Hi, I'm Mia and I'm so glad you're here. I believe that mental wellness is attainable for everyone who is willing to do the work. Like cultivating a beautiful garden, although the work can be difficult and sometimes messy, the results are beautiful and miraculous. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with the foundation of Positive and Self Psychology we will take a closer look at your beliefs, behaviors, and experiences with the goal of increasing health and getting rid of those that are no longer serving you. It is my philosophy that as we learn new skills (coping, healing, self care), how to apply those new skills, and practice new skills, we will begin to manifest the experiences that bring joy into our lives.
I also believe that behavioral health and mental wellness are rooted in how we are developing within the context of our relationships. I recognize that every interaction we have, whether within our own thoughts and feelings or with another person, is a chance to live up to our best Self or to recede into more comfortable, dysfunctional behaviors. In choosing me as your provider you are making a commitment to not only yourself but to those around you to find the best in yourself and bring out the best in others.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Depression

Mia helped me more than one year to get through some difficult times in my life, which included big changes in work and private life. She helped me to set boundaries and get better with my anxiety issues. She gave me now and then small homework to focus on, which helped me to implement small changes slowly into my life. I am very grateful for her work and appreciate her a lot. Thank you, Mia :)

Mia is the best. She feels like a best friend and is always so supportive and wise and caring in helping me figure out why I feel how I feel. I look forward to talking to her every week, and don’t want to stop therapy with her even though I’ve worked through my original issue!! Thank you Mia :)

Mia is so wonderful: super organized (remembers all conversations and will consistently give “homework” if you want it), on time, calming in the way she speaks, thoughtful in her approach to working through problems.

Mia is AMAZING. She is a great listener and advocates for YOU. She knows what is important to you and reminds you of it. She helped me climb out of a dark hole that was so foreign to me. I will forever be grateful to her time and help. Everyone needs a Mia!
