Jason Clark, LPC
I believe that therapy is a place where one can explore what it means to be themselves in a nonjudgmental, supportive, and accepting environment. One of my main goals in therapy is for the client to get a better understanding of who they are and use that knowledge to empower themselves to make the positive changes they want to make in their lives. I believe that action alongside therapy is important and that getting moving doing something one is passionate about can be tremendously healing for the mind and body. I believe things like exercise, music, drama, art, writing, and dance have a place in therapy and can be incorporated into traditional treatment. I understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to therapy and I use an integrative approach drawing upon techniques from ACT, DBT, existential, psychodynamic and narrative therapies. My main priority is to meet you where you are at and help you reach your potential, whatever that may mean to you.
In my free time I enjoy performing improv comedy, playing music, and doing outdoor activities such as rock climbing, paddling backpacking, and hiking. I was born and raised just outside of Chicago in Buffalo Grove and have always considered Chicago home. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Missouri and earned my Master’s from DePaul in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
