Our Program

Our mission is to provide quality counseling services and Educationally Related Mental Health Services at an affordable rate to a population that benefits tremendously from school-based services. Our Therapists are on campus to help children and teens work through personal issues, and are also available to help with conflict and crises that come up day to day in the classroom. When working with students with disabilities we provide services that will help the student receive meaningful educational benefit in the least restrictive environment. We work closely with school personnel to be sure the students and school districts are receiving excellent services.

Who are the Therapists?

Therapists who are Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, or Licensed Clinical Psychologists or are working towards licensure. The pre-licensure Therapists are supervised by Miri Center Licensed Psychotherapists. We are very selective during our hiring process and only hire Therapists that have already completed their Graduate Degree, and those that we feel would be a great fit for the particular program and population being served.

Now Offering TeleTherapy Services

The Miri Center is now offering TeleTherapy for schools and for individuals seeking out private therapy for their child, teen or family. Because of recent advances in communication technology, the field of TeleTherapy has evolved. It has allowed individuals who may not have local access to a mental health professional to use electronic means to receive services, which we are grateful for during shelter in place and social distancing. There are some differences between TeleTherapy and face to face therapy, so please feel to reach out for a consultation to discuss the difference between the two.
