Therapists

Claudia Issa

15 years experience

My decision to become a therapist more than 15 years ago was motivated by my past. After feeling lost in my teenage years, I took some time to clear my head and began a journey which led to deciding to help others.

I take a psychodynamic approach, combining psychoanalytic focal psychotherapy, positive psychology, and neuropsychology. I'll accompany you on a journey to understand yourself better, improve the way you work, and feel better about yourself—always at your own pace. I value authenticity, acting on empathy, appreciation for others, and embracing diversity.
