Miranda Robinson



Miranda has a passion to help people who have struggled with overcoming obstacles in their life. She believes that childhood experiences have a huge impact on our ability to be able to manage our own thoughts, feelings and behaviors. She works from a trauma informed, trauma focused lens that takes into account adverse childhood experiences as keystones to a person’s current ability to manage their own mental health. Faith and hope are the cornerstones that can move us in the right direction, especially with someone who is willing to listen, help us process and be empathetic about our experiences.
