Hello! I am here to hold space for you, walk alongside you, and provide a non-judgmental environment as you navigate through life’s challenges.
My name is Claudia Sarra, I am a Registered Psychotherapist and Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist. I approach my work from a Person-Centered, Trauma-Informed lens. My goal is to provide a compassionate, warm, safe, and supportive space for all my clients. I focus on the therapeutic alliance as an essential component in healing and aim to create a space where clients can feel less alone in their pain. Substantial research suggests the therapeutic relationship plays a significant role in healing and progress. Therefore, I aim to build and establish safety and trust from the moment we meet.
I have experience working with and supporting individuals who have experienced trauma and struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, loss, self-esteem, and life transitions. I believe it is important to explore how past events shape current experiences. I utilize an integrative approach to treatment tailored to your individual needs and concerns. These approaches include Internal Family Systems, EMDR, Mindfulness, Narrative and Compassion Focused Therapy. I continue to increase my knowledge and expand my practice through ongoing education and professional development.
My goal is to help you heal from the past and restore a sense of calm and clarity within yourself. Together we can build on your strengths and tailor treatment to your individual needs. I look forward to working with you through your healing journey.
