In May 2010, she was awarded the status of Certified Group Psychotherapist from the American Group Psychotherapy Association, formalizing her as a national expert in group psychotherapy.

In 2005, Claudia became a Certified Holistic Health Counselor. Her goal is to bring healing, therapy and meditation together through her holistic service offerings.

Claudia is experienced at working with people who are experiencing identity transitions related to culture, sexuality and coming of age.

Her treatment methods include psychodynamic, interpersonal, mindfulness (meditation) and neuroscientific approaches. Her work with couples has centered on cross-cultural, interracial and gay partnerships and she specializes in issues related to infidelity.

In 2010, Claudia developed the Dynamic Meditation workshop series, which integrates mindfulness, neuroscientific theory and meditation into a curriculum that teaches a practical coping skill designed to be used in both clinical and nonclinical settings. Topics include love and relationships, money and abundance, body and wellbeing and family and intimacy workshops. Dynamic Meditation has proven to be a transformative tool in the therapeutic setting for both clinicians, psychotherapy clients and the general public.
