Professional statement

Claire Byers is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in MA who works with children and adults.

Her approach draws from her training in the Somatic practice of Focusing combined with Expressive Arts Therapy and viewing life from the lens of an Artist. By inviting and embodying curiosity, playfulness and gentle grace, she supports her clients in accessing a broader, more loving view of themselves combined with a deeper intimacy with their experiences.

Many of her clients are at a significant transition in their lives. Claire has observed the value of helping them slow down, be still, and attend to the hidden or previously obscured layers of themselves that carry the wisdom for next steps.

Passionate about helping people discover the power that can be found in their most vulnerable and hidden parts, Claire invests the time and gentleness required to invite aspects of yourself that are shy and need to move at their own pace. She has experienced great awe and delight in the paradox of healing, that we transform and liberate ourselves by accepting and being exactly who we are.

As a bisexual femme herself, Claire cares deeply about providing a supportive, validating space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community to feel seen and heard.

Additionally, she is happy to offer her expertise in Astrology as a lens or tool for growth for those who are interested.

Claire is offering only virtual sessions at this time.
