Video Counseling works well for those clients who are not able to attend sessions in person, either because of geographic location or disability and do not have a clinician in their geographical area who is experienced with their specific concerns. Dr. Clark offers Video Counseling/Evaluation for:
- Gender exploration
- Transgender transition
- Sex addiction recovery
- General sexuality education/consultation
The process works in a similar way to face-to-face counseling, except it is via an electronic medium. We make an appointment, you fill out forms online, make your payment online, and then we meet on Zoom at our scheduled time.
I meet with clients on Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 10am until 9pm, Eastern Standard Time (EST). I will initiate the telephone or Zoom call within 5 minutes of your scheduled time and sessions last for 55 minutes. Zoom is password protected and HIPAA compliant, but confidentiality can never be totally guaranteed.
The fee is $200.00 US per session. In some circumstances, after the first session, we may meet for half an hour for a fee of $100.00. I do not accept insurance. I am also not licensed to provide psychotherapy outside of Florida; however, I do evaluations for transitioning people.
If possible, I prefer that you call me directly at 305-773-8785 to schedule your appointment, otherwise we can do it by email. When your appointment is scheduled, you can go to the following links to complete the forms and payment:
You may also complete the History Form if you like to facilitate your initial session, but this is not required.
In addition to the forms and payment, I will also need a copy of a photo ID – driver’s license, passport, or other. You may email a copy or photograph to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will first discuss what brings you to counseling and what your goals are. I will then either take your history or review the form you completed on line with you. This is the beginning of clarifying what will be addressed in future sessions. Finally, we will discuss how often you will need to meet and what you can expect to accomplish.
This is also the time when we may discuss with you the need for more intensive therapy, which I may not be able to provide through Video Counseling. Appropriate referrals will be explored if this is the case.
This question will be better answered after the first session, when we will discuss where you are in your transition and what your goals are. Except in very unusual circumstances, we will need a minimum of three sessions. I promise to always be respectful of your time and finances, while still being ethical and responsible.
My letters of recommendation for hormones and surgery have been accepted by surgeons in the United States, Canada, and Thailand. I have had only one endocrinologist refuse to accept a letter for hormones due to the counseling not being in person, so I suggest that you check with your endocrinologist in advance.
