Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MA, AMFT
Verified
I'm an openly gay therapist and proud member of the LGBTQ + Community and I have been personally navigating my own Coming Out Journey for over 20 years, so I understand what you're going through, and I offer a safe space to allow you to discover your authentic self and to let others see who you were born to be.
Navigating the Coming Out Journey is a lifelong process, and going through it—with or without a partner—while dealing with the judgment and expectations from family, work, church, and society, instills shame, fear, confusion, pain, suffering, and loss that seems to control every waking moment.

Miranda @ Mental Wealth Counseling
Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, AMFT
Verified
As someone who identifies as queer and gender fluid, it is a great honor to work with LGBTQIA adults and groups.
Hey you! My name is Miranda. Like many, I came to the world of therapy through my own healing journey. I view mental health and resilience as deeply intertwined with social justice — both because injustice creates trauma, and because our determination to heal can elevate both ourselves and our larger communities. In my spare time, I love doting on my two senior kitties, crafting and baking, and living up to stereotypes about “woo-woo” Californians. I am most effective with clients who are recovering from trauma and abuse, including from the effects of childhood events and societal oppression.

I specialize in treating clients with major depression, anxiety, PTSD, parenting and relationship issues, adoption- and infertility-related concerns, and LGBTQ issues.
I am passionate about my work, because it allows me to help people become their best selves. For over thirty years, I have helped my clients to improve the quality of their lives by helping them to see that their struggles are not because there is something wrong with them, but because something wrong happened to them. My vision for my clients is that they learn how to practice self-compassion, to let go of debilitating shame, to live an authentic life, and to experience true joy.

I am a LGBTQIA + affirming and specialize in helping clients understand themselves and experience whether issues be specific to their gender and identity or relationships with others.
Life is full of difficulty and uncertainty, as a therapist, I work towards creating a safe space for my clients to explore themselves and their relationships. I enjoy working with individuals and couples to help them heal through self discovery. My hope is to provide them with the necessary understanding to create change and minimize suffering. I invite my clients to explore their earliest relationships to help them identify how those experiences may be impacting their current life. I believe by bringing awareness to what is uncounsious, my clients will have a better opportunity to make healthier lasting change with understanding.

As a queer , first generation, Asian American therapist, I view therapy through an intersectionality lens to understand the layering experiences of the identities we hold.
Taking the first steps towards healing our inner wounds is a journey that does not have to be made alone. Therapy is a space for your to be seen, heard, and foster a sense of security. With a client centered approach, I am here to walk side by side you, with a goal of making you feel empowered to make the positive changes you want to make for your life. By navigating our past experiences, we uncover patterns, messages, and beliefs we internalize that holds us back in our present moments. Gaining awareness of our past, and making new meaning, we are able to create new experiences for our future.

I specialize in helping navigate the complex experiences of people who hold multiple identities, in other words, those who identify with one or more traditionally marginalized and oppressed groups such as LGBTQ , racial, gender, and cultural minorities.
Authenticity, self-acceptance, and social justice are the tenets that guide my work as a therapist. Through our work in cultivating an affirming and nonjudgemental relationship, and drawing from both of our lived experiences, I will support you in deconstructing what is causing ongoing distress in your life, help facilitate insight and empowerment, and foster building healthier and more authentic relationships with your self and with others.

I work well with teens and adults, individuals or couples and families, and I specialize with ethnic minority issues and LGBTQIA + issues. We can work on current issues such as adjusting our thought processes to combat unhealthful or inaccurate thoughts. We can work on relaxation and coping skills to get you through the tough times. We can also work on past issues, revisiting memories from the past and childhood. We would reprocess those memories, use new words to accurately describe the memories, which then foster a new relationship with the memory, hopefully making it less impactful in your current state.
