My Approach

My approach is client centered and strengths based. I am here to collaborate with you individually or with you and your partner to help reach your goals in a way that feels good for everyone. When working with couples, I aim to help deepen your intimacy and satisfaction by providing tools and techniques to improve communication and to build a foundation of trust. Additionally, I will give home assignments that continue the work we do in therapy throughout the week. I work through a trauma-informed, Queer, and Feminist lens, centering the fact that our environments, society, culture, and experiences have deeply affected the way we show up in our lives.

My Modalities

I pull from a variety of modalities for each client, but some of my favorites are:

  • Attachment based therapy - Rooted in the belief that your early attachments to family deeply affect your current attachments, especially your romantic relationships

  • Relational therapy - This approach believes that one’s emotional well-being is built on mutually satisfying relationships. It centers social, cultural, and familial relationships.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) - What we think, feel, and believe are all closely connected, and CBT aims to help unwind the persistent negative thought patterns affecting our lives.

Client Reviews on Yelp

"Highly recommend Claire for all your therapy needs. She brings a warm, nonjudgmental energy to her practice. Her approach is super supportive and she asks questions that help you probe into the deeper layers of what's going on with you. She is also funny and relatable, which lord knows some therapists seem to be from a different planet!

10/10 would book, you will not be disappointed!"
