Clara Hoodes, CSW

Clara Hoodes is a Clinical Psychology Ph.D. student in the College of Social Sciences at Saybrook University.

My approach to therapy is integrated and client centered. Throughout the therapeutic process I look to support the client’s needs and their capacity for healing. I consider our capacity for healing to be at center of the therapeutic process and value the client’s perspectives and experiences in the therapeutic relationship.
As client’s move through phases of development in their lives I look to provide the client with support to best help nurture their achievement of therapeutic goals.

It’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness. | Chinese Proverb
