Claire Pieper, MSW, LGSW - Mental Health Practitioner
Claire graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Deciding to take an alternative route to the traditional track of a Psychology major, Claire pursued her master’s in social work at Saint Louis University to immerse herself into a community that provides a comprehensive, hands-on education and practicum program. She sought out the Family Resource Center in Saint Louis, particularly working with at-risk children within the Therapeutic Preschool program. In addition, Claire completed her final practicum within an inpatient psychiatric hospital setting, working with adolescents with a variety of diagnoses.
Claire has experience working through the modalities of individual, family, and group therapy. She believes that fostering a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship is essential to the development and growth of clients. Claire also places a high importance in implementing a nonjudgmental stance to instead approach therapy through individualized treatment and client objectives.
