Anna Clark, LMFT


My goal is to create a safe, accepting space for my clients. I want them to feel comfortable to show all parts of themselves. When this happens, amazing shifts can occur. I work with people struggling with eating disorders and disordered eating to heal their relationship with themselves, their bodies, and their food.  

Together, we can explore what is getting in the way of feeling the happiness and peace you desire and how to remove those obstacles. My client’s have been able to end their addictions, stop other forms of unhealthy ways of coping and live their life with more presence and self-awareness. 

How I work

I have been providing therapy for individuals, groups, and families for nearly a decade. Pre and post-licensure, I have completed trainings in multiple modalities. I enjoy learning about new psychotherapeutic techniques and sharing them with my clients to bring about lasting healing. 

I don’t believe there is a single, “one-size-fits-all” way to approach therapy. In my sessions, I pull from a number of modalities, including Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

My Why

As a fellow human being with my own journey of growth, I have so much respect and empathy for my clients and feel honored to be a part of their path. I believe the most difficult thing is often accepting all of ourselves and our experiences.

When we reject ourselves, this can lead to so many painful feelings. For example, struggling with never feeling good enough, feeling inadequate, comparing ourselves to others and coming up short, feeling anxious, depressed, and ashamed of oneself.

These feelings can lead someone to become a perfectionist, an overachiever, attempt to make their body into the ideal shape/weight, or escape painful feelings through alcohol, drugs, food, or other means.

Training & Experience

I spent several years providing counseling to youth, having worked in a high school and multiple elementary schools. Working at a community mental health clinic, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of ages including children, teens, and their families facing diverse struggles.

As a therapist at a rape crisis center, I have counseled survivors of sexual assault and trauma and acted as an advocate on their behalf, accompanying survivors during court litigation and medical-legal exams. Prior to my private practice work, I provided individual and group therapy in a partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient program specializing in the treatment of eating disorders.
