About

Hello & welcome; my name is Claire.

Like many, my life has not been linear. I grew up in France, then moved to the US to finished an MBA in Illinois. I worked in tech in Manhattan and later in design; was married for 10 years, got divorced.

I spent many of my early adulthood with the existential dread of not knowing what to do with my life despite having a successful career – “surely there must be something more meaningful…“.

On the path to discovering what that was, I studied contemplative voice work, meditation, dance, dreams, psychedelics, trauma, and death; I found that again and again, I was drawn to the spectacular transformations brought about by threshold spaces. Combined with a passion for understanding the human mind, motives, and strategies, I am currently enrolled in the Mindfulness-based Transpersonal Counseling master’s program at Naropa.

A certified End-of-Life Doula and a ceremonialist at heart, I have several years of experience leading circles and rituals.
I currently offer coaching and healing services in Boulder, CO.

One of the biggest gifts of these past few years has been learning to listen to the messages of the body and psyche & attuning to the cycles and forces of Nature. By doing so, I discovered a deeper sense of alignment with Self that brought greater wisdom and aliveness.

I continue to delight in the richness of life, its subtle nuances and unexpected turns; one of them is that I am expecting a little girl for January 2018, and preparing for the incredible journey that is motherhood.

 

“I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.”

― Hermann Hesse
