Divergent Worlds Psychotherapy Associates

Pre-Licensed Associates

Psychological Associates (Ph.D. and Psy.D) and AMFT/APC/ASW Associates are mental health professionals who are in the process of completing their licensing processes and are approved to provide psychotherapy under the supervision of a licensed therapist. While every individual I supervise has their own approaches and style, at Divergent Worlds we all share values of inclusion and acceptance of a range of identities and experiences. As part of our practice, they provide sliding scale fees, and you can ask them directly to determine what your fee would be. Click on the links below for more information about each person, and reach out to them if you would like to ask a question or set up an appointment.

Licensed Associates

Licensed associates are licensed clinicians who offer psychotherapy as part of our Divergent Worlds community practice. They may have joined us as pre-licensed associates and remained in our practice after becoming licensed, or they may have joined as licensed because they wanted to join others with shared values and established private practice routines.  As part of Divergent Worlds, we strive to create an environment where clinicians receive support in building and sustaining their private practice environments, and clients are supported in receiving skilled, inclusive, informed care.

We don't currently have any licensed associates at this time!

By holding space to explore messages from people's bodies, minds, spirits, and each person's innate heart wisdom, Claudette aims to support, with respect, each person's individual healing journey.
