I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 21 years working with individuals, couples, families and adolescents. I began my career working with high school students in a church setting which I enjoyed, but realized that young people needed so much more for their social and emotional well-being than I knew at that time. During the years, I discovered the power of family dynamics in the mental health of children and adults. This led me to pursue my Master's in Social Work from Aurora University in Illinois and become licensed in Illinois,. I am also licensed in Montana where I lived and worked on the Blackfeet Reservation in a small school and now in Indiana where I currently reside.
I have experience with people who have depression, anxiety, PTSD and grief issues. I have also done therapy with survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and have experienced other trauma in their lives. I have a therapy style that draws on several therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Therapies. I believe that holistic approaches that acknowledge the mind, body and spirit connection can be very effective with people who are dealing with today's fast paced lives that often lead to stress related problems.
Finding balance as we go through life transitions can come by attending to our mental and physical health on a daily basis. I enjoy working with people who are actively engaged in their own health and well-being and have been told that I connect well with people of all ages. I am eager to help you work towards health and balance in your life.

Over the last 9 months Mary has helped me gain perspective and understanding. Her kind and guiding words have helped me toward being the mother I'd hoped I would be. She's down to earth and easy to talk to.

I have enjoyed working with Mary so far. She is kind, a good listener, and validates me when I'm being hard on myself. I think that Mary has a good mixture of being personal and professional. She asks me questions, and helps me explore what I'm dealing with so that I can figure out next steps.

Mary is compassionate and practical. She is efficient and has many tools to share to help me process different situations. She listens well and understands the root of what to start on and I appreciate that so much!

Mary is very personable and a great listener! She is funny and has a great sense of humor. I’m a pastor, and having someone who has been through many of the same experiences I have really helps me feel seen and understood.

Mary Miller is by far the best, most understanding, attentive and compassionate therapist I have ever had. I question if I would even be alive if not for her.
