More About Miranda (Mandy) Byram
While I have experience working with persons aged 3 and up, the majority of my clinical experience has been in working with individuals aged 11 and up. Additionally, I enjoy working with families and couples with a wide range of presenting problems. I have over 13 years experience working with both perpetrators and victims of sexualized violence using a multidisciplinary team approach. I have worked extensively with individuals with a wide-range of presenting problems including, but not limited to, personality disorders, mood disorders, partner-relational problems, parent-child relational problems, trauma, severe and persistent mental illness, and addiction.
My clinical approach is informed by my training in family systems and wanting to meet each client where they are at within the change process. I work toward a comprehensive understanding of each client's family and developmental history, as well as their strengths and needs, to help inform the treatment process. I want to foster a safe and comfortable therapeutic environment that allows for clients to share the intimate details of their stories with me, and one in which they feel heard and understood. I feel honored to be a part of each client's journey, and desire for each client to walk away from the therapy process feeling empowered and confident.
I have an interest in overall well-being, and in addition to my mental health licensures I am a certified Health Coach and Group Fitness Instructor. When I have the time I have enjoyed teaching a variety of group fitness classes. I also enjoy running and have been known to run a few races for fun from time to time. I am a mom to three very busy and active kids, and enjoy watching them in all their activities and cheering them on. During my downtime I enjoy my cups of coffee, reading a good book, or watching my favorite sports teams compete (Yes, I'm a die hard Twins and Vikings fan, SKOL!).
