Claire Stuebe began a lifetime of serving others when she joined the Peace Corps as a recent Duke University graduate. Her time in Ecuador left her with a love of Spanish, an appreciation for the culture of others, and a willingness to go the extra mile (or more) to help. Over the course of her career as a counselor, she has done just that, working with families, children, and adults as they navigate complex trauma, domestic violence, or mental health concerns. Addressing workplace stressors, navigating the pressures of college or thriving during life transitions are all areas she supports. She has worked in career counseling in the college setting, and as a program evaluator establishing quality service delivery. She has worked for a decade in the EAP field, serving on the front lines as she is often the first person to offer support and assess the degree of impairment a client may be experiencing.
In her role as therapist, group and workshop facilitator at Sequence, she brings all of this experience and more. Her focus on mindfulness, holistic living, and nurturing the mind-body connection has brought her to become a qualified trainer in the MB-EAT program, or Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training. Workshops are offered several times a year. As a breast cancer survivor, she found yoga and meditation to be essential to her own healing and wellness, and shares these values of wellness, present living, and self-care with her clients. Wellness and quality of life are included in the focus of her treatment of depression, anxiety, and other life struggles her online clients may be facing.
Encompassing compassion and practicality, Claire uses cognitive behavioral (CBT), mindfulness, and short-term solution-focused therapy often in her direct practice. She is EMDR trained, but prefers to use EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique a cognitive-somatic tapping technique, shown to help individuals integrate and heal from past traumatic events, life experience, difficult memories, present food cravings, stress, anxiety, and phobias. She also uses cognitive behavioral to help clients process certain issues and find solutions. Her blending of cognitive and mind-body practice creates a unique healing experience for her clients.
EFT is a brief intervention combining elements of exposure, cognitive therapy, and somatic stimulation of acupressure points on the face and body. Learn more about EFT from this NIH article here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6381429/ .
