Claudine Petit-Frere


Hello, I am Claudine Petit-Frere, a registered Social Work intern in the State of Florida who provides services in English and Creole. I have over 10 years of experience in the community working as a volunteer at Hands Together for Haitians Inc. formerly known as Hands Together of the Palm Beaches in Lake Worth, Florida. I concentrate on two main approaches, such as person-centered, which requires clients to actively take control during each session, while the therapist acts as a guide and a source of support for clients. Cognitive therapy focuses on clients identifying their negative thoughts and feelings and replacing them with positive and more accurate ones. I also employ play therapy techniques when working with children from the age of 5-10 years old. Play therapy helps children explore, communicate, and safely experience the problem they are working through. My goal is to create a comfortable environment for my clients to express their thoughts openly..
