Hello and welcome! I first want to acknowledge how hard it can be to reach out for help and support — you are brave for even looking into and thinking about seeking help. I truly believe in each and every person’s capacity for growth. I believe that the world we live in often makes it difficult for us to be authentic and to move towards the things that are important to us. In the development of who we are and who we want to be, sometimes we have to face uncomfortable things. I’m passionate about helping people face these obstacles with self-compassion and grace for the purpose of living a fuller and more meaningful life - whatever that means to you.
I completed my Masters in Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling as well as my Educational Specialist degree at Clemson University in 2018. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of South Carolina and Ohio. I've been working in partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care for the past 3 years of my counseling career, focusing on helping those struggling with eating disorders. Of course very few struggles exist in a vacuum, so in my time working primarily with eating disorders, I also have gained experience in working with clients struggling in a multitude of areas, including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, relationship conflict, LGBTQ+ issues, life transitions, body image struggles, and self-compassion. I practice from a client-centered, narrative approach to therapy, meaning that I believe you are the expert in your own story. We all have stories that make up who we are. Although all of our stories are valid and have come about for a reason, they are not always truthful or helpful to us. I love helping people re-write or re-frame their stories to help them live fuller, happier lives. In addition, I'm well-versed in a variety of therapeutic modalities that I incorporate into working with clients, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Family Therapy. This variety of modalities provides us with a massive toolbox of skills I can guide you in learning and applying to the challenges you are facing.
On a personal note, I love all things nature, animals (especially my own cat and two dogs), and arts/crafts. From my own experiences with therapy, I have come to deeply believe in and value this type of relationship and personal growth. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Emily Miller. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I have never been in counseling before, so this has been a very new experience for me, Emily Miller is super nice and makes me feel comfortable in the space we created. Our sessions are only an hour, but within that hour I can definitely be myself around her.
