Miradrienne Carroll began her journey as a healer as a psychology major. Her understanding of healing passed through several stages, from believing that intellectual understanding was everything to believing that psychopharmacology was everything. While studying the philosophy of the social sciences she became convinced that the realm of healing behavior and emotion is a subjective art that borrows tools from science. A bit later she was impressed by the fact that the majority of modern medical science recognized only one effective treatment for the scourge of addiction-the program of Alcoholics Anonymous-which is spiritual in nature.
Introduced to "A Course in Miracles" in 1993, Mira came to understand that the core issue underlying all dis-ease is the mistaken belief that we are separate from God. While many physical, psychological, and cognitive tools provide effective relief and support to get through our problems, curing or solving them requires a spiritual approach. This applies to grief, addictions, codependence, psychological and emotional problems, and everyday impediments to a joyful life such as stress and negative emotions. From this perspective Mira offers counseling to those ready to look at their challenges in a spiritual light.
Mira embodies a strength forged from walking the path of healing from depression, eating disorders, alcoholism, nicotine addiction, and anger issues. With the gift of sobriety, Mira transformed from a "seeker" to a "finder." Through "A Course in Miracles" Mira uncovered her crystal light and is polishing the facets through the spiritual practice of forgiveness. Along the way Mira has become well-versed in practical recovery, cognitive-behavioral strategies, hypnotherapy, Byron Katie's Inquiry ("The Work"), the Mastery Forgiveness Process and Michael Mirdad's Healing/Forgiveness Process, as well as transformational bodywork. Mira also borrows techniques from bioenergetics and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Mira's approach is eclectic and intuitive, choosing the right tool for each individual situation.
Mira is an ordained minister of the Foundation for Christ Consciousness, a Certified Hypnotherapist and a Licensed Massage Therapist. She is author of the book, "Healing Loss: Choose Love Now," and her articles "Forgiveness 101," "Interview with the Ego," and "A Course in Miracles and Mother Teresa" have been featured in Miracles magazine.
