Are you overwhelmed by thoughts, feelings and behaviors interfering with your life? Have you tried counselling modalities that did not bring significant improvements to your life?
If you answered yes, then I am the therapist that can effectively guide you to conquer that change.
WHO IS THIS THERAPY FOR?
I work with people who are tired of traditional counselling modalities that didn’t bring lasting results to their mental health challenges. I can effectively work with you in areas such as: stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD, addictions, trauma, sexual abuse, emotional disturbance, life transitions, grief, coping skills, or sleeping difficulties. My clients all want the same result. They want to experience peace and emotional freedom.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
*I offer a very unique therapeutic approach to healing, which includes a combination of over 15 years of experience as a therapist, plus a variety of therapeutic modalities (Yoga, Trauma Focused, Somatic, Mindfulness-Based (MBCT), Neuro-Linguistic, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), among others) including Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT). You can learn more about my approach and professional background here.
Each session will be tailored to your specific needs and can last anywhere from 60 to 120 minutes, and includes a follow up call. You can expect to experience results from the first session; you will feel calm and refreshed…lighter.
For the session I suggest you wear comfortable clothing, and ideally avoid caffeine three hours previous to the session.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Each of my clients is unique, but they all want the same results: peace and emotional freedom. Here are some of the healing journeys that I have had the privilege of guiding my clients through:
Client suffering from PTSD for 5 years, no longer thinks about traumatic event. A client suffering from PTSD for 5 years (a disturbing image that was there every time she closed her eyes), trying different styles of counselling, taking meds, at the end of the first session she reported not seeing that image any more… and said “I feel clear, I feel free, I feel so light”At the 10 day follow up phone call she reported that has not seen that image anymore and had not even thought about the traumatic event linked to that disturbing image.
Emotionally disturbed client feels a significant internal shift. A client emotionally disturbed by a traumatic childhood with parents that were addicted, and as an adult a difficult relationship not only with her mother but also closed to receive and give care to others “I no longer wish I could be like that (inner harmony, open to others), because I already am that”. At the 10 day follow up phone call “I know that there has been a shift from within…from inside”
Client with 15-year history of severe anxiety feels quiet and relaxed at end of session. A client with a 15-year history of severe anxiety, at the end of the session “Wow! I have never been in a session like this! It feels like I was in some sort of dream… I feel so quiet, so relaxed… I don’t even remember if I ever felt this well before”. At the 10 days follow up phone call; “I no longer feel that heaviness in my chest, I no longer feel troubled by worry thoughts.”
Client suffering from intense shoulder pain leaves session pain-free. Client suffering from intense pain in her shoulders which was related to emotional disturbance, stress, burn. At the end of the session the severe pain on her shoulders was completely gone. At the end of the session client was laughing and screaming “Claudia! Claudia! Claudia! My shoulders! I can move my shoulders! I don’t feel pain anymore.”Also showing a significant improvement on her mood. Client also reported a significant insight which impacted positively, which was triggered by the therapist’s questions.

"After the first session I was able to reach a level of calmness and worry-free mind that I have not experienced before. I became less emotional, which was a huge improvement in such a short period of time. I used to cry on a regular basis and that just stopped." – L. Eltit
