Claudia Mercier, MA, is passionate about addressing children’s behavioral challenges, particularly trauma-related behaviors, by intentionally simplifying all facets of family life. Her specialized training as a licensed clinical social worker is the treatment of depression. Claudia and her husband have a large foster adopted family with seven children ranging from 2-24 years old. They have fostered children for over 15 years while raising 5 children born into their family at the same time. Approximately 3 years ago, Claudia launched The Foster Village, a ministry in the East Bay that encourages people to foster and then wraps around and supports those families. The group started off with two families and now has 160+ involved in the ministry! Claudia also facilitates the monthly Support Group in Walnut Creek for foster, adoptive and kinship parents.
