About Jorie Miklos
Hello there! Oftentimes I’m asked why I decided to become a therapist. My response – I believe people have the ability to change, grow, and persevere. I believe we have the strength and resiliency for change; we sometimes just need a little help getting there.
I understand the process of healing can feel daunting and overwhelming. This is why I work to create a safe, respectful, and trusting environment for you to express yourself. My approach is genuine, and I incorporate some light humor where appropriate as a little bit of laughter is good for the soul. Along the way, I tailor my work to each individual client that comes into my office, because therapy does not have a “one size fits all” approach. I promise to be your biggest advocate and supporter, and challenging you through the tough times with compassion and understanding.
I am passionate about working with adolescents and young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, grief/loss, and adjustment to developmental and life transitions.
I know you are capable of vulnerability to lead a more authentic life for yourself, and I know you are deserving of feeling calmer, more at ease, and connected. Ultimately, my mission is to help you find your inner happiness and peace.
When not in the office, I am enjoying my dog, Charlie, working out, visiting with my little niece and nephews, decorating my house, cooking and baking, and listening to country music!
