About me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with 15 years experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I work with a variety of concerns including trauma, addiction, body image and weight loss issues, relationship issues, and life purpose. I have also worked with many people recovering from mass traumas, such as school shootings.

I have presented at International conferences and written 25 continuing education courses for psychotherapists. My goal is always to identify ways the practice of psychotherapy can be improved, and find new and innovative ways clinicians can help their clients.

In my free time, I enjoy ultrarunning, bringing my three rescue horses up the levels in dressage and completing a long overdue manuscript.

I believe in empowering my clients, treating them with respect, and honoring their life choices. I believe that the keys to improved mental health and happiness exist inside every client. My approach is existential in nature, and looks to help people find what is truly most important to them, and move in that direction. Together, I believe we can find a way to a fulfilling, rewarding, and meaningful life - regardless of what life has put you through.

I look forward to working with you!

Claire is amazing. She hears me and pushes me to grow. She both flows from session to session, topic to topic, with me but also points out major themes.

Claire was very helpful and understanding during our calls. She was personable and listened to me helping me feel heard and validating me. She also helped bring up good questions and thoughts to challenge my beliefs. I would suggest her for anyone looking for a supportive and open therapist.
