Michelle Miranda

Welcome to Crescent Moon Psychiatry! My name is Michelle Miranda and I am a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. It has always been my goal to care for others, and I have found that psychiatry allows me to truly understand another person, thus allowing me to provide a holistic level of care. I obtained my Master's level nursing degree and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner license in 2014. Since then, I have had the unique experiences of working at a psychiatric emergency department, an inpatient psychiatric hospital setting, and an intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment program. This has provided me with experience in treating an array of mental health needs and treatment modalities.

In my practice, I view medication as only one of the many tools to helping improve your mental health. My goal is to work with you and to understand your needs, while encouraging you to advocate for yourself in all areas of treatment. I follow evidence-based recommendations, and always encourage engagement in ongoing therapy in combination with any medication routine we may decide upon. 

I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, but the mountains have always called to me. I relocated to Colorado in 2016 and haven't looked back. When I'm not working, I enjoy playing with my dogs, staying active, reading, cooking, camping, and enjoying the beauty of Colorado!
