About the Therapist

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.  My background consists of working in a hospice setting with families going through the grief process, working for Regional Center providing social worker tasks for people with developmental disabilities, working with adolescents in the foster care system, working in a therapeutic setting with children and their families in a school and outpatient setting, and most recently providing The Incredible Years curriculum to elementary school aged children teaching social emotional skills.  

My specialty is working with children and adolescents along with their families to work on issues surrounding depression, anxiety, family transitions (divorce, separation, new family members, etc.), behavioral concerns in the home and/or school (physical/verbal aggression, academic issues, social skills, bullying, etc.) , previous trauma including physical and/or emotional abuse, and/or strains within family relationships.  I understand that each family is different and I tailor my therapeutic services to each person I work with to create the best possible outcome for you and your family.

I utilize 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.  Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
