Jayyidah Clarke, LCSW-C

Licensed Certified Social Worker-Clinical (LCSW-C). I received my Master’s in Social Work from New York University. I have over 10 years’ experience working in the behavioral health field. I believe that each of us holds the capacity to utilize our personal creativity to resolve life’s challenges. Through this creative process, we collaborate to work towards developing new insights that inform change. I believe treatment is most effective when we not only observe the challenges, symptoms or problems but also assess your strengths. Sometimes life brings us opportunities to see ourselves more clearly through that with which we struggle. I have experience working with trauma. I am a fan of mindfulness-based practices and incorporate this in treatment when clinically appropriate. I utilize EBP, CBT,  and play therapy as needed with children and adolescents.

Then, there are the clubs we are invited to join, but don’t want to: depression, addiction, grief, aging, trauma…just to name a few. Then, there is a therapeutic club that provides a safe haven to share your stressors, grief, challenges and explore yourself in a safe and validating environment. My name is Gail Wilson and I graduated from Loyola College in 1986 and earned my LCPC in 1998. Through my career, I have traveled with many to assist them in their journey of exploring that club they did not want to join.
