Claire Wilson

LICSW

About me

I am licensed in Alabama with 4 years of professional work experience. In that time my primary specialization has been in the field of addiction/substance abuse. While treating individuals with substance use disorders, it is necessary to also address the underlying issues that drove the substance use in the first place. This has given me the opportunity to help my clients with additional issues such as depression, anxiety, personality disorders, family issues, self-esteem issues, spirituality, and trauma. I am trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help clients move through and cope with traumatic experiences that they have experienced.

I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support you and offer as much positive regard that I can offer you in this journey to healing and restoration.

Claire was able to help me find areas of focus to help me get immediate help with anxiety and self confidence while we began the larger work that will take time and patience. She is very insightful and personable. She gives me the honest feedback I need to hear in a way that makes it easier to swallow.

Claire is so kind! She is so easy to talk to and highlights ways that I don't even realize I feel. She has given me clarification and she isn't just partial to me, but offers an unbiased take to circumstances I talk to her about. She is truly a blessing and I have enjoyed my time with her this far! The exercises and advice she gives me have already improved my outlook. Thank you, Claire!

Claire and I had just started with phone sessions but I was recovering from the Flu. Unfortunately that turned into bronchitis and prevented further sessions and until the near future. I enjoyed our appointment. She’s a very good listener, empathetic and I feel very comfortable speaking with her and opening up.
