Clark Ausloos, MA, LPC, LPSC, NCC, is a second-year doctoral student in the counselor education program at the University of Toledo. Having been a graduate student in some form since 2014, Clark is familiar with the trials and tribulations of being in graduate school and is passionate about sharing these experiences with others.

Clark enjoys philosophical discourse, mountains, music and always being right.
