Miriam is a licensed certified social worker with a master’s degree in social work from Boston College. Her style is friendly, pragmatic, and goal oriented. She believes everyone has the right to emotional health, and that no two paths toward wellbeing look alike. From her work as a designer and maker, Miriam uses creative troubleshooting as she helps clients identify and achieve the change they are hoping for. She invests in the outcomes her clients seek and actively facilitates a process to leverage strengths, insights, and possibilities towards those outcomes.
Miriam works with anxiety, depression, stress management and life transitions. In addition, she is passionate about and has lots of experience working with folks on the autism spectrum, disabled people/people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA+ individuals. She also has experience providing parent and family support.
Miriam sees the mental health challenges we all face in the context of identity, family, culture, and the larger societal systems we live within. The lenses and modalities that inform Miriam’s approach are: Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, neurodiversity and disability justice.
Due to her status as a pre-licensed clinician, Miriam is only able to accept clients with Cigna, Optum, United, Harvard Pilgrim, and AllWays insurance, or self-pay.
