Claire Capron is the Director of the Behavioral Health program and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She sees children, adults, and families. She moved to Rockbridge County in 2018 with her husband who has ties to the Washington and Lee University community and is enjoying being settled after years of moving through her work with military families. Claire earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Rutgers University and a Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Albany. She has extensive experience in both in-patient and out-patient facilities and her most recent work was with military personnel and families near Washington, D.C. She specializes in the treatment of trauma, depression, and anxiety using innovative approaches such as Mindfulness, and EMDR together with traditional therapies. Claire is trained in ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy), which helps to alleviate flashbacks and nightmares by working with patients to keep the memory but to lose the images of trauma that haunt many people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. ART also helps people with severe anxiety by helping them imagine more positive outcomes. In her free time, she enjoys horseback riding and painting on various mediums.
