Miranda Llano


Sometimes life is not what we expected it to be.  There are ups and downs, and we can almost feel suffocated and not know where to turn to.  That is where therapy can be life-changing, and finding the right therapist can be a starting point for interpersonal growth.

I value the relationship between myself and the client, and work really hard to build rapport to create trust.  I love to empower my clients, so they can have emotionally healthier lifestyles, better relationships with others, and overall, more positive family environments.  I, especially, have a passion for helping parents navigate the many stressors related to parenting.

My approach to therapy is being a sounding board to help clients take control of their lives, with my support and guidance.  This is your life, and I am here for the ride.  I encourage my clients because I see the importance of just being heard and respected.
