Throughout my career I’ve demonstrated an ability to provide sincere emotional support, empathy, insight, and practical steps, in reaching the clients' goals. I not only apply my clinical training, but also my life experiences, in coping with and overcoming many of the same challenges which I have faced myself.

I have also treated Major Mental Disorders, relationship issues, and Co-existing Disorders.

I look forward to hearing from you to see how I may help.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Claudia listens well and helps me process some difficult stuff in my life. She is compassionate and non-judgmental. I'd recommend her to others.

So far, SO GOOD. I’ve already gotten tools that I can use on a day to day basis with an understanding of what is chemically/physic going on with me. She has brought me so much clarity.

She is the best therapist I have ever had, she’s helped me more than I can even begin to explain- I feel so lucky to have found her

Claudia has been an inspiration and light in my life. I've been through many different therapists before, but I've felt like their responses to my statements have been shallow. Claudia, on the other hand, doesn't ever seem to zone out during conversations, but listens and establishes a connection before suggesting any advice, which makes me feel heard and understood. Her influence on my life has been tremendous. I would highly recommend Claudia as a therapist.

I have only chatted with Claudia a few times so far. I really appreciated her listening and asking thoughtful questions. She has given me some great tools and advice so far! I wish I could meet her in person! She is wonderful.

Claudia is very thoughtful and a great listener. We’ve only just begun therapy but I feel like I’ve already benefited tremendously.

Claudia Stein was very helpful in my time of need. She even messaged in between sessions when it was urgent.

D.A.·Jan 27, 2021


Claudia has been such a wonderful support for me through a very difficult time. She has offered articles, worksheets, videos and messaged with me along with our face to face meetings. I have loved and appreciated it all so much, I would not have been able to move forward into a new life without her guidance and support. Thank you sooo very much, I would recommend Claudia and BetterHelp 100%:)!

Beyond, incredibly helpful! I am so thankful!

K.A.·Nov 28, 2020


Claudia Stein is the first therapist that I have felt a true connection with, and I am on my third therapist! She truly listens to you and doesn't try to speculate without gathering facts. She has stayed that can be tailored to any individual and I would highly recommend her.

M.O.·Nov 06, 2020


Claudia is a talented and skilled therapist. She's an excellent listener, has keen observation skills, and provides insightful and validating feedback. Claudia is helping me deal with things I am finally ready to face. I went to therapy for three years over 15 years ago, and it was helpful, but with a new life stage, there are new challenges, and I see that I've internalized some of the old stuff. It's time to let it go, and Claudia is helping me walk with this awareness.

C.L.·Sep 25, 2020


I am so happy to have her. She's genuinely amazing and taught me a lot of things that are very helpful for me to manage my anger, understand my behavior why I act this way related to my past childhood trauma. Very supportive and listened to all my concerns. I feel safe and comfortable with her during sessions and chat messages. Highly recommended!
