Yael Clark, M.Psych.
Educational & Developmental Psychologist
Narrative of Services:
I specialize in treating childhood Anxiety from a perspective that incorporates family systems therapy and cognitive behavioral approaches such as ACT and CBT (particularly, ERP). My business name is “SupportingParents” as young children especially need their parents as Anxiety and OCD coaches. I, therefore, treat children and parents. Common referral issues are Anxiety, OCD, ASD, ADHD, and BFRBs. Anger management referrals are often Anxiety referrals in disguise!
12 years of experience in treating pediatric OCD. Ongoing professional supervision with an IOCDF recognized practitioner who also has completed the BTTI training. I am registered to do the BTTI training for Paediatric OCD in November 2019.
Diversity Statement: I work a lot with the Hebrew, Russian, and Greek-speaking communities and although I cannot counsel in these languages, I have basic conversational skills in all.
No specific training. I am an open-minded and accepting person and have worked with clients of many nationalities, diverse gender identities, and” non-conventional” family structures. I believe strongly in self-determination and self-identification; I work with the individual as they present themselves.
