Miranda York

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I specialize in working with people who've experienced childhood trauma, whether that be physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, chronic neglect, a parent with a personality disorder or a drug or alcohol addition, growing up in poverty, or growing up with systemic oppression.

My Approach

My practice is anti oppression and trauma informed. I am trained in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic therapy techniques, as well as various somatic techniques for trauma. I am warm and interactive. The therapy relationship can serve as a safer space to discover your old patterns of relating and try out new ones. I listen to you deeply, trying to hear what you are saying between the lines and work to empathically understand your inner conflicts and elaborate on unconscious dynamics that may be driving difficult patterns in your life. We will work together to explore the root causes of your struggles, to release these patterns and help you move towards more freedom, liberation, and ease in life. I work with couples to understand attachment conflicts, and I can also work with attachment in open relationships and polyamorous arrangements. Sometimes old traumas can cause reactivity and repetition in relationships, and we will explore this to enable more connection.
