Michelle Vidana

LPCC #5686

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

I specialize in life transition, grief and loss, managing severe mental illness, improving communication and assertiveness skills, trauma/transgenerational trauma, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, acculturative stress/victims 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 relationships/communication, and adequately grieve and process past hurts – all while learning tangible, practical skills that can be applied each day and improve quality of life.
