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. This is my first time trying therapy and Claire gave me everything I wanted to get out from this. I would recommend Claire to anyone who has had the misfortune of dealing with a narcissist, anyone who is going through addiction, family trauma… etc she made me feel seen. She made me feel heard and she validated my reality and experiences but most importantly she has given me tools I need to deal with experiences and has always asked the right questions to help me shift my mindset to address the root of my issues. Thank you, Claire for all of your help!
