Yakima Medical-Dental Clinic
Yakima, WA 98901
Growing up in the Yakima Valley, Claudia set out to normalize behavioral health treatment for her family, and her community. She is excited when patients begin the realization that mental health care is health care, and she is passionate about helping her patients realize that it’s ok to take care of yourself. She lives to see the day when it is a societal norm to simply take care of one’s mental and emotional health.
