Claudia Apfelbaum, MSS, LCSW


Welcome! So glad to meet you.

My name is Claudia Apfelbaum, and I'm a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with a specialty in marriage and family therapy. I live and work in NW Philadelphia, PA, and I have over 30 years of experience as a social worker, teacher, and psychotherapist.

I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to heal from personal and interpersonal trauma, repair relationships, and discover their full potential. My goal is to help you find and express your personal truths, recover your strengths, and navigate and resolve interpersonal conflicts. I facilitate a process of “working through” that allows personal pain and interpersonal conflict to become resolved. As a therapist, I listen for the essence and assist with growth and healing.

I earned my Master’s degree in Social Work from Bryn Mawr College Graduate School for Social Work and Social Research, and received a post master’s certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy from The Council for Relationships. I also have a certificate in Gestalt Therapy from the Cape Cod Gestalt Institute.
