Thank you for your interest in working with me as a counselor. I work with adolescents, adults, and families primarily within an educational setting but I also accept private appointments both locally here in Yokohama/Tokyo and via videoconference. I look forward to hearing from you. Please contact me via the form below. – Adam Clark

I am originally from Gloucester, Massachusetts on the coast of the Northeastern United States. We moved around quite a bit when I was a small child but settled in Andover, Massachusetts for my primary and secondary education.

After graduating with an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from the College of Wooster in Wooster Ohio, I spent the first 15 years of my career fostering social/emotional learning in the experiential education field. My first position was on the faculty of Hopkins School in New Haven, CT as the founding director of the Adam Kreiger Adventure Program and then with Project Adventure, Inc in Brattleboro VT.

In 2001, I shifted focus internationally and moved to Tokyo to work in educational reform with Project Adventure Japan furthering experiential learning approaches to social emotional learning and adventure based counseling related outcomes along with Japanese educators in schools and outdoor education centers.

In 2006, I returned to a school community again joining the faculty at Yokohama International School.

In the spring of 2012 I completed my masters degree in Counseling Psychology at the Graduate Centre for Applied Psychology at Athabasca University, Alberta, Canada.

I have been in Japan the majority of my adult life and now consider Yokohama home.
