About My Clients

Mia is an intern therapist at MEND Seattle. The organization provides quality, reasonable-cost mental health counseling to individuals, couples and groups. We are a collective of healers with diverse educational backgrounds and identities committed to an anti-oppressive and liberatory approach to therapy. We emphasize serving the QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Community. Mia specializes in racial identity, life transitions, self-esteem, LGBTQ+ identity exploration.

My Background and Approach

Mia sees therapy as a safe space to share your story, to be authentically you, to grow, to heal, to explore, and to create the changes you are seeking to make in your life. As a bisexual woman of color, she is dedicated to working with QTBIPOC folx, as she understands the experience of navigating a multiplicity of identities based on different contexts and stages of life. Her clinical background is rooted in narrative and humanistic therapy and she's currently training to be a licensed marriage and family therapist in the Couples and Family Therapy program at Seattle University.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

MEND Seattle values intersectional feminism and liberatory practices as a guide in our work of building a dynamic social justice mental health organization. We are committed to consistent critical thinking, reflection, and understanding of how systemic power structures work on us to shape our intrapsychic lives, our interpersonal relationships, and MEND’s institutional realities. We believe that critical social theory and an anti-oppressive lens are essential tools to personal and collective transformation. As a team, we aim to center our QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color) voices and needs in the community.
