Life is a never-ending healing and growth journey. My name is Claudette Barragan and my purpose is to help adults establish a sense of meaning, purpose, and safety in their lives through the use of spirituality, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, positive psychology, and trauma-informed interventions. It is only by healing our emotional wounds and trauma that we start living a fulfilling life and reach our full potential. That is when we are truly accepting of ourselves and become our own home, nurturer, protector, and refuge.

How are you going to live this one precious life? I work best with clients who value deep self-exploration, and who want to cultivate intimacy with themselves, with others, and with life. Rather than solving problems from your thinking mind, I will help you access your embodied (i.e., thinking, feeling, sensing, spiritual) intelligence so that you can make conscious choices that express your fullest, authentic self. I believe our most challenging areas of darkness are potential portals for contacting what is most real within our self. I specialize in depression, anxiety, relational problems, existential and spiritual issues.

In response to covid-19, I am now accepting new clients either via video or phone session. Insurance will still cover these types of visits! I am committed to helping you build confidence and hope through developing credible plans and an understanding of your strengths and struggles. For many people, seeking counseling can be uncomfortable because it requires looking deeply at one's life, or because of uncertainties about counseling's effectiveness. In addition to relying on evidence informed practices, we are consumer centered and will partner with you to help find solutions!

When these experiences haven't been resolved, they can manifest in a range of ways--as symptoms (anxiety, depression, anger, stress); or as compulsive behaviors (substance abuse, self-injury, sexuality that feels out of control, disordered eating, internet use).

Amy helps you to find the insight you need so your story can make sense again. We can all become unsure of how we got to where we are, where we are headed, and even what would make things better. We become emotionally, relationally, and even physically stuck, reacting in ways that are ineffective at best, and often just plain counterproductive. Amy brings to therapy a number of different approaches to assist you in finding personal insight, motivation, and connection. She supports clients in the act of turning to their internal experience as a guide to forming connections, making decisions, moving through difficult experiences.

We are becoming more aware how psychological pain increases when we haven't developed a strong sense of self. Such distress, presenting in forms such as depression and anxiety, can keep us from profound and beautiful connection. Healthy relationships we have with ourselves and others are essential for our emotional well-being. So first, live a life that reflects who you are, even if others don't quite understand. Trying to conform to what others want has never been possible. In the Power of Awareness, Neville wrote, "The awareness of 'being' remains regardless of the degree of forgetfulness of who, where and what I am."

I love working with individuals who are asking, "What do i want to create in my life? What do I want to move away from?". Life transitions in work, relationships, health, and faith, come to everyone, with accompanying fear, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and uncertainty. I work with a combination of approaches to help people reduce stress and return to a sense of regulation and mastery in their lives. My specialty is Somatic Experiencing as i have found that talk alone is not enough, the body needs to be included in growth and healing.

It's to help you understand why you feel anxious or depressed yet think shouldn’t be feeling that way. (I assure you there are reasons for why you feel the way you do.)

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
