Claire Lynne Siwula, MA, LMFT

Crisis can be an opportunity for change.  I can assist you with coping strategies, communication tools, and support if you are stuck.

Utilizing a collaborative, strength-based approach, I am respectful and empathetic.  My evidence-based specialties for depression and anxiety include motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Additionally, I am trained in and use EMDR as a treatment for trauma.

Other professional accomplishments include: Conducted substance abuse counseling evidence-based techniques with veterans at an inpatient program. Co-authored two articles that were presented at the Association for the Advancement of Behavior Therapy in Boston in 1994.

Extensive experience with dual diagnosis clients, including at-risk youth and their families and adult offenders, and disabled and developmentally delayed clients.  LGBTQ+ affirming.
