Clair Miller | LPC
I have experience working with children, teens, and young adults dealing with everything from anxiety and relationship issues to trauma and sexual abuse. It would be a privilege to work with you or your child towards healing, tailoring the counseling process to best fit your needs.
As an Individual…
Maybe your anxiety is becoming too difficult to manage. Maybe your relationships aren’t working. Maybe you feel lost, or stuck, or maybe you feel like you just can’t move beyond that one thing from your past that keeps bubbling up.
From a primarily person-centered and psychodynamic approach, we will work together to reach a place of healing, taking a deeper look at your struggles, your values, and your goals.
For Kids and Teens…
Being a kid or a teen in today’s world can be scary. Navigating family life, school responsibilities, extra-curricular activities, social relationships, and their own personal growth, exploration, and development… that’s a lot of work by anyone’s standards! As they live out their formative years, they may encounter something that feels too difficult. They may not know what it is, or they may not be able to name it, but there are often deeper issues hidden behind the behavior.
Young adulthood is a time that can be uniquely fun and exciting as you explore your identity and set a trajectory for the future. But facing all of the transitions that come in life can offer a unique set of challenges. You’ve got a lot on your plate. It can feel scary and lonely, but it doesn’t have to stay that way.
From a primarily person-centered approach and play-based approach, I work with children and teenagers to explore their challenges, whether they involve anxiety, emotional regulation, social skills, etc., within the context of a safe, consistent, and trusting relationship.

The term codependency and the concepts behind it have gained momentum in the fields of self-help and psychology over the past couple of decades. And while it is now a pretty steady part of the vernacular, “codependent” still feels a bit ambiguous. When someone says...
I cannot tell you how many times someone has said to me, often through tears, “I shouldn’t be so upset about this, it’s not that big of a deal” or “It’s been months, this should not still be bothering me”. “It was a long time ago” or “we weren’t that close” or, and...
