About the Author

My name is Miranda De Jesus (Byers) and I recently graduated with my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and I am now currently pursuing my Master’s in mental health counseling. I have been working as a full time crisis intervention specialist for over a year now where I provide emotional support and resources to those struggling with suicidal ideation, depression, grief, sexual assault, domestic violence, addiction issues, and sexuality concerns.

Throughout my life, I have experienced every single concern that I help others with on a daily basis and have made a point to value the art of empathy and listening to others in emotional or physical pain. Based on my life history, the amount of emotional pain I’ve experienced has given me amazing insight and passion to give support and understanding to those in need because it’s something I was once deprived of. It is so important to be heard and loved in difficult times and I will share some of the lessons learned through experience and education to help my readers better understand their psychology and how to heal.

Thank you so much for checking out my page. I’m doing this for my readers, I value and love each and every one of you and I hope my words and experiences help give you the support and understanding you deserve. You are not alone.
