Kerri Clark

I am currently finishing my Master’s in Marriage and Family degree through Amridge University. I aim to provide a warm and welcoming environment to facilitate safe and open conversations with my clients. I am passionate about helping couples heal and strengthen their relationships whether they are dealing with infidelity, conflicting personalities and ideals, or just getting started in their relationship. I also have a passion for helping individuals live to their fullest potential as they navigate their daily struggles. My work focuses on opening lines of communication and creating healthy and realistic expectations for others and themselves by using a cognitive approach. I believe in collaborating with my clients to help them reach their goals. You are not alone; I am here to walk this journey with you!
