Andrew Miller, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

My practice is based on two principles: helping my clients bear their stressors more adaptively with new skills and assisting them in tolerating and building a new relationship to the underlying emotions that cause the anxiety, depression, pain and poor interactions with others that plague their lives.

The work is simple, to help my clients bear their emotions as simply and deeply as possible in any given moment.  For when we can, symptoms of anxiety, depression, chronic pain and unsatisfying interactions with those we love and even strangers melt away.  Simply put, I help my clients not fear their feelings.  This does not guarantee happiness for that's just one amongst many feelings, but what it can do is provide a freedom to move, a freedom to think and a freedom to feel while not being boxed in by their symptoms.

I am a trauma specialist with a focus on: Eating Disorders, Sex Addiction, Substance abuse and chronic pain/psychophysiologic disorders.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A form of talk therapy that trains clients to recognize patterns of unproductive thinking and learn healthier responses to challenging situations.

Brainspotting: Is a deep-brain sensory therapy designed to help clients process trauma and alleviate both emotional and physical pain.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): Is a therapeutic technique specific to the treatment of trauma and PTSD in which clients recall their traumatic experiences while their therapist directs their sensory attention elsewhere.

Psychodynamic Therapy: A clinical approach that aims to promote self-awareness and insights by assessing how previous experiences have influenced current and ongoing behaviors. In this process clients gain perspective into behaviors and relationship issues that they may have not been fully cognizant of.

Trauma Resiliency Model: In this treatment module, trauma is approached in a somatic fashion based on its lasting legacy within the human body. Clients are directed to build resiliency towards the lasting effects of trauma in the body, interpersonally and psycho-socially.

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy: AEDT is a therapeutic approach designed to help clients process challenging traumas and create new healing experiences, all while building emotional resilience.
