People often tell me that I inspire peace and calm. Since I was a child, I had a sense of integrity and wholeness. I felt that I was guided by an inner voice or internal compass. 

But it wasn't easy...I had to learn to shut down the external noise and distractions around me so I could hear my inner being. This is only possible when we turn inwards. It's in the silence where the music is created.

Some people may say I'm one of those "lucky" people who was born like that-— disease free, in a healthy family upbringing. The truth is that every body has something they need to overcome and heal, all families have conflict and wounds, and life doesn't protect you from suffering. This is the school of life and we are here to learn something. 

My name is Claudia Carballal. I work as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I obtained a Master of Science in Clinical Counseling Psychology from SMU Simmons School of Education and Human Development. 


A Licensed Professional Counselor has to be approved by their State Board of Professional Counselors after fulfilling specific requirements. Most professional counselors have to complete a three-year master-level degree, including a one-year in-school internship before graduation, and a post-graduate two-year supervised internship at a workplace (LPC-Associate level). My post-graduate supervised internship required 3,000 total hours of work with a minimum of 1500 direct client contact hours in counseling sessions. After two years of supervised internship, a counselor can request a license upgrade (LPC) and she is then considered a "fully licensed" therapist. 

I completed my post-graduate internship clinical experience with a multicultural non-profit organization that serves survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and human rights violations. Most of my clients were immigrants from different countries who escaped war, natural disasters, poverty, political persecution, or crime. I had been working with this population for three decades in legal cases and mental health issues, but my work as a counselor opened my eyes to their deep struggle and suffering more than ever before. Being a counselor has been one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences of my career.


Prior to being a counselor, around 2015 I started providing yoga classes, meditation workshops, and life coaching services. In my work as a counselor and coach, I combine approaches of Western psychology and Eastern practices. I'm a proponent of yoga psychology and mindfulness-based therapies as tools for emotional healing, freedom from mental pain and suffering, and spiritual growth.

My passion for health inspired me to study Yoga and Meditation practices in India where I obtained formal training and certifications in Yoga and Ayurveda. I continue to immerse myself in Eastern practices by traveling to India every year and learning more about the vast world of yogic sciences and healing modalities

People have the answers to their questions within, I just create a space for them to trust their intuition and reach for those answers with clarity and wisdom.

I offer individual counseling, group counseling, couple counseling, relationship guidance, family and adolescent therapy, trauma-informed therapy, and grief and loss counseling. I also offer coaching sessions based on Cognitive Behavioral modalities and yogic techniques from Eastern philosophy that can help you understand your life purpose and realize your potential.

I host meditation and awareness workshops. Meditation is not merely an exercise for wellness or to calm your mind. Meditation is an ancient and effective tool for human evolution and sets the path for a lifestyle of transformation. The practice of self-awareness that meditation promotes is to be incorporated in every moment of your life, not only occasionally during a "meditation class." Meditation is a means to connecting with Cosmic Consciousness — the Creator. In finding ourselves in the Universal Consciousness, we find this Consciousness within us, everywhere around us, and in everyone we meet. We are made of pure consciousness. Divisions, social class, race, gender, age, are all social constructs irrelevant to who we really are.

I hope I can inspire you to connect with your force within, learn from your experiences, and achieve the growth, peace, joy and happiness that you want. 


In my youth, I was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi to study Law. Growing up in Mexico, I saw poverty and discrimination around me. I was privileged to have a home and a stable and loving family and it puzzled me to see the indifference in my community towards social issues. I listened to my inner voice and felt compelled to defend the human and civil rights of those less privileged and more vulnerable. I wanted to be the voice that they didn't have. For 13 years, I dedicated my life to do that. During my work as an international law attorney, I had to interview people for their cases, and their life stories moved me. These were the stories of immigrants and refugees escaping war and poverty in their countries and trying to start a new life in the US. Their stories moved me, and I felt compelled to help in the emotional-psychological field. I listened to my inner voice again and decided to study mental health counseling. This time, I did not want to be the voice of people, I want to inspire them to find the voice that they have within.


Regardless of our background, everyone has a life story. The most important thing in our life is to write our story from a place of meaning and not from a place of victimization.
