“I recognize that it can takes a lot of courage for many people to reach out to seek help. I respect each person and their personal journey that leads them to seeking my support and assistance. I tailor my interventions to the goals, challenges, culture, age, developmental level, personality and interests of each patient. “
“I take a non-judgmental approach to people, which enables my patients to trust me with their deepest experiences. Therapeutic bonds form easily and naturally, and we are able to explore many areas of a person’s past and present. We work on getting to the root of dysfunctional behavior, and I am able to assist in propelling individuals to move forward to achieving their therapeutic goals and ambitions in life.”

“Dr. Miller has an extensive knowledge of so many areas of psychology. Her diverse experience provides her with the ability to connect with patients of all ages and backgrounds. She truly invests in each patient, with her attention to detail, making them feel like her top priority. Dr. Miller was able to identify the triggers behind the behaviors my son was exhibiting and ultimately determine the correct diagnosis for him, that no other psychologists had been able to do. She went above and beyond, by recommending future steps to be initiated in his school and outside of his school. She was thorough, patient, and caring every step of the way.”T.H.
