About Miranda Jean
Ms. Jean provides individual therapy to young adults. She helps clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss, and life transitions.
She particularly enjoys working with clients within the LGBTQ+ community and those from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Ms. Jean uses a strengths-based and person-centered approach with her clients. She integrates three different therapeutic orientations — cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, and narrative therapy.
CBT is a heavily researched and popular form of psychotherapy that links our thoughts to our feelings and behaviors. If we’re able to challenge our distorted or irrational thoughts, and replace them with more rational ones, we may be able to change our resulting feelings and behaviors.
CBT has been found to be particularly helpful in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
Narrative therapy is a form of counseling that views people as separate from their problems. This allows clients to get some distance from the issue. It provides a way see how it might actually be helping them, or protecting them, more than hurting them. With this new perspective, people feel more empowered to make changes in their thought patterns and behavior and “rewrite” their life story.
Prior to joining DC Talk Therapy, Ms. Jean provided behavioral health services to individuals and families at Community of Hope in Washington, D.C. She also worked at Washington Hospital Center.
A native of Houston, Ms. Jean holds a master’s degree in clinical social work from The University of Texas at Austin. She has a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Tulane University.
Ms. Jean offers daytime and evening sessions. She uses Zoom or Doxy for all of her sessions.
