"Claudia is a warm and encouraging therapist who is highly skilled in treating trauma survivors and people going through significant life changes."
I actually do! Click here for the trauma workbook!
For as long as I can remember, my calling has been to heal trauma. From confronting generational curses within my own family to working with children globally whose childhoods were marred by trauma. I've served adults ranging from 99 years old who have bravely faced and shared their pain, to individuals in both inpatient and outpatient settings grappling with thoughts of suicide and self-harm stemming from the disruptive impact of trauma.
I'm no stranger to trauma and understand the struggles and weight it carries. I know the exhaustion of being perceived as the "strong, resilient one." You didn't choose your trauma, and you deserve to break free from its chains. There is healing, hope, and a profound sense of freedom from carrying the burdens of your pain. You, and others like you, are the driving force behind my passion.
Here you are, carrying the weight of your pain and seeking a way out. Your presence on this page suggests you recognize your inherent worth. Trusting a stranger with your deepest fears and secrets takes courage, and I appreciate you seeing something in me that piqued your curiosity. If you're ready to embark on your healing journey, I'm here for you. Reach out for a free consultation call.
I smile as I share this because I've witnessed tears of relief streaming down faces as individuals work through traumas that once defined their sense of self. What comes next is truly transformative change. They break free from habits and things that no longer reflect their true empowered, resilient, deserving, and worthy selves. You deserve this transformation too!
