Who Do I Work With?

Hi!  My name is Miranda and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from National University and my BA in Sociology from UCSB. 


My passion has always been working with people to untangle life's struggles. Are you currently going through a life transition and need extra support?  I've got you covered!  I work at my client's pace and work together as a team to help you build coping skills, work on negative thought patterns, and help set healthy boundaries.

Another area of expertise is in parenting and working on reparenting yourself to break family cycles and build a strong healthy family dynamic. I have a passion for helping parents connect with themselves and work on different strategies with their children.


I incorporate several different modalities of therapy including traditional talk therapy, play therapy, and art therapy among others.  If you feel that you are ready to take the next step towards a happier healthier life please fill out the contact page and I will get back to you within 24-48 hours on business days (Monday-Friday).  Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

As a parent I felt helpless and lost, and Miranda made us feel an overwhelming amount of comfort and peace. She has helped my daughter navigate through life’s emotional challenges, fears and uncertainties... The tools my daughter has received from Miranda at such a young age to allow her to express and communicate in a healthy manner has been a huge triumph for our family. I feel like the help and advice I’ve received as a parent has also given me the opportunity to better understand the depth of her emotional warfare and allow me to be a more loving, understanding and a patient parent even when I thought I couldn’t be. My daughter now has a better chance at healing in a healthy way and we’ve both been able to create a safe space to be open and honest with one another and grow stronger together. -KR

I was stubborn, selfish, and set in my ways. I now know that ‘now’ is the right time to have clarity.
It’s never too late, nor too early, to grow a wider perspective.
I attribute Miranda for helping me achieve attainable goals and for helping me identify and overcome my obstacles. I’m a work in progress. My life long issues have dissipated.- CE


I’m so glad I got the appointment with Miranda, I had been through 3 therapists and a psychiatrist before I had scheduled an appointment with her. I met Miranda at a low time in my life, I was extremely vulnerable coming out of a five year toxic relationship. Therapy has helped me become a better person and live a much healthier life... I have grown to understand myself better and it has helped me build better relationships with the people in my life. She has also helped me open up and create a safe haven for me to come and talk...
