Mirjam graduated with a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from New York University and has previously worked at Weill Cornell’s substance abuse outpatient clinic.
Mirjam uses an integrative and holistic approach to therapy, integrating several therapeutic techniques from cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and humanistic disciplines. She also incorporates mindfulness-based interventions into her clinical work. She strives to provide a safe, compassionate and collaborative space during therapy that lays the groundwork for increased self-compassion, self-empowerment and adaptability. The individually-tailored psychotherapy she provides helps clients gain insight into past and present experiences, interpersonal dynamics, as well as recurrent thought and behavior patterns.
She has experience working with a broad range of issues including: depression, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, and women’s health (pre/postnatal, infertility). She also provides behavioral parenting training (BPT) to parents as part of her research work. Mirjam is trained in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
