About Me

I am a wilderness and adventure-loving mountain enthusiast living in Montana and have over 20 years of experience as a therapist and life coach.
In my work I model a way of being in life that serves to strengthen my clients’ resolve, grit, determination, self-belief, compassion, autonomy, belonging, and sense of curiosity. I approach therapy and coaching from a space of openness and intentionality, with a team orientation. Working together, we are partners in shifting your perspective and behavior so you can feel more vibrant and motivated in your life!

Every individual’s experience varies, and it’s the complexity of our lives that brings hope for rebuilding. My work combines family system’s theory with cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy with mindfulness and embodiment work, a feminist lens with shame resilience theory. I am highly skilled in the areas of eating psychology, body image, and disordered behaviors with food. I’ve been professionally trained not just as a therapist but also as a coach and have worked with many athletes who want to learn how to develop a more trusting relationship with food and their bodies. I'm trained as a mindfulness meditation instructor and utilize mindfulness principles extensively in my work. I view everyone as inherently healthy and capable of change. I utilize a positive psychology and motivational interviewing framework to focus on your capacities and strengths to help you build more skillful ways of interacting with yourself, with others, with your emotions, and your mind! It's so easy to begin feeling stuck, but understanding how we get there is the first step! Self-understanding and self-discovery serve as the foundations for change!

As Walt Whitman shared, “Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.” As humans and as healers, we need these multitudes, in addition to the permission to live our questions. Rilke provides another guiding principle for me in this quote, “…have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

I look forward to exploring your questions with you and developing solutions for more empowered living!

Dr. Kori is a compassionate, thoughtful and relatable therapist. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with disordered eating, body image issues, etc. She has been a huge help to me.

Absolutely incredible
So grateful I was paired with Dr. Propst! Thrilled about my current experience with BetterHelp which is directly related to my sessions with Kori.

My very first message from Dr. Propst Miller was like a life preserver. I was sinking in the mire of my own anxiety and she immediately reminded me of the power of positive thinking and help guide me to a more purposeful path. She is an active listener who is able to share her expertise and insight in the most personable way, and I am learning and thinking without feeling "taught." I know I have a lot of work ahead of me, and there's good days and not so good days, but it is encouraging to know that I have Dr. Propst Miller's support and compassion along the way!
