Obituary Condolences

FREDERICK, Dr. Claire (Cobb) 83, passed away unexpectedly on October 6, 2015. A proud native of New Orleans, she subsequently practiced in California, Massachusetts, and Maine as a psychiatrist who specialized in psychotherapy and medical hypnosis. An inspiring teacher and author as well, she was internationally known for her seminal contributions to the field of clinical hypnosis through her books, articles, and myriad, award-winning professional contributions to the professional societies of which she was a revered member. Previously on the faculties of Tufts University Medical School, and Harvard Medical School, she was most recently Consulting Faculty at Saybrook University in San Francisco. A past editor of the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, and co-author of two classic books on hypnotherapy and dissociative disorders, she taught nationally and internationally. An avid reader, and a lifetime learner as well as a teacher, she also loved cooking and eating gourmet food, hiking, films, the latest tech gadgets, and the companionship of animals and her circle of beloved friends. She is mourned by her wide community of patients, students, colleagues and loving friends who she graced with her knowledge, wit, and magnanimous spirit. Funeral arrangements are private. Memorial donations may be made, in her name, to a charity fostering environmental and animal welfare such as Defenders of Wildlife. Funeral arrangements have been made through John Everett & Sons Funeral Home of NATICK.
