Out The Box Therapy

Being seen as an anomaly and often misunderstood as the middle child, Clara knew she wasn’t alone. Throughout her youth and as an adult, Clara was driven to bridge the gap for others who may feel similar to her. Clara's daily desire to support, help, listen and see people live a full and meaningful life led her to pursue a career as a clinical therapist. Clara furthered her education at Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor's degree in Social Work, and graduated in 2008 from Wayne State University with her Master's degree in Social Work. Clara was on a mission to fill the void for those who may not feel understood, provide a safe place where their story can be heard, and where thinking "Out The Box" is good and okay. In 2021, Clara founded "Out the Box Therapy" to remind people of their value and that you don't have to have all the answers.
