Prior to graduate school, Ms. Miller earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at George Washington University, in Washington, DC. During that time, Ms. Miller worked with children involved in the criminal justice system, teen parents, and children with developmental disabilities.
Ms. Miller works with a diverse population and treats a wide range of presenting problems including depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues. While most clients are seen in individual therapy, during her training she has had a particular emphasis on treating children and providing parent training and behavioral therapy. She has a particular interest in children and adolescents and improving coping skills and emotion regulation. Her therapy approach is eclectic, using techniques and interventions from cognitive behavioral therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy, among others. She feels that therapy is most effective when treatment is tailored to the unique needs of each individual.
Due to her extensive training with children, adolescents, and families, she is able to work from a systems approach, while providing practical skills for parents and their children to promote success as individuals, and as well as in their relationships. She has specific training in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy and parent training. Her doctoral project was the development of a treatment manual, “Stage Two Adolescent Recovery Program.” This manual followed the guidelines for stage two of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, which focuses on skill building, emotion regulation, parent training, and treatment of past trauma.
Ms. Miller pursued a career as a psychologist after witnessing the resilience of the individuals she interacted with during her undergraduate career. She takes care to collaborate with each patient as they work towards reaching their therapeutic goals and improving their quality of life in a safe, validating environment.
