Learn about Miranda Nadeau PhD (she/her), Licensed Psychologist & owner of Panorama Therapy

I am a deeply engaged licensed psychologist serving adults, couples, and groups, and I’m passionate about helping people tap into their strengths to craft a life worth celebrating.

I already know you are worthy of a life full of joy. You are innately deserving of love and compassion, though you may have been told that you aren’t enough. Just as a modest acorn contains all it needs to become a hearty oak tree, all you need to deepen self-awareness and grow as a person and a partner is already within you. My specialties include LGBTQ+ affirming therapy and counseling for multiracial & Mixed race folks, focused on your relationships with others and with yourself. I’m excited to learn more about you.

I am a Licensed Psychologist in the states of Texas (License #38521) and New Jersey (License #35SI00684000). I earned my doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) in Counseling Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. As an E.Passport PSYPACT psychologist, I am privileged to work with clients in 32 states across the U.S. I completed my doctoral internship at the Texas A&M University Student Counseling Service. Previously, I received a master’s degree from UT Austin and received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Rice University. These days I am unlearning and decolonizing my mind & body of knowledge so I can really meet you where you are.

I’ve pursued specialized training in several therapies, including experiential, somatic approaches; acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT); dialectical behavior therapy (DBT); trauma-informed care; Internal Family Systems (IFS); Buddhism-informed approaches to psychotherapy; advanced couples therapy; and psychedelic-assisted therapy (specifically the MAPS MDMA protocol). In my work with clients, I blend these therapies together with a client-centered, relational cultural, and feminist approach, customizing the treatment for each new client I sit down with.

 

LGBTQ+ therapy

Counseling offices are not always safe or accessible for queer and trans folks. As a queer, cisgender, pansexual/lesbian psychologist, I am on a mission to make psychotherapy accessible, safe, and affirming for all. In my work with LGBTQ+ clients across 32 states, I am committed to creating a comfortable environment in which all of your intersecting identities are honored and appreciated, no lengthy explanations necessary. I am also a signer of the Gender Affirming Letter Access Project (GALAP) pledge. Read more about this commitment and specialized work on the Panorama Therapy Services page.

 

Research-based practice

I pursued a Ph.D. because I wanted to understand the why behind every intervention—why does this work and that doesn’t? What does the scientific process have to say about how we heal? My therapy practice is informed by my experience poring over existing research and leading my own research endeavors. I have published numerous peer-reviewed research articles, presented at national psychology conferences, and continue to serve as an ad hoc reviewer for research journals. I am a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi and a former Fellow of the William C. Powers Graduate Fellowship. In the past I have collaborated with researchers at UT, Rice University, University of Houston, the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, and beyond.

My multicultural, feminist approach is informed by my own life experience growing up as a queer, multiracial woman of color in a bicultural, immigrant household. I spent much of my childhood traveling and living abroad, which has both informed my work and left me with the insatiable desire to wander. I love immersing myself in the richly varied cultures of our world. I practice anti-racism and I stand with Black Lives Matter. I learned early on that our diverse identities, upbringings, languages, traditions, ancestry, and heredity can have a profound impact, and I consider a client’s legacy, life, and intersecting identities when exploring issues and approaches for change. When I am not with clients, I can be found crafting, playing nerdy board games, tending to my plants (the love is real), or plotting my next international adventure. I am so honored to serve all of the clients I do across 32 states nationwide.
