Psychotherapist 

Are you or someone you love interested in psychotherapy? You are at the right place! It’s vital to choose the right kind of therapist for yourself to set you up on a successful path to feel better.

Hello. My name is Claudia Ribas, and I am Brazilian who has been living in the United States for the past 30 years. Having faced chronic stressors at home, at work, in relationships, and in the activities of daily life, I understand that immigration and finding yourself in an unknown place can bring on emotional and social challenges that can be overwhelming. It can also cost you your self-esteem, peace of mind, and most importantly, your clarity of purpose.

My professional and personal knowledge of multicultural identity makes me especially sensitive to issues of cultural selfhood and adjustment and allows me to resonate with your frustration, pain, and ambivalence as we aim to create new foundations for a meaningful life in the society you have chosen. I work with adults and young adults as well as LGBT as they address relationships and general life struggles including identity, parenting, and adjustment.

But why chose me? It’s quite simple!
I offer my clients a supportive form of engagement that fosters growth and insight. Together we’ll create a space where you can feel safe, valued, and understood, as we work toward healing, strength, and acceptance. And as you do the work, guided by me as your psychotherapist, you will begin to show up more and more as your true self, with courage and confidence, and transform the way you approach your personal and professional life. What’s more, for me the treatment (journey) is the relationship between therapist and client!
