Claribel Severson, PhD, NCC, LPCC


ABOUT ME |
I have spent much of my adult life mentoring others in my private life and changed careers as a result. I am both an INFJ and HSP and integrate these into my practice. I love learning and am interested in different cultures and cuisines. My family and friends are extremely important and spending time with them is part of maintaining my own mental health. I support various charities that involve the protection of children and animals and am passionate about spaying and neutering pets to prevent abuse and neglect.
