Licensed Professional Counselor,
National Certified Counselor,
Registered Play Therapist &
Certified Professional School Counselor
My name is Claudia Ocampo. Since 1999, I have worked with children and families through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life. I have an educational background as a paraprofessional, teacher, crisis manager and school counselor in all educational levels (elementary - high school). This experience and perspective helps me better serve children, teens, young adults and parents navigate the educational system.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from California State University in 2003 and my Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Tarleton State University in 2008. After many years in the classroom, I became a School Counselor in 2010. I completed the requirements to become a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist in 2017. I also hold the National Certified Counselor recognition by the National Board of Certified Counselors.
As a Registered Play Therapist, I have specialized training that creates a style of counseling different from the typical "talk therapy." In this restorative process, I utilize many modalities like Play Therapy, Sandtray, Theraplay® principles and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to better help my clients reach the best version of themselves. Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of your goals. Get in touch today to see what I can do for you and your family.
My Therapeutic Approach
Helping You Move Towards
Balance and Well-Being!
My therapeutic approach is very interactive and interpersonal. I believe pain and trauma births in the context of relationships; therefore, true healing also needs to initiate in the context of relationships with others. I have experience working with trauma, attachment, grief, depression, anxiety, abuse, behavior disorders, social skills, self esteem, divorce and parent-child interaction.
I love working with children ages 2+, teenagers, young adults and parents. Motivating and helping children and families reach their maximum potential is my life's passion. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch today. Si su hijo, hija, familia ó usted necesita ayuda de una terapeuta que habla español, por favor comuníquese conmigo.
