Dr. Miles has helped me reflect on my relationships and how I see myself. She is an excellent listener and makes me comfortable to share any issues that I have.

Dr Miles is wonderful. She is very hands on and I like that. I dont want to do all of the talking. And I want to hear the truth. She tells me straight on and I appreciate that. She also reads my journal entries and responds and that has been extremely helpful.
