She/Her/Hers

Clinical Social Worker

claudia.combs-wise@therapytodaycc.com

I am a caregiver by nature and I support individuals to grow emotionally and spiritually, at their own pace. Our authentic self is within each of us, waiting to blossom. My role as a therapist is to promote self-determination by supporting you to look inward for ways to find solutions to perceived barriers to attaining life goals.

I have been practicing in the mental health profession since I graduated with my Masters in Social Work from The University of Michigan, 1977. I am licensed as both a Clinical and Macro Social Worker and am experienced in both the administrative and clinical areas of mental health.
