Claudia specializes in children and families and has a decade of experience working in the child welfare system, mental health field and educational settings. Her unique, Christ-centered, therapeutic approach skillfully weaves together biblical principles with a vast array of clinically-based interventions that address her clients’ spiritual, emotional, and cognitive needs.
She works with children, adolescents and adults seeking counseling to overcome depression, anxiety, trauma and domestic violence among other challenges. When working with children, Claudia infuses the counseling process with assorted Play/Art Therapy techniques designed to engage young people on their level in a creative, non-threatening environment.
Claudia’s overarching mission as a counselor is to help her clients realize an improved quality of life. She believes that no matter what challenges her clients may face, the road to renewal and restoration can always be traveled, and she is eager to partner with them along the way.
Come to Me, all you who labor
and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause
you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh
your souls. Mathew 11:28 (AMP)
