Claudia Orfao-Martin


43 years of experience

I am an clinician who is licensed in the state of Massachusetts. My license reflects my achievement as a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW), and I hold a Ph.D. in Social Work. I have more than 43 years of experience working with clients who are struggling with all levels of mental health issues including: stress and anxiety, grief and loss, behavioral challenges, parenting issues, depression and more. My current client list includes individuals from the ages of four to eighty-two. I believe in treating everyone with the greatest respect, sensitivity and compassion. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and special needs, and you will be an active partner in your treatment planning.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

As a client committed to change, you can expect to begin to experience relief almost as soon as our sessions begin. Knowing that whatever you share is guarded with the utmost anonymity, you will have the ability to share information that you may have been uncomfortable sharing with anyone else previously. This freedom results in the relief that you have been seeking. Additionally, you will learn coping skills which will allow you to experience a greater sense of peace and control. These skills are essential to maintaining the confidence and improvements that you are committed to achieving.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Because I have had the honor of working with clients for many years, I have several clinical approaches which are available. Prior to engaging in treatment, I will discuss with you the approaches which I believe will best meet your needs. The approaches that I use most frequently are: Attachment-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My greatest strengths are generated by the work that I am doing with clients. As the client, you are able to guide me to make available the interventions that will most benefit you and the process of healing. I am absolutely convinced that anyone and everyone can find the peace that you deserve. I am looking forward to our working together soon.
