Post graduate employment and internships combined have provided me with approximately eighteen years of counseling and supervisory experience, six years of which in clinical administrative, eight years of clinical service provision, and ten years of experience as a human services instructor on the undergraduate and graduate level. I am dually licensed in North Carolina LPC (#3901) since 2001 and in Georgia (#5128) since 2007 as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am licensed as a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (#3217) effective 2018.
Experience has provided me with the opportunity to work with individuals, groups, and families with a variety of emotional, behavioral, and physical needs in state mental health, private, and non-profit settings. Populations served include children, adolescents, and adults, crisis intervention, clinical assessment/diagnostic services, substance use disorders, inpatient and outpatient settings, short and long-term therapy, and administrative experience as clinical supervisor for substance abuse, mental health, and developmental disabilities.
My personal philosophy is that both the counseling and client experience should be unique to each individual. The theoretical orientation that I draw most from during intervention is the cognitive-behavioral approach. The client works together with the counselor to bring about the achievement of positive and productive life goals established by the consumer. Techniques may include charting emotions and behaviors, exploring past and present patterned behaviors, and homework to put into practice alternative behaviors discussed in sessions outside of the therapeutic environment. Commitment to participation and a desire to actively work toward positive change and personal resilience comprise two of the most important elements that the client brings to the counseling process.

Dr. Miller has been such a big help to me in managing anxiety and stress, healing from religious trauma, and understanding myself better. She’s given me many tools that have really improved my day to day.
I have enjoyed my sessions with Dr. Miller. She is easy to talk to and I find myself opening up on topics I didn't know I needed to discuss. In sessions I don't have a specific concern, she provides suggestions for me to be reflective on how I have felt in past situations of stress, trauma, joy so that I can manage future events even better. She is quick to share suggestions, resources, and anecdotes for coping and reflection. Would recommend to a friend.
Dr. Miller is extremely kind and understanding! She has a way of knowing what I’m thinking based on our conversations without me actually having to say it. She offers plenty of tools and options for completing activities that help to address some of the issues I experience. I have enjoyed my sessions with Dr. Miller and look forward to continuing to work with her!
Dr. Miller is an excellent counselor. She listens intently and truly cares. She gives great insight to issues and concerns as well as tools to handle situations. Highly recommend.
Though we’re just getting started with the process, Dr. Miller has really helped me get in touch with my problems right away. She’s a great listener and has a way of summing up what she’s hearing that puts it in perspective. So far, so good.
