Miranda earned her Master’s in Occupational Therapy from Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine in 2013 and a Bachelor’s in Human Development from Cornell University in 2009. Prior to working in pediatrics, Miranda piloted research using sensory-based techniques during her time at an outpatient facility for adults with severe neurological injury. Her work was honored at the American Occupational Therapy Association’s annual conference in 2015. During this experience, Miranda became increasingly active in learning more about sensory processing. She has taken a variety of continuing education courses including completing the USC program in Sensory Integration. She is trained in Therapeutic Listening, the SOS Feeding Approach, and DIR/Floortime. Miranda believes strongly in therapeutic use of self and building a strong connection with the children she treats. She is experienced in treating a wide range of developmental abilities due to sensory processing disorder, ASD, ADHD, Down’s Syndrome, genetic conditions, and other developmental delay. Miranda has a stepdaughter with ADHD and multiple learning disabilities and believes strongly in parent and caregiver education and involvement in your child’s care to provide the best treatment outcomes.
