Miriam grew up in Southern California and received her Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California in 2002. She became a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in 2006.
Miriam's interest in grief deepened after volunteering at a grief camp for children who had lost a parent or sibling. It was then when she herself realized that she had losses that she had not fully processed. In doing her own grief work and further studying grief and loss, she realized it was one of her passions to help others cope with loss in healthy and constructive ways. Her modalities are integrative and include strengths-based, trauma-informed, and person- centered.
Miriam has worked for over 18 years in hospitals and outpatient medical centers, providing support to patients with a serious illness and end-of life issues. She also provides support to caregivers, and encourages them to care for themselves as much as they care for their loved ones who have a serious illness. She also helps people cope with the loss of a pet, as they are just as much part of the family.
Miriam's private practice is solely virtual now and sees clients virtually throughout California. She has availability on Thursdays.
