Hi! My name is Becky Clark and I’m a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey. I have four years of clinical experience working in the behavioral/mental health field. I have experience in helping clients with career difficulties, military families and veterans, coping with life changes, and executive and professional coaching. I also am highly interested in helping out neurodivergent populations (ADHD and Autism) and military families. My counseling style is laid-back and I take a strength based approach. I like working with clients on their strengths and how they can use them to solve their problems. I always say my office (whether in person or virtual) is a safe place where you can share your thoughts and feelings. I am here to help you with whatever is going on in your life.
I once worked with a client who came to me in crisis struggling with family relationships and mood swings. Over the course of three months, together we were able to establish boundaries and improve communication which led to less changes in mood. They felt very confident and were able to lead a fulfilling life, and learn to interact with their family in a positive manner.
I normally use a task-centered approach with clients. I help clients identify their strengths, how they can use them to solve problems, and troubleshoot any issues along the way. I enjoy setting goals with my clients so you can feel a sense of accomplishment as our time together goes on.
The first session is an opportunity for both of us to get to know each other. I will ask questions to get a better understanding of who you are, and give you the opportunity to share what you hope to gain from our time together.
Ever since I was in high school, I found psychology and the human mind fascinating. I actually started my college career majoring in engineering, but quickly realized I was passionate about helping people. I discovered that majoring in social work was a way to combine my love of the mind and my passion for helping others. Being a therapist has been one of the most rewarding careers and I love working with my clients.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Most of my sessions with clients tend to be driven by task-centered practices. This means I work with clients to use their current strengths and resiliency in order to solve their problems. I focus on the here and now in order to move forward. I believe therapy is a collaborative process where my clients and I are a team. I will work with you to set realistic goals to give a sense of accomplishment and achievement. Your input is one of the biggest factors in creating goals, and I encourage you to speak your mind in a safe space!
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I utilize a variety of different evidence-based methods including cognitive-behavioral therapy, task-centered practices, and client-center therapy. I also utilize mindfulness techniques, and motivational interviewing. I believe every person is unique and there is not a “one size fits all” treatment plan. Your plan will be tailored to your specific needs.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I have worked with adults in many different populations from various communities. I am extremely open to listening to your story and understanding your cultural perspective. I am interested in working with clients going through life transitions, career changes, and struggles with focus and attention. While I do work with all age groups, my client focus is adults and individual therapy.
