Miriam

I am a clinical psychologist who utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) framework to help individuals become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors contributing toward psychological struggles in their lives. I help clients gain more awareness of their internal experiences, such as thought and emotional patterns, so they can accept, change, and ease their experienced pain. Additionally, I help individuals explore their behaviors and relationships, so they can create life changes in line with their short and long term goals and values. I work with teenagers, adults, and families on strengthening their emotional regulation, adaptive problem solving, communication, and cognitive coping skills.


Over and above the specific type of therapy I use, there is a main principal that guides all of my therapeutic work, which is establishing a therapeutic relationship that is non-judgmental and collaborative. I make it a constant goal to have a better understanding of the complex nature of my clients and their surroundings, so that I can help each person through the prism of collaboration and humility. As a psychologist, I feel it is an immense privilege and honor to sit with an individual’s raw emotion and pain, and through therapy, I hope to slow down time and help clients build upon their strengths, continuously enhancing their multifaceted narrative that is life.
