Hello! I’m Claire. I live in Port Townsend, WA, the ancestral home of the Coast Salish people, including the S’Klallam and the Chimacum. With a background in theatre, drama, and literature, I work with children, teens, and adults to uncover creative potential in our own healing, strengthen bonds in relationships both human and extra-human, and discover the stories that help us lead connected and meaningful lives.
I write about the relationship between therapy, philosophy, and the arts at www.clairemariachambers.com. Please check it out!
My services focus on the wholeness of each unique person and your innate potential for meaningful, creative healing. My approach is existential and phenomenological, which means that I attend to your complex relationships to your world, to the others in your life, and to your embodied experience. I believe that drama, literature, and the arts open access to inner experience and create greater awareness. My own stance is that of constant learning, openness, and cultural humility. I strive to practice in ways that are anti-racist, decolonizing, and respectful of persons as dynamic intersections of identities, experiences, needs, and desires.
