My name is Claudia Byrne, and I have been working in the mental health field for 20+ years. In 1991, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Communications from the University of Colorado, and in 2001, I received a Doctorate in Psychology from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
I am currently licensed as a psychologist in Texas, Oregon, and Colorado, and belong to the American Psychological Association, Oregon Psychological Association, and National Register of Health Service Psychologists.
During my time in this profession, I have worked with many individuals struggling with a wide variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), stress management, grief/loss, chronic illness, pain, relationship discord, family conflict, and trauma.
I understand that feeling safe and being able to trust are two key elements you need from me in order to explore, examine, and express your thoughts, feelings, fears, and worries in therapy. I take pride in being non-judgmental, honest, curious, and compassionate. I believe that authenticity and acceptance fosters a sense of safety and trust in our relationship. These values are just as important to me as they are to you.
The therapeutic techniques that I use are evidence-based, and have been recommended by the American Psychological Association and American Psychiatric Association. CBT-I is also recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and The American Academy of Family Physicians.
