Claudette has a Master’s degree in counseling from Denver Seminary and a Bachelor of Arts teaching degree from the University of Northern Colorado. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and holds certifications in Couples Communication and Prepare/Enrich programs.
Claudette’s focus in counseling is to strengthen the family, which she believes is the cornerstone of our society. The marriage relationship is the best place to begin building a strong culture, so Claudette works primarily with couples.
Her approach with couples is to help them understand how unmet emotional needs contribute to conflict. Couples will learn to meet each other’s needs and learn to communicate their emotions in a positive, constructive way. Her goal in counseling is that couples will learn to interact differently and understand their destructive emotional responses.
Claudette enjoys teaching and believes the counseling process involves learning new skills. To help with this process, Claudette offers counseling groups for pre-marital and married couples. Group counseling is less expensive and couples have the opportunity to learn from each other, plus there is comfort in knowing others experience the same frustrations in marriage. Groups last six to eight weeks.
Claudette has been married for 28 years and has five kids. She has taught middle school and high school but now focuses on counseling. In her spare time she enjoys being with her family, sewing, refinishing furniture, and walks on the High Line Canal.
