Learn How We Can Help You

From the outside, it seems like
everything is great.

But on the inside… you may be riddled with constant worry, anger, guilt, or resentment.

Possibly feeling disconnected… like there is NOTHING you can do that’s enough.

It can feel like you’re always dropping the ball somewhere!

Finding a balance is difficult.

Being a dependable friend everyone can count on – regardless of the challenges you’re facing.

Keeping up with the demands of your career – but things are falling apart at home.

Trying to be the parent your child needs – but sometimes, you don’t even know what that looks like.

Hi, I’m Claire
Clinical Director & Founder

It takes courage to find hope – to look in the mirror and say, “I’m not going to live like this anymore.”

At Claibourne Counseling, YOU are the expert of YOU. Together, we will work to rediscover your strengths, move through past hurts, and start redefining what happiness looks like for you.

Your feelings and experiences are real, valid, and unique. Therapy can help you identify, understand, and accept these feelings while learning to communicate them in a way you will not only be heard but understood.

My number one goal for Claibourne Counseling is to help others tap into the natural abilities to heal themselves and to provide support throughout the tough yet rewarding journey.

It’s time to put your mind at ease so that you can start not only listening, but trusting your heart.

I’m glad you’re here!

Happy Clients

“I came to Claibourne with little trust in my heart after seeing too many therapists who were unable to meet my needs. However, by the first session, I could tell that they were different. Claire is overflowing with genuine empathy and warmth that is essential for recovery. No matter what you’re going through, they will meet you with both the compassion and professional expertise you need and deserve to make it to the other side.”

“Claibourne counseling is extremely professional! If they cannot provide a service they make recommendations for someone who can. They definitely coordinate care and make you feel extremely important! I would highly recommend!”

“Before I found Claibourne, I saw three different therapists. We all know how exhausting and frustrating it can be looking for the right fit. I felt a significant improvement since I started seeing Claire with the DBT and EMDR sessions… she is very attentive, supportive, and has helped me tremendously understand a lot of things I don’t think I’d understand if I did this alone.”

“When looking for a therapist you’ve got to find the right person for you… Danielle has really helped me out with my anxiety. Anyone looking for a great therapist that can truly help needs to give Claibourne Counseling a call. It is a more individualized approach than I have found anywhere.”

Name Here

“When I was looking for a counselor, my goals were to find someone I could be very open and honest with, be comfortable with telling my deepest fears and secrets to, and more importantly to find someone that could help me navigate through all of it. I found everything and more than I was looking for. I always leave the office feeling better than when I came in and ready to tackle all the challenges that life has to offer.”
