Meet Doria Miller, LCSW

Welcome! I am passionate about helping people to lead their most fulfilling and authentic lives, so I am excited that you are here and looking for a way to change. Read more about my style and approach to therapy below.

New to Therapy?

Stigma says that people who go to therapy have problems. The reality is everyone has problems—people who come to therapy are just brave enough to ask for help in moving through them. If you know what you want help with, then I can guide you through the process. Building a strong relationship, with a heavy focus on trust and compassion, is crucial to successful therapy. Research shows that the best predictors of whether or not therapy will be effective is based on our relationship and on your attitude about therapy. We will work together using our relationship and a combination of evidence-based treatment methods to help you to move forward in your life in the way that is right for you.

My philosophy on therapy is based on the power of introspection, understanding our relationships with others, and the knowledge that we all have the capacity to make changes in our lives.

My belief is that my role as a therapist is to help you explore yourself in the setting of a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment. I will help you understand yourself better in the context of all of your relationships both past and present, and we will work together to help you make the changes you seek in life. Most importantly, I want to help you find a sense of peace in becoming your most authentic self. I decided to become a therapist in large part because therapy has made such a profound difference in my life, and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to pay that forward to you.

If you are looking for someone who wants to work with you and not just someone who will listen and nod, then I would love to hear from you!
