, interpersonal and socio-cultural factors that impede their wellbeing while reinstating previous and activating new skills and strengths to promote wellness.
Approach to Supervision
Dr. Clarke’s approach to supervision is developmental, collaborative and trainee centered. Dr. Clarke’s strongly believes in building a trusting and open, supervisory relationship that allows supervision meetings to dynamically shifting focus between the client, supervisee, therapeutic dyad and the supervisory dyad. Her view of supervising is that supervisees will not only develop strong clinician skills but also develop an integrated and authentic clinical identity.
Approach to Wellness
Dr. Clarke believes balance is key to overall wellness. Although “balance” varies per person, Dr. Clarke values dedicating time for work, fun, relaxation and introspection.
