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 what no longer serves you.
It is my philosophy that as we learn new skills (acceptance, regulation, self soothing) and how to apply and practice those 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.
