Carolyn Miller, LICSW
In her own words…
Often life’s stressors lead to a sense of disconnection and isolation, whether you’ve faced trauma, loss, unexpected changes, or the constant demands of daily life that women carry. I offer a warm and open environment to reduce isolation and to allow space for self-reflection. This space can help you identify adaptive skills for coping with the present concerns that bring you to therapy, while also deepening your understanding of yourself, your families and relationships, and your experiences in a way that leads to lasting growth.
I understand that the joy of parenting exists alongside a range of emotions that are worthy of attention and understanding. Together, we can work to process challenges, understand related emotions, gain insight into our patterns and relationships, and create meaningful change.
I especially enjoy working with students, and through my work in college counseling, I understand the pressures that college women face. It is important to know that you are not alone, healing is possible, and therapy can provide space for both help and healing.
