by Dr. Deborah S. Miller, Ed.D.
I insure a caring, safe and professional atmosphere. Individual, couple, and family sessions focus on present day concerns while acknowledging the importance of the past. Through a strong counselor / client partnership, change occurs.
Therapy requires your very active involvement and honesty. Change will sometimes be easy, but more often it will be slow and even frustrating. I primarily utilize Gestalt Therapy, a humanistic approach that emphasizes awareness in the here-and-now. I integrate a psycho-educational approach, utilizes some cognitive-behavioural methods and family/systemic therapy. The key to successful counseling is the working relationship you have with me.
