Miranda joins GE Family Services as a Clinician to work with children, adolescents, teens dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+ and other issues. She provides telehealth services throughout Alaska and in-person services in Juneau, Alaska.
Miranda lives in Juneau, Alaska, when she is not working she will be crafting, reading, or spending time with her friends and family enjoying everything Juneau has to offer.
Miranda was born and raised in Alaska, she traveled and did volunteer work in Africa and Europe and then landed back in Juneau in 2004. She has worked in the medical field for over 20 years as a nursing assistant, medical assistant, health educator and as a dietitian. She decided to return to school and get her Masters in Social Work after a traumatic accident that left her wondering ‘what’s next, what’s my purpose?”
Miranda’s unique experience as a dietitian, health educator, and clinician allowed her to specialize in treatment of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. She also works with individuals experiencing substance use disorder and enjoys supporting those in recovery. To treat dual diagnosis in clients Miranda employs a strength based program where she uses dialectical behavioral therapy and other evidence based therapy models. Providing non-judgmental psychotherapy in a trauma informed environment and connecting with her clients is the most important thing to Miranda.
