Dr. Carol Clark graduated from Trenton State College (now The College of New Jersey) in 1990 with a Master's degree in Counseling. She moved to Miami and, after attaining her license, became a Certified Addictions Professional through the Florida Certification Board. She then attended the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists and the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, thereby earning a doctoral degree and the right to the title of Sex Therapist. She is a Board Certified Sex Therapist through the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), the American Board of Sexology (ABS), and the Therapist Certification Association (TCA). She taught Human Sexuality, Group Counseling, and Substance Abuse Counseling for 18 years at Carlos Albizu University in Miami and opened her own institutes of Addictions Therapy, Sex Therapy, and Transgender Care before launching the International Institute of Clinical Sexology. She is the author of Addict America: The Lost Connection, a valuable resource for both clinicians and the general public, as it explores the overall addictive manner in which we live our lives and how that disconnects us from ourselves, our relationships, and our spiritual lives.
