About

I am a patient, warm, and understanding therapist. I challenge members to be able to do the work of therapy in a supportive, comfortable environment. When I'm not doing therapy, I am trying to learn French and Creole. So far I have two plants, and I'm hoping to become more of a plant mom.

In therapy, if there are some areas that feel really uncomfortable to you, know that we will be walking that path together. You will not have to go it alone.

Get to know Jendaya Clark

I wanted to become a therapist, first, to help people. Second, to challenge them to become a better version of themselves—not necessarily placing someone in a situation where they had to be terrified of that change, but they could acknowledge and embrace the discomfort and pursue the best self they could be.

I had a longtime interest in OCD. I was introduced to OCD through a couple of people I worked with in private practice and community mental health. They had managed their OCD through previous treatments. When I talked with them about other concerns, I realized there were other things that came up for them in that lifelong pursuit. That became something of interest to me—how could I better help them? That drew me to NOCD.

I have experience working with anxiety and depression, and I have a background in addiction work as well.

If there are some areas that feel really uncomfortable to you, know that we will be walking that path together. We certainly want to make sure you make progress in addressing that, but you will not have to go it alone.

I would encourage you to communicate with me. This is a safe space. You could utilize the NOCD website or app to write down those scary thoughts and communicate them in a different way. There are a number of other resources NOCD offers, such as peer support through member advocates. They may be able to help you return to therapy and be able to identify those thoughts.

NOCD therapists are trained by our world-renowned clinical leadership team.

This was a really great session that helped prepare me for a major life event I have coming up! I gained a new perspective on how to distance myself from my thoughts. Also had an insightful conversation about the various themes of OCD. Thank you!!

This was an extremely helpful session. I had a difficult week and knew I needed to discuss some important topics with my therapist, which we did. I felt immensely better after the session.

Jendaya is really helping me through a period of intense anxiety with patience and compassion and still keeping me accountable for tracking my compulsions and rituals even when it feels extra difficult. My anxiety levels always feel reduced after our sessions.

I have been working with my therapist for about a month and a half and I’ve noticed significant progress with my OCD symptoms. While recovering from OCD is a daily challenge, I’ve felt supported by my therapist throughout and she has helped me uncover what is fueling my anxiety and OCD so that I can recover faster. She also has provided plenty of helpful tips and is open to answering any questions that I have about recovery.
