About Me

Welcome! I am a licensed mental health professional with 12 years experience who is passionate in providing quality core care. I specialize in establishing therapeutic relationship and creating an environment where my clients feel they can be their authentic self. I have experience in providing counseling for coping skills, the complexities of trauma, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. Some of the techniques that I use includes cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, psychoeducation and solution-focused therapy. I have years of experiences working with adolescents who struggle with adjustment issues, behavioral issues, self-esteem and difficulties transitioning from preteens to teens.

We all, at our core crave a state of harmony. When this is disrupted we can easily become overwhelmed and may need help getting back on track. I admire your courage in taking the first step of seeking a therapist to place you on the right path in regaining your balance. Let's work together so that we can help you in getting back to you!

Miriam is amazing! She is relatable, compassionate, funny, and comes up with creative ways to solve problems while also listening to you if you just need to "vent". I feel supported and heard and I can't recommend Miriam enough.

Miriam was a godsend for me! I started counseling with her 6 months ago due to depression. She has helped me learn how to notice triggers, develop coping skills, manage my emotions, and process through cognitive dissonances. I am now a much healthier person mentally and emotionally due to her expertise. So grateful for her help!!

Miriam has spent several sessions getting to know me, and giving me homework to work on myself. The conversations are thoughtful, but down to earth. Have really enjoyed my sessions with her!

Miriam is a wonderful therapist! She is very easy to talk to and is flexible with her schedule. I would strongly recommend her to others that are still looking for a therapist.

I am very happy with Miriam. She knows what I've been going through with my wife and is very supportive and understanding. She knows exactly how I should respond and what to say and do. I have come to understand my marital situation much better through Miriam. Highly recommended.

Miriam has helped me through a dark time in my life. One where all my problems were self inflicted. She gave honest and accurate help which allowed me to accept this and move on.

Thanks very much.

Easy to talk to. Very smart when it comes to my relationship with my wife. Miriam seems to have all the answers I've been struggling with. I'm glad I chose Miriam to get a female's point of view. Thanks Miriam.

She's been a great help. Turns out all I needed was to be pointed in the right direction. Couldn't have done it without her.
