I've been working with Claudia for over two years now, and I'm happy that I have her as my therapist. She understands my experiences and the things that I need and often provides me with the affirmation that I needed to work through my issues. If there is disagreement, she would provide me with important input and insights that can help me think in a more logical and appropriate direction.

Dr. Herrera is amazing. She has helped me develop a perspective about parenthood and grief that I couldn’t have come up with on my own. She responds on a timely manner and is always so flexible with my busy schedule.

Dr. Herrera is wonderful. She is kind, compassionate and most importantly non-judgmental. She gives great advice and tools to use to get through my struggles. For example, helping me change my words to say what I am saying but in a less harsh way. I really appreciate working with Dr. Herrera.

If you need someone who is punctual, respectful, professional, thoughtful, kind, and real with you then Dr. Herrera is who you want! I tried one therapist on better help before Dr. Herrera and I was ready to give up on therapy. Something told me to try someone else and im glad it was Dr. Herrera.

Claudia has already been so helpful in more ways than I can begin to describe. She understands the issues I would like to work through and is open minded and willing to soak in all the information I am giving to her. I would strongly recommend anyone her way knowing that she will be helpful.

I would highly recommend Claudia Herrera! She is a wonderful, kind and caring therapist. She has made me feel very safe and comfortable to be able to express some deep and personal emotions. She helped me through a crisis where I was crippled with anxiety and depression. In just a few weeks I am in such a better place and I don't think I would be without her support and guidance! I consider Claudia my Therapeutic Partner on this journey of mental and emotional health...I am grateful to have found her

The most kind and understanding therapist. She is amazing and helping me through my trauma. She understands what I need and what I am saying I don’t feel like I have to over explain myself like I did with other therapists who weren’t as equipped for heavy trauma. Claudia makes me feel safe and helps me see my potential and she helps me believe in my abilities to change my life. It helps me see my abilities too which has helped me grow a lot
