Matt Miller, LPC-S
MY MISSION: I work to help others grow and develop their most important relationships e.g. God, family, self, and others through healing.
MY FOCUS: “Every problem is a relationship problem.” (Dean Sherman) Understanding this concept drives my treatment focus with everyone who comes to see me. When relationships are working well, people are able to get their needs met, and facilitate meeting needs of others.
MY EXPERIENCE: Prior to working as a Professional Counselor (LPC) I taught bilingual (Spanish) third grade for nine years and worked as a school counselor for four. Since leaving Public Education, I have worked in community mental health, psychiatric hospitals, and other mental health venues. I maintain privileges at a psychiatric hospital.
MY TECHNIQUE: “Wholeness is brokenness owned, and thereby healed.” (Sister Barbara Fiand) My primary means of working with people is in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). My main goal in this is for clients to be safe and connected to me in session so emotional states are accessed fully, especially the difficult ones, and processed to the point of resolution. Other techniques I use but are not limited to include: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family systems, and Theophostic type prayer.
ABOUT ME: I am a very happy and content single man who participates in a variety of activities some charitable and counseling related others are just fun and not counseling related.
EDUCATION/CREDENTIALS: I earned my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Findlay (Ohio) in 1986, my M.Ed. in Counseling in 1994 from Prairie View A&M University. I was fully licensed as a Professional Counselor in 1998 and certified as a Supervisor in 2008.
AREAS OF SPECIALTY: I treat people from eight years old and above for a variety of disorders and difficulties. Although I am not exclusive in my interests, I enjoy working with men (adolescents and adults) on issues specific to them. Such issues may include unresolved problems with father/mother, sexual addictions, unwanted same sex attraction, and male survivors of sexual abuse.
