I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia and a Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health Service Provider in Tennessee with eight years of post-master's counseling experience and a Veteran of the USMC. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Counseling and Human Development with a concentration in Clinical Mental Health Therapy from Radford University in 2015. Since then, I have provided several facets of therapy from Outpatient care for adults and children to crisis counseling for adolescents and children. I have worked as a therapist in a Level III Trauma Residential facility for youth and in a juvenile detention center providing clinical treatment to the residents. I have been a Director of an Adolescent SA IOP program. I am currently a Behavioral Health Consultant for a mental health agency in Virginia. I have done extensive trauma work and have multiple certifications in EMDR therapy. Additionally, I have experience working with personality disorders, Conduct Disorder and impulsivity. I completed my certification as a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider and have a passion with working with complex cases. I enjoy working with most all clients, specifically those who want change in their lives. I pride myself in being non-judgmental and accepting of my clients and empowering them to take back whatever their current issues are depriving them from. I have a vast array of theoretical approaches and like to tailor my approach to the specific and unique needs of each client. I look forward to working with you!

Maranda is an amazing gift to me. I've worked with her for almost 3 years on BetterHelp for some serious and lifelong issues that another therapist once told me would be with me forever, and it is hard to find words to describe the transformation that I have experienced.

One word: amazing!
Miranda is the go-to gal. I have felt in good hands during every session. She’s patient and kind and always super considerate of how I’m feeling. I could not recommend her enough.
