Eda Flores-Miranda, MSW, LCSW
Years at IWU: 4 years
Areas of focus: Trauma and dissociation, as well as depression, anxiety, low motivation, substance
abuse, and general problem-solving.
Interests: I am a big Eeyore fan so I collect Eeyores; my personal office has a lot of them :-)
I also have an interest in origami/3D origami.
Personal motto: I like to be present and accepting without judgment, clarify as much as needed to
better understand and work with someone, and respectfully challenge them as needed.
I also like to normalize our responses to events in our lives or our perceptions of
future, because I see it as a "normal" response to abnormal situations.
Most rewarding part of counseling: Being present when someone has the moment of understanding - that "aha" moment - on
their journey to individuation/growth. It makes me feel that one person can make a
difference in the world.
