Claire has worked in private practice for over 16 years, starting as a licensed massage
therapist and then as a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She is now a licensed
clinical mental health counselor associate in NC. Claire founded Flying Crane Practices
to bring modern and specialized modalities to clients suffering from emotional pain due
to relational injuries and traumatic experiences.
Claire primarily specializes in addressing how the emotional pain met during life
transitions, break-ups, loss, trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, or sexual abuse relates
to past relational injuries and traumatic experiences.
Claire has extensive knowledge. She holds a level 2 in Internal Family System (IFS),
and in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP). She is pursuing a certification in Trauma
Informed Stabilization Treatment (TIST).

Her unique vantage point as a long-time body therapist and acupuncturist allows her to
naturally weave mindfulness of our emotions and how we physically hold them.
Claire also specializes in group therapy to support individuals in addressing their sense
of aloneness and disconnection.
Claire finds joy when she relates to nature and believes many of us feel better when we
reconnect to our natural environment and feel a strong sense of community with
humans and animals. She offers possible sessions outdoors with equine therapy. Claire
also practices mindfulness through tai chi and art like Ikebana, a Japanese flower
arrangement. She is currently accepting new clients.
