About Claudia McGrath Counseling

Claudia McGrath with Mikey & Charlie at the zoo

The things I have always been most passionate about include my counseling practice, family, children and now grandchildren. These things have been a constant and grounding influence in my life. I enjoy walking outdoors, gardening, cross country skiing and being at the lake. I am passionate about learning and practicing new skills. I try to practice in my personal life the things that will give me the strength and energy to be useful to my clients and others. I do this imperfectly and with enthusiasm.
