Graduate of the Immigration Evaluation Institute

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor with 15+ years of experience working with diverse clients in DC, MD, VA, and MI. I am passionate about using my clinical assessment skills and understanding of trauma to help clients and families with immigration cases. I strive to be warm, affirming, client-centered, and culturally sensitive, and I am personally rooted in a desire for social justice. I will work with you and your lawyer to produce a thorough, timely, and comprehensive psychosocial evaluation.

When I am not with my clients or my family, I am a Girl Scouts leader and a volunteer in the gun violence prevention movement. I recently relocated back to my hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan; I have a telehealth practice serving MI, DC, VA, and MD. Most people value the time saved on travel to and from appointments and appreciate the flexibility to meet where it is convenient for them.

I look forward to hearing your story.


I conduct Immigration Evaluations for: VAWA, Hardship Waiver, U Visa, T Visa, and Asylum cases. I work closely with individuals, families, and their attorneys that are seeking legal haven in the USA for a better, safer, and brighter future. I'm currently in private practice based in Brooklyn, NY. I focus on anxiety and depression especially as it relates to the challenges of immigration and racial identity conflicts.


I am a bilingual clinical social worker working with all levels of trauma for over 27 years. My passion is in helping those who have suffered overcome their traumas and feel alive again. As one of my patients described it to me: "Claudia, for the first time, I feel the sun." How wonderful it is to be part of that journey. As an immigrant and child of an immigrant from Colombia, I want to help another immigrant have the opportunity to live without fear.
