Claudia is truly a 5 star therapist & human being! From the jump she has been nothing but professional, kind, informative, and sincerely a force for good in my life. She has a talent for making difficult topics approachable, in a non judgemental environment, where healing and understanding happen seamlessly. I love that she provides practical tools & habits to incorporate outside of therapy and I leave each session with new insights into (and ways to heal from) the stresses in my life. 10/10 - I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Claudia if you're seeking therapy.

I came to Claudia feeling so broken and hopeless. Claudia helped me see my strength and taught me a plethora of ways to stay present while managing anxiety and depression. 10/10 would recommend!

Claudia has been very kind and attentive with me since our first interaction. She is professional and a great listener. I really appreciate that she knows how to ask the right questions and is willing to engage in deep conversation. She also offers constructive criticism in a way that is both helpful and considerate of my feelings.
