About Me

Hi! I'm Claire! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Birmingham, Alabama, specializing in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression and substance abuse disorders. My clinical practice and expertise stems from my own personal therapeutic work. About 15 years ago, I decided to take a deep dive into my own darkness, and I have continued to do so over and over again. The more I can tell my truth and look at all my yuckiness, the better I feel. I decided to deal to heal. I'm here to help you do the same.

 

After practicing counseling for 10 years, I strive to look for the inherent wholeness of each client, and create a safe and non-judgmental environment to simply witness your truth. Understanding that growth and healing is more powerful when clients find their own answers, I aim to lead my clients as they engage in the process of discovering truth and healing. You know you the best.

 

If you like knowing credentials this part is for you. I graduated from the University of Montevallo with a Master’s degree in counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have extensive clinical experience, having worked in residential treatment as a primary therapist and Clinical Director. I also am a total knowledge junkie, so I am consistently engaging in trainings, research, and personal therapeutic work. Outside of all the paperwork needed to become a therapist, I like connecting with people. We are made to connect with others.

I also do other things. Like fun things. I have two young children, too many cats, and a dog. I make a killer pie and am overly competitive in Yahtzee. Crime TV shows suck me in and then give me nightmares. I buy Vitamins and forget to take them. My last thought every night is: "Dear Coffee Cup, I cannot wait to see you in the morning." I like to just show up in all of my humanity, so you can too.
