About Me

Hello!

Welcome to my page. Congrats on taking this step to explore counseling for your emotional well being! My name is Kellie Miller and I was born and raised in the great state of Maine. I continue to live in the northern part of our state, where I am fully licensed. In 2007, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of New England. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) . I have over 14 years of clinical counseling experience both in an outpatient private practice setting and through tele-health.

As a therapist, it is such an honor and privilege to join people on their individual journeys back to themselves. I believe the most important aspect to positive therapeutic outcomes for people is a healthy and warm alliance with their therapist. I put an emphasis on earning trust in order to develop a strong working rapport. My approach is authentic, welcoming, compassionate, empathetic, laid back, and non-judgmental. I am even known to have a sense of humor at times.

You know yourself best and my primary role is to provide a safe space for you in your personal journey to wellness. This is achieved through building on your strengths; understanding your individual goals; providing relevant resources and education as needed; and using evidenced based clinical approaches.

I pull from a variety of evidenced based clinical approaches using the mind, body, and spirt to help with your goal achievement including:

Person Centered
Psychodynamic approaches
Polyvagal Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
Solution Focused
Motivational Interviewing
Narrative
Self Compassion mindfulness and skills training
Internal Family Systems
EMDR

I have experience working with a diversity ages, populations, and issues including:
Adjustment issues
Phase of life transitions
Trauma
Grief and Loss
Dissociation
Depression
Bipolar Disorder
Anxiety/Stress
Phobias
OCD
LGBTQ
Healing from break-ups, separation, or divorce
Sleep disturbances
Self confidence/self worth/self esteem

I am available to schedule live video sessions, phone, or live chat through BetterHelp. I check my messages at least twice daily and make every effort to respond within 24 hours.

Best wishes to you on your wellness journey!
Kellie

I found Kellie to be the most helpful counselor I've had. She listens and is action oriented! I felt supported and she checked in on me mid week to see how my progress was going weekly!

I haven't met with Kellie yet, but already, she's made me feel incredibly supported. She checks in with me frequently, which I've never experienced before. I've been dealing with a lot of particular anxiety lately, which usually makes me feel so alone, but Kellie has already made me feel like there's always someone there when I need support. She's so perceptive and really conveys that she's listening to you and that she wants to be there for you. I can't express how happy I am to have access to her expertise and this platform.
