More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 20
State: CA

Thank you for being here and for visiting my profile. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of California. I earned my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of Southern California where I also completed my undergraduate studies in social sciences and Spanish language. I have 20 years of experience in hospitals/healthcare and mental health settings.

I'm particularly knowledgeable about assisting those who struggle with challenging health conditions and illness, grief and loss, bereavement, trauma, abuse, depression and anxiety. One special interest of mine is supporting those who have lost loved ones to suicide. I enjoy working with clients from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

I incorporate a holistic, integrative approach meaning that I draw from multiple modalities including cognitive behavioral, trauma-informed and strengths-based. I also incorporate mindfulness and motivational interviewing techniques into my practice. From my viewpoint as a clinician, human functioning and behavior stem from many life experiences and aspects of our lives: psychological, cognitive, biological/physical/medical, genetic, developmental, familial, social, educational/employment/career, spiritual, cultural and societal.

It's important that we search for optimal ways together to maximize individual adaptive coping skills, to broaden insight, and to make positive, practical steps towards change.

In addition to my employment, I've volunteered for several community organizations and non-profits that support health, mental health and/or education. One of my favorite volunteer positions has been serving as a Crisis Counselor for Crisis Text Line. I also have great appreciation for nature and the arts.

My colleagues describe me as compassionate, empathetic and invested in my clients' well-being. I'm dedicated to making the most of any therapeutic experience.

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.

I truly love that I have found Claudia. She really dives in to truly learn what you are need help and guidance with. She gives me many different options with dealing with conflicts. My favorite part of working with her is that she completely understands my extremely busy life. ♥️

I have nothing but great things to say about Claudia. As if our sessions weren’t helpful enough, I really appreciate her checking in on me during the week to make sure I’m doing okay.

I've worked with Claudia for almost a year, and she is wonderfully empathetic, respectful, and thoughtful in her approach towards counseling. During an extremely difficult part of my life, being able to talk with Claudia every day contributed enormously to my growth as a person and to my ability to cope with the challenges I was facing.
