Miranda Hosbein, MA, LMFT is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT 131089). Miranda is compassionate, non-judgemental, and empathetic, and she strongly values the opportunity to connect with clients in order to collaboratively find and build on their personal strengths, to enhance their quality of life, and build a meaningful life worth living. Miranda believes that every person comes to therapy as a unique human with their own story to tell, and she seeks to create a strong therapeutic relationship in order to provide opportunities to explore values, goals, and the ‘why’ behind the work done in therapy. While she knows this can often be a vulnerable experience for people, Miranda seeks to empower clients to find their strengths and enhance resiliency through this process.
Miranda received her Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2016 from the University of San Diego and received her Bachelor of Arts in Human Development and Family Studies with specializations in Child Development and Family Systems and Stress Models. Her professional experience in the therapy field includes over five years of clinical experience working with youth, adults, families, couples, and groups. Miranda started her clinical work through Rady Children's Outpatient Psychiatry working with children, teens, and families, and expanded this to include volunteering at pop-up medical facilities in Tijuana, Mexico. Miranda then proceeded to provide school-based therapy to pre-teens, teens, and their families through the South Carolina Department of Mental Health. She also participated in community panels to increase suicide awareness and improve community response in crisis, and worked diligently to implement support within the schools to improve awareness of student mental health needs and increase trauma-informed school interactions.
Outside of the therapy setting, Miranda also has over 10 years of experience supporting youth, adults, and families through non-profit outreach and family support programs across Michigan and in Washington, D.C. These experiences included enrichment program development for youth to create an engaging environment to learn, grow, and connect with peers and supportive adults, as well as providing play-based programing, functional family support, and advocacy in family homeless shelters. Miranda also has training and experience providing intensive, in-home Applied Behavior Analysis (or ABA Therapy) to children and families managing significant behavioral and developmental concerns. In any setting and role, Miranda makes it a priority to create genuine and authentic connections with youth, families, and adults and strongly believes in the power that comes from supportive and meaningful relationships.
