"The thoughts we choose to think are the tools we use to paint the canvas of our lives" - Louise Hay
Dr. Miranda is a board-eligible psychiatrist who aims to provide exceptional mental health care to all. She completed her undergraduate education at Boston College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and then worked as a mental health specialist at McLean Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, before embarking on her journey to medical school. She received her medical degree from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, Maine. She then moved to New York to complete her general psychiatry residency at the Garnet Health Medical Center (formerly Orange Regional Medical Center) and her fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra Northwell/The Zucker Hillside Hospital.
During her training, Dr. Miranda gained extensive experience treating an array of psychiatric disorders in diverse settings and patient populations, including children, adolescents, young adults, adults, the elderly, LGBTQ+ individuals, perinatal women, and veterans. Additionally, she has worked with experts on cases of many treatment-resistant psychopathologies and provided consultations for patients considering procedural interventions such as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). Dr. Miranda is certified in both ECT and OMT. She has a personal interest in trauma, psychospiritual issues, and women’s health, specifically perinatal depression.
Dr. Miranda believes in a holistic, supportive, collaborative, and patient-centered approach to patient care. She is dedicated to ensuring all her clients have access to evidence-based treatment backed by psychoeducation to help them make informed decisions regarding their care and achieve their goals. While Dr. Miranda's practice primarily focuses on medication management, she typically incorporates elements of various psychotherapy modalities in follow up visits. However, in some cases, Dr. Miranda may believe that more intensive therapy is needed and recommend that you bring a therapist into your care team for the best outcome.
