About the Presenter:

Dr. Clark is Certified in Sex Therapy, EMDR, and Addictions and in private practice for 25 years. In time, she conceptualized our stimulating lifestyles as a perpetually addictive state that disconnects us from each other and the universal life force. Her books, Addict America: The Lost Connection, and My Pocket Therapist: 12 Tools for Living in Connection, are life-altering guides and excellent clinical resources. By applying the healing strategies set forth in these books, readers will reestablish Connections in their lives that seemed lost forever.
