Emily Miller, LMHC views therapy as a collaborative and transformative process. She specializes in working with adolescents, young adults, and families who are navigating the messy and overwhelming worlds of depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, life transitions and relationship issues. It’s in the midst of these struggles that Emily believes clients have the best opportunity to find out who they truly are, what they value most and the type of people they eventually want to become. Emily aims to provide an environment that is both supportive and challenging – where clients feel known and understood, while still feeling pushed to find new ways of viewing problems and healthier ways of coping.
Emily received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Vanderbilt University, studying Human Development, Child Development, & Counseling. She has worked with a diverse group of clients in outpatient clinical settings, school and college settings, and in her own private practice. Emily developed and facilitated an Intensive Outpatient Program for adolescents diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Passionate about providing treatment that is both client-centered and effective, Emily integrates a variety of approaches with clients and their families. These treatments include Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, DBT, CBT, Solution-Focused, Emotion-Focused, Narrative and Art-based strategies.
Originally from Atlanta, by way of Nashville and a stop in Minneapolis, Emily is a New England transplant. In addition to her eight years of professional experience as a counselor, she spent four years in the music industry and as a professional photographer. These varied life experiences bring a unique and creative perspective to her work.
