Professional statement

Meira has been involved in activism and advocacy for decades having been inspired by the activism of her parents and grandparents who impacted many lives with their community work.

She has received multiple awards and recognition for leadership and public service that includes work within the LGBTQ community acknowledged in Duke Law J. 1988 Feb; (1): 29-70 by Dr. Troyen A. Brennan, M.D., for research assistance on a study that advocated for greater access to health care for those diagnosed with AIDS early in the epidemic.

Meira is a licensed trauma psychotherapist in private practice specializing in C-PTSD, relational-based trauma, addiction, autism, identity cohesion and racial/intergenerational trauma. Her current aspiration involves expanding her practice to cultivate leadership among providers and community members to support change that increases access to mental health services while also improving the conditions and terms under which providers work.

She provides supportive therapy for adults with a late autism diagnosis on their journey of self-discovery. Meira works with individuals and also families to reframe old narratives that hold outdated and harmful beliefs as part of self-acceptance and empowerment. She believes that we do not experience full liberation until we can treat ourselves with compassion and honor our healing journey. Meira is available for telehealth and (limited) in person sessions. She runs weekly trauma groups and parent-assisted groups for autistic adolescents.

Message to clients

I approach serving my neurodivergent clients from a social justice, relational, liberationist, somatic and affirming perspective that is trauma informed. My goal as a neurodivergent affirming therapist is to help you honor your neurotype notwithstanding any diagnosis or outsider perspective including that of other ND folk.

I work with late-identified and late-diagnosed Autistic and AuDHD adults as they cope with the emotional and other impacts of a late diagnosis. I also work with families comprised of multiple autistics including parents or parents who are allistic (non-autistic) who might also be dealing with a late diagnosis or are navigating the world of providers and various referrals as they settle into their journey of discovery. Sometimes a diagnosis can challenge long held beliefs and disrupt one’s sense of Self and interactions with others.

My work is influenced by feminist theory which explores the ways in which systemic oppression affects mental health. In other words, we will consider how power dynamics affect your feeling capable and confident in the world to express your identity to the fullest.

Our work together may include: exploring and accommodating your sensory needs, self-expression, tailoring an individualize self-care plan, strengthening your self-advocacy skills, boundary work and energy management coaching. I also specialize in using an anti-ableist approach to help address perfectionism and procrastination to facilitate self-compassion and emotional literacy.
