Following a career in film and television production, Mia decided to combine her interest in identity development with her belief in the possibility for self betterment and self discovery through psychotherapy. She is deeply committed to helping individuals and couples understand how their feelings, thoughts, and experiences impact their perceptions of their lives, selves, and relationships.

Mia holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies with a concentration in Cinema and Media Studies from Carleton College in Northfield, MN, and a Master of Arts degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University. She is a member of the American Counseling Association and the New York Mental Health Counselors Association. She is a volunteer Peer Counselor and member of the steering committee of Identity House, an all-volunteer LGBTQ counseling non-profit organization in New York City.

Mia is trained and experienced in several therapeutic modalities, including Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy. Areas of particular interest include gender and sexuality issues, depression, anxiety, self acceptance, and adolescent/early adulthood struggles.
