Mariposa Therapy & Assessment

Marta J.L. Miranda, Psy.D.,  Clinical Psychologist

Individual Psychotherapy

I provide trauma-informed psychotherapy to individuals, ages 15-65+.  I am qualified to treat the following therapeutic concerns:

  • Immigration trauma, including acculturation and adjustment difficulties
  • Race/cultural discrimination and micro-aggressions
  • Physical, verbal, emotional, and sexual abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex PTSD
  • Addictions
  • Dissociative disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Mood and anxiety disorders

In addition to offering traditional talk therapy, I am trained in the following:

  • Art Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) 

Fee:  $150 per 55 minute session.  A limited number of reduced-fee slots are occasionally available for low-income clients.
Cancellation policy:  I charge my full fee for any session cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.

Group Psychotherapy

From time to time, I may offer group psychotherapy.  Each group consists of 6-8 individuals with similar interests and/or concerns.  Group therapy is often an effective way to learn interpersonal relationship skills and/or emotional distress tolerance skills in a safe, nurturing, and confidential  environment.  Groups may be time-limited or long-term, and generally last 1.5- 2 hours per session.  Group offerings include (but are not limited) to:

  • art therapy
  • psychodynamic, interpersonal process groups

Fee:  $45-60/session, depending on the group.  Please contact me to see if I am offering any groups.

Psychological Assessment

I offer psychological evaluations and assessments for:

  • learning disabilities/ attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • immigration (VAWA, N-648 waivers, hardship waivers, cancellation of removal, political asylum)
  • court-ordered mental health evaluations 
  • diagnostic clarification
  • disability benefits

: varies, depending on complexity of the case.
