Hello! My name is Marie Miller. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker living in the Central Highlands of Maine. I have been a social worker for almost 22 years, and a clinician for 3.5 of those years. During my time as a social worker, I have experienced many ages and settings, including medical social work, retirement communities, protective case work with children, domestic violence, and most recently have worked in a rural community with school children and families. I utilize a strengths and system based perspective in my practice, as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have experience and training in working with trauma and domestic violence. I also use Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy as appropriate. It is important to me to build a connection with my clients in order to best serve them throughout our time together. I believe that trust is essential to facilitate a strong therapeutic relationship.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, baking, and enjoying the great outdoors of Maine. I have lived in this state for the past 6 years, and have yet to tire of the natural beauty and resources we have. I also love to pet my 7 year old black Lab or take her walking or swimming. I believe that self care is important, and you are taking a huge step in caring for yourself by signing up for BetterHelp counseling. I have the most experience working with clients on depression, anxiety, self esteem, LGBTQ related concerns, overall stress, and unhealthy vs. healthy relationships. I am open, compassionate, and accepting.
If we are matched for counseling, you can expect honest and direct communication, empathy, and a genuine desire to address your concerns. I also work full time as a school social worker, so I have evening and Saturday availability, as well as some flexibility during days school is not in session. I believe that every communication should be at least acknowledged as quickly as possible, and you can expect continuing transparency in all my association as your counselor. I look forward to working with you!

Marie knows how to listen to me. I feel that I am seen by her. I've been able to talk to her about things that I've never told anyone else and that has helped my emotional growth immensely.

Marie is sensitive and knowledgeable. I am glad I found her right now when I need so much to have someone understand me. I highly recommend Marie, but also BetterHelp.com because it took me a few tries to find the right person but they made it easy to change.
