About me

If you are dealing with multiple challenges/obstacles you need to know how to deal with them. Oftentimes we don't feel like we have a handle on our emotions, or how to deal with our personal/work/family relationships. And when such difficulties arise; one cannot function effectively in life. The first step is to acknowledge that you want to feel better hence wanting to change your thinking and behavior.

My goal in working with you is to get you to a better space where you develop a clearer, stronger, positive, and self -reflective view of yourself and the environment around you. With many years of experience and practice, I offer an empathetic, warm, friendly, and honest approach to therapy which will hopefully help you learn more about yourself. As a therapist, my treatment style is solution focused hence I like working with clients in short-term treatment who are coming to therapy for crises intervention and/or a goal specific need.

In the beginning of working with me I will want to know what brought you to treatment in your own words, and what you would like to get out of treatment. In addition depending on the work that I a m doing with you; I may provide you with literature for you to read and/or strategies/techniques to work on during your treatment process. I believe in the client being an active participant in their treatment process. I believe in holding my clients accountable for their actions; which I believe helps build healthy confidence as they navigate how to resolve their problems. In addition I believe understanding where someone came from culturally and environmentally is essential in helping them go forward. I will always acknowledge and validate a client''s culture, background, as well as their true authentic self.

Claudia is great. I think she listens really well to your concerns/ problems and she identifies the cause and then helps you overcome them.
