Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you," (Jean-Paul Sartre). We all have had things done to us. These things do not define us - the key is what we do with them afterward. I believe each and every person has what they need right inside of them; thus my job is not to fix or change, but to teach the skills to help you tap into that inner source. The answers you are looking for are available and can be found.
My name is Tezlyn Clark, but many people call me by my nickname "Sam." Please feel free to call me whichever one you wish. I hold a Master's degree from The University of Alaska, Anchorage. As an eclectic counselor, I pull from a variety of theories, including Cognitive Behavioral, Existential, Family, and Humanistic, just to name a few. I have over 10 years in the counseling field and I am also trained in EMDR and DBT. As a therapist, I create a non-judgmental, supportive, respectful environment where a person can feel safe sharing their thoughts and struggles.
I work with adolescents and adults in the following areas:
- Abuse / Trauma (which can also include excessive criticism or shaming, or where one's needs were not met or boundaries were not respected),
- Child Behavioral Issues,
- Stress / Anxiety,
- Identity / Self-Esteem,
- Domestic Violence,
- Anger Management,
- Borderline Personality Disorder, and
- Personal Growth.
