Claudia Vidano, MFT

“More than 30 years experience with children, adults, families and groups have given me deep appreciation for struggle and vulnerability as well as healing and joy. I am wholeheartedly dedicated to exploring meaningful changes with you.”

Therapy is an exciting and challenging opportunity for change, a way to gain new perspectives, develop inner and outer strength, and relieve suffering.

At heart, therapy involves deep listening, trust and courage. As your therapist, I offer compassionate support, being mindful of what is unique about you and your situation.

Using evidence-based practices, I focus on your moment-to-moment experience in therapy while keeping in mind your desired outcome. I respect the roots of how you view yourself as well as your place and your role in your environment.

Your motivation for therapy may be a desire for clarity about your emotions, your thoughts, your behavior or your relationships.

We can co-create manageable steps to address issues such as:

  • Family transitions, such as birth of a child or children leaving home
  • Life transitions, such as new job or moving
  • Anxiety, phobias, worry, obsessions, hoarding
  • Grief and loss of close relationships (marriage, a partner, a parent, a child)
  • Depression, despair
  • Addiction
  • Illness–acute, chronic or life-threatening

All of these situations can cause overwhelming emotions where it seems that we are not able to function as we wish we could. An experienced professional can help – offering a safe place to review your life choices, plan next steps and resolve personal issues.
