Aubrey Clark

Aubrey Clark is a licensed associate counselor in Glendale, AZ, who specializes in the integration of Christian theology and spirituality, with the best of today’s evidence-based therapeutic models and interventions. Marriage brought her to Arizona a couple years ago, and although she misses the California beach and the Indiana cornfields, she’s slowly growing an appreciation for the desert views here. Outside of counseling, she loves music in all its forms, photography, playing with my cats, comedy, CS Lewis, spending time in nature, and hanging out with loved ones.

Aubrey is trauma-informed and attachment-oriented, which means she will look for the root causes to one’s current issues. Trained in EMDR, the enneagram and spiritual disciplines, clients will get a tailored-fit treatment that allows for exploration of many areas of their life. She holds a MA in Pastoral Counseling from Talbot School of Theology, and a MS in Counseling from Hope International University. After working in full-time ministry for many years, she transitioned to fully focusing on counseling. Due to previous ministry involvement, I am particularly passionate about walking alongside ministry leaders and their families.

Karissa Whitlatch

Our bodies and brains are wonderfully made to heal, grow, and change so we can live our story today with intentionality, resilience, and healthy relationships. My hope is to walk alongside you, helping you (re)discover the tools and strengths you were made with, so you can enjoy your future story. In my life, having Jesus and His Word as my foundation have been essential in helping me navigate difficult times and heal from brokenness. I truly believe and have personally experienced what Curt Thompson MD, author of Anatomy of the Soul stated, “The tools He (God) has built inside each one of us can help us move towards lasting change.” God is the ultimate healer and I find joy in walking alongside individuals to discover these built in tools to bring about healing, hope, and purpose in the life we have been given.

As a clinical supervisor and licensed professional counselor at Stories Counseling, I received a Masters in Counseling from Phoenix Seminary and am currently a PhD student at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I come from a trauma-informed approach that integrates attachment and somatic based interventions such as EMDR, Sensorimotor psychotherapy, Internal family systems, Strengths based, and Solution focused approaches. From a history of working at a domestic violence shelter and currently in private practice, I work with individuals who have trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, boundary struggles, stress, struggles in relating with God, toxic relationships, parenting struggles, and many other struggles. It is an honor for me to support individuals and provide a safe space for those who are trying to gain insight and to restore their story.
