Tracey M. Clark, M.A. LMFT; Owner
I’m a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed through the Board of Behavioral Sciences here in California. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science and minored in Creative Writing at Concordia University, Irvine while competing in collegiate softball on an athletic scholarship. After my undergraduate studies were complete, I immediately sought out graduate programs and attended Pepperdine University to complete my Master’s in Clinical Psychology; Marriage and Family Therapy. I’ve always wanted to be a psychotherapist. I value deep connection and enjoy helping people make effective changes for personal growth.Upon completing my Bachelor’s degree, I was employed as a paraprofessional and substitute teacher at a non-public school for children with severe autism and related behavioral challenges. As my career advanced, I continued working with individuals with various developmental disabilities by providing case management at the Regional Center of Orange County. I continued this position while interning as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Graduate school led me to develop my clinical skills working with variety of populations. While I loved each and every setting I’ve worked with, I have a personal connection with the LGBTQ population that helped develop my particular niche. While I originally set out with one speciality, through my own journey and experience as an adoptive parent, I have sought out training and education in adoption, trauma, and therapeutic parenting. I have since included this speciality into my practice.
Diana Martinez, LMFT, M.S., Clinician
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I graduated with my Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University-Idaho and shortly after began to work as a counselor at a residential facility for adolescents struggling with addiction and mood disorders. It was after three years of working in this setting that I decided to return to complete my Masters of Science in Counseling; Marriage and Family Therapy from California State University, Fullerton. While completing my graduate studies, I worked with students/adults in the university setting as an academic advisor which allowed me to gain experience with diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.Since completing my degree, I began my internship within the community mental health setting and continued to grow as a therapist by providing services to children, adolescents, and families. Through my employment in this setting, I was trained in the use of the evidence base practice of Family Functional Therapy to help clients/families with parent-child relational issues in addition to applying interventions aimed at assisting various populations. My professional and personal experience contributed to my passion and interest working with the LGBTQ community. I provide therapy in both English and Spanish, and utilize a humanistic approach in working with my clients.
We are truly honored to have an affirmative practice for our community. The very core of Fullerton Community Counseling is about providing counseling and support to LGBTQ individuals and their families during any point of their journey.
We don’t just have a practice that tolerates your identity. We provide quality, affirming therapy to individuals, couples and families within the community. There are plenty of cis and heteronormative spaces in the world. This one is just for you.
***For transgender individuals:
Although we believe that trans and gender non-conforming individuals should be able to make their own healthcare decisions through informed consent, we realize that is not always the way the healthcare system operates. Because of this , we are able to provide letters for gender affirming surgeries.
