Miranda is a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate under the supervision of Angela Peña, PhD, NCC, LPC-S. Miranda obtained her Bachelor of Science in Child and Family Studies with a minor in Psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi, and her Master of Science in Counseling and Development from Texas Woman’s University.
She has previous experience working at a children’s advocacy center where she was able to work with individuals who have experienced physical and/or sexual abuse, as well as their non-offending caregivers. This has allowed her to work through issues such as trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and relational problems. She utilizes person-centered therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in her work.
Miranda believes that the most important factor of change in therapy is the collaborative relationship created. During the counseling process, Miranda will create an empathetic and nonjudgmental environment in the counseling room for you to feel comfortable to bring in your obstacles and worries. She specializes in working with clients that struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, coping skills, self-esteem, and peer relationships.
