I have spent the past year working with Miriam. After previous and less impactful attempts at therapy, Miriam has found a path forward for me. She responds to my messages, always offering a calm and positive perspective, and it has been so encouraging to know she is there. She is a dedicated professional who constantly continues to expand her knowledge and is always looking for new resources to help her clients understand and comprehend the lessons to be learned. Miriam is gracious, kind, patient, supportive and deeply committed to the health of those trusted to be in her care. I have learned a lot and I am hopeful about my future now I have better tools to use. It’s impossible to express my gratitude to her.
