My Approach to Helping

Michelle Vidana, LPCC
Hello, My name is Michelle and I am a Licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) with over 10 years of experience working in the social services field. I started off with humble beginnings and grew up in a low-income community as a first generation born Vietnamese American and have first hand experience of the complex needs of vulnerable populations. My upbringing also taught me the power of resilience, setting boundaries, believing in “come backs,” taking ownership, rewriting narratives, asserting needs and unburdening ourselves of past hurts.

I specialize in life transition, grief and loss, management of serious mental illness, improving communication and assertiveness skills, traumatrans generational trauma, substance abuse, anxiety and depression, and acculturative stressvictims of violence, bullying and oppression.

I am skilled in multiple evidence-based therapeutic modalities, which I utilize to help clients change patterns of unhelpful thoughts, bring clarity and understanding, improve relationshipscommunication, and properly grieve and process past hurts – all while learning tangible, practical skills that can be applied each day and improve quality of life.
