Claudia Viadro | Paradigm San Francisco

Claudia Viadro is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who received her Master’s of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University’s Holistic Studies program. She is trained in EMDR and specializes in trauma-informed care. Claudia has extensive experience working with teens and their families through the provision of individual, group and family psychotherapy in intensive outpatient, school-based, and community mental health settings. While supervising school-based counseling programs, providing intensive outpatient therapy to adolescents in a day treatment program, and leading the clinical direction for an evidenced based, mental health and substance abuse intervention program for teens, she focused on a range of adolescent mental health issues, including mood disorders, anxiety, addictive behaviors, personality disturbances, and traumatic stress.

Claudia’s approach to psychotherapy, though inclusive of a trauma-informed framework, is informed by Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, Attachment, and Existential Humanistic Theory. She believes that teens and families are best serviced in the context of meaningful relationships and she attributes her personal approach, in large part, to the challenges and rewards of parenting her own adolescent children.
