Team Vibe

Aasiyah Clark
MA, LPC

Feel Aasiyah's Vibe:

Working with women, especially mothers, who have experienced trauma or whose children have experienced trauma, and women struggling with anxiety, is foremost of her practice. As a woman and mother herself, she understand the needs of our children, partners, family, and career can overwhelm us and cause us to put our own needs and wants aside. As a counselor, she wants to be that voice in a woman's head that helps her find her confidence and boldness to push past her supposed limits and upgrade herself!

Though she has worked with children, teens, and men, she has chosen to focus her practice on women because she believes the investments in women's health and wellbeing are investments in the community.

How She Rocks:

You're stronger than you think! She will draw out those strengths so you can be your best self. She is supportive of your struggles and fears, and will also challenge you to smash those fears and deconstruct the obstacles that seem to stand in your way. She won't be passive or allow you to be passive about overcoming your unique challenges. No sitting back and asking you, "So how does that make you feel?" She will be with you, as you unpack your life experiences.

Her Cred:

She is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health and a specialization in School Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy. She has over ten years of experience in the mental health field working with diverse populations including serving as a Certified Rape Crisis Advocate, providing juvenile sex offender assessments to determine the risk of reoffending, and, in court, advocating for clients and providing court documentation. She has collaborated with legal parties and education officials at all levels.

Working with women, especially mothers, who have experienced trauma or whose children have experienced trauma, and women struggling with anxiety, is foremost in my practice. As a woman and mother myself, I understand the needs of our children, partners, family, and career can overwhelm us and cause us to put our own needs and wants aside. As a counselor, I want to be that voice in a woman's head that helps her find her confidence and boldness to push past her supposed limits and upgrade herself!
