What Dr. Michelle Miller’s Clients are Saying…

Thom

“It takes a lot for me to be open and honest about my inner life. Especially on the internet, in plain view of everyone. But Michelle Miller makes me want to. I’m not sure how to adequately or concisely state how much she was able to help me. To be brief: I came to her one person, and I left someone else. Make that, a better version of myself. Someone much more in touch with the divergent aspects of himself than I ever thought possible. Michelle at various times acted as therapist, as hypnotist, as life coach, and as creative spark. It would be possible to see Michelle for years and not even begin to scratch the surface of what she is capable of revealing in you. I know that was my experience.”

“Michelle is extraordinary. She takes an individual approach with each patient, honoring their journey. She's knows when to push and when to stay back and allow you to naturally unfurl. Trauma resolution is her forte. I highly-recommend anyone with trauma in their past to work with her. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She has worked miracles in my life.

"I don't have the words to define the excellent work you have done. All I would say is that your way and techniques are full of magic. I used to have the worst migraines before my treatment with you. After the first session of EMDR, I haven't had any headaches since then. I can't express my feelings with the way you helped me."

"When I first went to See Michelle I felt like I was in a dark hole with no way out, too feeble to take control of my emotions and my life. After just a few sessions with Dr. Miller, I started to feel a shift. My issues were put into a new perspective and I was able to take the necessary actions to improve my situation."

~Female Client, Age 30

Female Client, Age 40

“I came to Michelle in a state of very high anxiety and even some depression over 1 year ago.  I had been in therapy with different doctors for the past 15 years and was tired of the same approach. Michelle is innovative! It’s not just a talk therapy session every week. It’s interactive. It’s grounding. It’s modern. And she is compassionate and a true professional. When I am bawling my eyes out or super stressed, I know I can count on our session to reset. I always hang up with her knowing there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and that my sessions are valuable. I feel like I am transforming like never before and that I am finally getting what I needed for so many years. Thank you Michelle!”

~Female Client, Age 40

Male Client, Age 31

“Michelle Miller is a special therapist. I’m so grateful to have found her. One step at a time, she’s help me turn my life around. I look forward to each session and always feel lighter and more balanced after my time with her. She has this incredible ability to make me feel like I am in a safe, open, comfortable space for sharing. She asks all the right questions and professionally guides me towards the source of my issues. I’m amazed at her gift for taking me where I am at – whether a deep mental health issue or a specific event over the last week, Michelle creates an open, healthy space for anything I might be dealing with. Light is at the end of the tunnel and Michelle can help take you there.

"...By working with Michelle, I feel that I have made strides towards bettering my quality of life, coming closer to knowing myself well, and figuring out how much further I have to go to be the most/best me. Michelle is flexible with her scheduling when necessary, and she makes our time together each week a valuable priority that I wouldn’t miss for nearly anything. I’m truly lucky to benefit from her work."

"I just wanted to reiterate how incredible this process has been so far. You are unlike any other therapist in that you really make me feel healed. I leave each session, understanding that things can be hard but that there can be a sort of peace underlying it all. I'm incredibly grateful for having found you and for all that you have helped me with."

~Female Client, Age 28

I can honestly say that I have made more progress in the last few months than in all of my 16 years seeing traditional psychiatrists and psychologists. I feel like I’ve finally been freed from an inner prison. Michelle has literally changed my life.

Female Client, Age 30

“Dr. Miller is an extraordinary therapist.

Our sessions have become a space to open up and experience my emotions, and then take a step further to understand where they are coming from–which may be as far back as childhood– and how I want them to have a place in my life going forward. She has helped me to begin to deal with extreme anxiety that has prevented me from creative pursuits for years. A big part of my progress with Dr. Miller has been attending to how my thoughts and emotions affect me physically.

Since my sessions began about 6 months ago, my mind is clearer, I am more connected to myself and what matters to me, more confident in my decision-making, and I’ve noticed I am even clearer with how I express myself. She has helped me begin to change how I exist in the world in my day-to-day.

She truly is a healer in every sense of the word.”

Female Client, Age 36

“I wholeheartedly recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for a deep transformative experience.

Before meeting Michelle, I looked for help from traditional psychotherapists, but I always felt that something was missing, I was yearning for more depth and meaning.

I was going through a very painful time in my life ending a 5 year relationship when I started working with Michelle. I did not know it at the time, but I was also going through a spiritual transformation.

I have always been an intuitive person, but through safely exploring my childhood wounds, fears and negative beliefs, I kept shedding layers of stagnant energy I had been accumulating through the years. I am gradually becoming the person I was always meant to be: happy, radiant, loving, compassionate. Thank you Michelle.”

Female Client, Age 32   

“Michelle makes her work accessible and understandable to someone like me, who is resistant to all things emotional or abstract (or worse yet–both). She uses her spot-on instinct to develop multi-step strategies, which she then executes consistently and reliably. By working with Michelle, I feel that I have made strides towards bettering my quality of life, coming closer to knowing myself well, and figuring out how much further I have to go to be the most/best me. Michelle is flexible with her scheduling when necessary, and she makes our time together each week a valuable priority that I wouldn’t miss for nearly anything.

Female Client, Age 40  

“I came to Michelle in a state of very high anxiety and even some depression over 1 year ago. When I was looking for a new therapist, I knew I wanted someone who would get my spiritual approach to things. I wanted someone who was a bit “alternative”, who could make recommendations that I had never gotten. I had been in therapy with different doctors for the past 15 years and was tired of the same approach. Michelle is innovative! It’s not just a talk therapy session every week. It’s interactive. It’s grounding. It’s modern. And she is compassionate and a true professional. When I am bawling my eyes out or super stressed, I know I can count on our session to reset.

Male Client, Age 32   

“I found Michelle at an extremely low point in my life. I was deeply depressed, with low to no self-esteem and was fighting an addiction to alcohol fueled by a painful past of childhood abuse. Michelle is extraordinary. She takes an individual approach with each patient, honoring their journey. She’s knows when to push and when to stay back and allow you to naturally unfurl. Trauma resolution is her forte. I highly-recommend anyone with trauma in their past to work with her. Many times, when we are left on our own without a guide to walk us through, we think we’ve resolved things…only to realize that we’ve only buried them all the more deeply. Her use of EMDR was particularly powerful for me, but is only one of many tools she incorporates into sessions. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She has worked miracles in my life.”

Female Client, Age 25

“Dr. Miller is a light worker. A healer. A transformational life coach. I was in a deep state of depression and anxiety when I came to her only 1 year ago. She fostered the exploration inside myself that needed love and healing above all, and allowed me to explore my own true potential by releasing the pain of the past. Dr. Miller is nurturing yet pushes you when you need it, and can guide you through breakthroughs no matter how deep and painful it may feel. Her work is seriously transformational and it has changed my life above all. I’ve tapped into parts of myself I didn’t know existed and continue to release my emotional pain, patterns and behaviors. I will always go to Dr. Miller!”

Female Client, Age 36        

“I started seeing Dr. Michelle Miller on a weekly basis just a few months ago. I can honestly say that I have made more progress in the last few months than in all of my 16 years seeing traditional psychiatrists and psychologists. In the past I have been diagnosed and put on many different medications for depression, general anxiety disorder, ADD, bipolar disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. Hours upon hours of therapy and coctails of medication were not reaching my deep underlying issues. I was so desperate to feel better and to feel peace within my soul that I bought all sorts of self help books, tried going to church even calling psychics and meeting with clergymen. Still, nothing substantial had shifted within me… In fact with each passing year, I grew more and more hopeless and started to finally accept the possibility that I will never have peace of mind or true happiness and that my real pain will never be lifted…. Then, I met Michelle. By my fifth or sixth appointment some of my deepest fears and most painful memories have already come to the surface to be healed……. I feel like I’ve finally been freed from an inner prison. There has been a tremendous shift within me. I feel peaceful. I feel more empowered. I finally know that I am ok. I am safe. I am being heard… Not only do I feel better but the people closest to me tell me how much different I have become. I’m so very grateful to find a therapist who got to the root of the issues I struggle with. Michelle has literally changed my life.”

Female Client, Age 26

“Dearest Michelle,
I have seen 9 therapists prior to meeting you, for an average of either 2-3 therapy appointments per week consistently for the past 9 years. Therapy just felt like an endless process through a really deep dark tunnel with no end in sight. I brought up over 6 years ago to my old therapists that I thought I had the diagnosis of DID. I self-diagnosed myself, but all of my therapists didn’t agree/believe me and gave me a list of reasons why they felt I didn’t have the diagnosis (which I never wanted in the first place and wanted sooo badly to believe them that I didn’t have DID!) The symptoms were consistent for way too long, were not going away, and many things were getting worse despite exposure, relaxation exercises, and practicing grounding skills. When I came to you, you validated my experiences, believed me and every symptom that I felt that I had, as well as diagnosed me with DID. Thus, you were able to treat me properly by addressing all of the voices in my head, by allowing whoever needed to come out to come out and talk to you. I know that since I started working with you, everything has shifted and changed. I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel – I truly feel like I am started to heal from so many different traumas that happened to me as a child. I have dissociated so many times by all of my other therapists, and my sense from all of my therapists was that dissociating is something to be avoided and to “fight off” by working super hard to stay grounded. I really tried, and learned somewhat to stay present, but would leave therapy feeling worse than when I walked in, to the point where at times I felt like I had some symptoms like autism or other odd symptoms, such as paralysis/lack of awareness in my legs. You allow me to dissociate by helping me in the process (GGS – gently, gradually, safely), but without triggering me, and I always feel better when I “come back” and have learned to just be an “observer” to whomever needs to talk and am slowly learning to accept everyone at the level where they are at. I look forward every week to our sessions, to a time where I won’t be triggered, can unload onto you all of my complaints and concerns, and have a temporary reprieve from the world that feels like “one big hurt.” You have given me the tools and skills to leave a toxic environment, as well as to leave multiple toxic relationships. I did not think the skype sessions would work well or work at all, given that I dissociate quite easily, but it is working out way better than I anticipated, and don’t have to brace myself to face the “real world” when the session is over, since I don’t have to travel at all to see you. Thank you for believing in me and giving me hope for a life that is more whole and meaningful by giving me a sacred and safe space that caters to my myriad of needs, that every therapist before couldn’t cater to, in order to fully heal. My only regret is that I didn’t meet you 9 years ago…”

Female Client, Age 28

“I have done 3 outdoor healing sessions with Michelle in Ojai, CA, all of which have been extremely beneficial and necessary to my healing process. I was sexually abused by my father as a baby and young child, all memories that were repressed until very recently, and so it’s incredibly difficult and intense work–so many dark feelings and emotions. The beauty of Ojai somehow softly encourages these memories and feelings to emerge and be processed. It is almost as if there is not enough space in real life to hold and process the intensity of what is coming up and through me, but when I am in nature, it can hold and absorb everything, and so it is so much more easily released. I process much more deeply and fully in these outdoor sessions than I do traditional therapy. Aside from nature being generally healing, Ojai, and Michelle, both have a soft, feminine energy that is gentle and balancing, which is essential given the darkness and intensity of the material. Ojai is said to have magical/mystical properties, and you can feel this when you’re there–like you’re being held and seen by Mother Nature. Michelle is also incredibly gifted and unlike any other therapist or healer I’ve ever worked with–her intuition is amazing, her energy is supportive, and I walk out with clarity and a feeling that I have recovered a piece of me. When you are abused as a child, your consciousness becomes fragmented, and so Michelle feels like she is facilitating me piecing myself back together and integrating all of the parts of me. Slowly but surely, she is guiding me to be more whole, more loving towards myself, and more “me.” I don’t know how she does it–she’s truly amazing.”

Female Client, Age 47

“In the few sessions I have had with Michelle I have found her to be a profoundly intuitive therapist. She hones in on my needs so directly and her analysis of what’s happening in my life is spot on. The thing that drew me to her was her Masters Degree in Kabalistic Studies. I felt that she would be attuned to my spiritual needs as well and I was right. I can truly say, after a lifetime of working with therapists, that Michelle is THE best therapist I’ve ever had.”

Male Client, Age 36

“I don’t have the words to define the excellent work you have done. All I would say is that your way and techniques are full of magic. You have the patience to listen to the patients giving them the courage to speak up. Your style is unique and friendly, which was really helpful for me to discuss all of my problems, including my feelings of guilt. And all those things I haven’t discussed with anyone, even with the people closest to me. Initially I was thinking that your services were a little expensive, but I was wrong. I used to have the worst migraines before my treatment with you. After the first session of EMDR, I haven’t had any headaches since then. I can’t express my feelings with the way you helped me. Thanks for everything you have done.”

Female Client, Age 24

“If you’re looking for an incredibly kind-hearted and genuine therapist, Michelle is it. She has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable, and her advice comes from a place that truly cares. Every week I looked forward to our sessions, knowing that when I left I would feel as though a weight had been lifted off me.”

Female Client, Age 55

“When I began therapy with Dr. Michelle Miller in March 2012, I had already tried traditional therapy off and on since the early 1990’s. I came to Dr. Miller suffering badly, barely able to complete a sentence without crying. As of April 2013, I currently have tools, I’ve learned in Dr. Miller’s care, to deal better in stressful situations. I have also been able to take better control of my life choices and make healthier choices. I have also been able to make significant changes in ‘negative” relationships, I’ve engaged in and ended some long-term co-dependent relationships, I’d engaged in for years. I am a retired Verizon Technician, I have chronic back pain, arthritis throughout my body and fybromyalgia. Dr. Miller has been integral to my ability to detox from a very heavy dose of pain pills, to make major changes in my life, ie co-dependency and poor relationships and to feel worthy of healthy relationships. I attribute much of my ability to deal with chronic pain without the need for more pain pills, to the work I am doing with Dr. Miller. I feel I’m at a critical point in my therapy, where changes are on the horizon. In Dr. Miller’s care, I feel capable of breaking dysfunctional habits, I’ve developed during my 55 years of life. This is the most productive therapy I have ever engaged in!”

Male Client, Age 42

“I started seeing Dr. Miller 4-5 weeks ago, and was able to resolve my issue which I have suffered from for many years, since my 3rd year of Medical school, when I lost self confidence and started having an issue with how to read or to study. I went to many psychiatrists and psychotherapists, and none of them were able to help me with my serious problem pertaining to my loss of self confidence and loss of my technique or method of studying my medical books. Dr. Miller went to the core of the issue, and in 4-5 sessions was able to solve years of suffering. I had a mountain on my heart and now I can finally breath. I feel like I left the mental prison that I was stuck in for years and am back to my normal life. I recommend Dr. Miller to anyone who is looking for a smart, proactive therapist who uses her time wisely and deeply cares about her patients.”

Female Client, Age 39

“I am a New Yorker in my late 30’s. Ive been going to therapy for 15 years and I finally found my fit. I often feel anxious and depressed and have benefited from a lot of self help books, meditation and positive affirmations. I always benefited from cognitive therapy but all that talking just wasn’t enough for me anymore. I longed for sessions that not only consoled me but worked with me through the tears, when I felt anxious or afraid. Michelle speaks my language. I love walking away with a new “tool” on my belt, a new point of view, or even a recommendation on a book. Michelle has provided me with suggestions that I often refer to when I’m off. This is the 1st time I went deeper in my therapy- although sometimes difficult, the visualization techniques we do and inner child work has done wonders for me. Sometimes I can see her mind going as she so thoughtfully chooses what to say and how to support me. I am grateful for her compassionate demeanor and straight talk!”

Female Client, Age 54

“Michelle is an excellent therapist. I grew leaps and bounds in the relatively short time we worked together in healing from childhood sexual abuse. I would highly recommend her.”

Female Client, Age 36

“I started working with Michelle a few months ago, and I am very grateful that I began therapy with her. Every week we meet, I’m surprised to feel the intensive (tears and laughter) inner work we do. Her patience, her laugh, and her warmth have always made me feel that I’m in a safe place. Her ability to listen without any judgment, and hold space for my problems makes the session even easier. To understand my emotional and physical problems, Michelle has done Inner Child Work, Hypnotherapy, EMDR, Shamanic Journey, Guided Imagery, and Jungian Psychotherapy during my sessions. From these approaches and her perseverance to dig as deep as possible Michelle has helped me let go of past issues, reduce depression, anxiety, insomnia, imaginary fights, negative and suicidal thoughts. As a result my self-esteem is higher, I am more vocal, I am more grounded in the present, and thinking about the future has become easier. I am emptying my mind of things that don’t let me grow. From her I have learned that I am unique, and that I must respect and honor my individuality. She has taught me to be patient and love myself. She has taught me that any change of energy, or gut feeling I have, there is a reason for it and I must listen to it, and that setting up boundaries with myself and other people is healthy. Now, I feel a shift of energy both emotional and physical. I know that my work with her is always evolving so I can step into the person I want to be. People around me have seen a change, my husband understands me more, and most importantly I have experienced a positive change. Thank you Michelle!”

Female Client, Age 26

“I very much enjoy and value the work I do with Dr. Miller. I came to her in pursuit of insight and advice but I find way beyond that in our sessions. She pulls out emotions and thoughts that are difficult for me to access in my day to day. Her guidance is helpful in processing these emotions and experiences and I am left with a different perspective an deeper self-awareness. Often we will use mediative methods that I find effective in shifting emotional blocks and exploring a more raw state of consciousness. Dr. Miller connects seemingly unrelated dots, resulting in enlightening moments and shifted views. I am grateful for her smart and compassionate approach to her work. She has been invaluable in helping me heal from old and new stresses in my life while also realizing a more complete sense of my self.”

Female Client, Age 33

“Dr. Michelle Miller is a kind, generous, gentle person who provides a serene welcoming space where one can unload our fears, concerns and problems. With wise insight she provides great advice and helps you see your life’s struggles in another light in order to overcome them and move forward. When I first saw Michelle…I would cry at the drop of a dime…feeling hopeless and stressed. After many sessions of inner-child work, I was better able to accept and make friends with my emotions and myself. I learned to be kinder to myself and am now happier. Through the inner-child work I also uncovered I was sexually abused as a child. Although it was difficult to accept, it was a very important missing piece in understanding the puzzle of my life. Thank you Michelle.”

Female Client, Age 30

“When I first went to See Michelle I felt like I was in a dark hole with no way out, too feeble to take control of my emotions and my life. After just a few sessions with her I started to feel a shift. My issues were put into a new perspective and I was able to take the necessary actions to improve my situation. Looking back I am amazed at how well I was able to deal with such a rough patch, to really turn it around and make it into a growing experience. Michelle’s insight and compassionate support was a big part of that. I am very grateful for her help and to have made the decision and commitment to work with her.”

Female Client, Age 36

“Deciding to work with you has been the best gift that I’ve given to myself in a long time, and I am beyond grateful for your brilliance and compassion, really….more than I can say. Thank you so much for being such an insightful and intuitive safe space for me-it means a lot. I look forward to many more sessions yet to come.”

Female Client, Age 35

“As someone who has tried therapy several times before, I was looking for a therapist who could understand me and my patterns and help me to recognize them and change them in ways that would serve me best. Because Michelle is close to my age, but also very knowledgeable about helping people develop their old patterns into new ones, I feel that I have found the perfect person to help me. She understands the world from my point of view and then also understands it from a much deeper place and I really feel that I have benefitted from working with her. I highly recommend her to anyone who just needs to talk and explore the things in themselves that they want to change but in a loving way. Thanks, Michelle!”

Female Client, Age 23

“Always exuding warmth and understanding, Michelle always created a safe and comfortable environment where I felt like I could talk about anything. Making it easy to explore areas and issues in a healthy and productive way, each session felt beneficial. She made what could have been an intimidating process, a smooth and motivating experience. I left her sessions feeling like I had accomplished more each time and was on a road to a better understanding of myself.”

Female Client, Age 57

“My experience with Dr. Michelle Miller was very helpful. I did not know what to expect but she made me feel comfortable. My discussions with her helped me regain some weight that I lost and my sleeping patterns resumed to eight hours a night. My problem seemed to vanish after talking through the way I was seeing things with my boyfriend.”

Female Client, Age 35

“I entered into therapy with Michelle in an attempt to better understand two close relationships – 1 family and 1 significant other. I began thinking they were two separate but equal issues that I wanted to address; perhaps tackle one and then move onto another. Michelle helped me to identify the role I was playing within each relationship and also that these two separate relationship issues were very much related.
Over the course of our work, Michelle guided me to recognize the patterns in my behavior, why these patterns existed and how I could begin to make changes to shift them and gain control again. After each session I would leave having learned something more about myself and with confidence to make small shifts in my life that would help me feel more at peace. I found my work with Michelle to be invaluable and would highly recommend her as a therapist. “

Female, Age 35

“I want to take the time to say Thank you for all the amazing work we’ve been doing together. After the past few sessions, I’m learning to let go and step into the powerful woman that I am, and it’s with your help that I can see from within the pain that I’ve been holding all these years. That I need to release, grieve it and make space for all the positivity in my life. I went to a one hour yoga class this afternoon, and while I was in this class I was smiling to myself because I had a moment to be aware that I’m doing something for myself and doing exactly what I have asked for. I was crying with joy – absorbing all the discussions we’ve talked about. Processing it all, and understanding that I can let it all go. I’m allowing myself to be emotional, and learning how to grieve all the pain I’ve been holding onto for so many years, and it’s proven to me that after our sessions- releasing it allows more space for me to step into the person that I truly am. So I just wanted to say a huge Thank You so much for your hard work.”

“Dear Michelle,
I came to you so afraid that I would live the rest of my life asleep–emotionally and spiritually. I came completely lost about how to work through the anger that I had stored up and quartered off into parts of my body that were feeling extreme pain because of it. I came unable to imagine life without the extreme loneliness I was feeling within my closest relationships because I was so afraid that my authentic self in full expression would be destructive and unlovable. I was at a loss. But in working with you, elements of myself that have felt static and paralyzed have begun to move. You have been unrelentingly accepting and welcoming of my higher self into the room and validated the depth of my experience. You have helped me not only trace where so much of my bottled-up anger comes from, but also have helped me process trauma and psychological abuse and heal in inner child work, hypnotherapy, EMDR, and Holographic Resolution Method. My close relationships, which had previously caused a lot of anxiety and anguish have benefited greatly from learning how to be honest. Connections with people that I thought would break if I brought my full self to the table have not broken, only deepened. I have a growing pride in my personal window of experiencing the world that before I had negated in order to mold to others around me. The biggest shock to me has been that I am finally waking up. The experience of being asleep–as if my heart and my mind were groggy and numb–was interrupted by our second or third session when you introduced a custom combination of Reiki, breathwork, inner child work and much more that I don’t know the names for. The healing went so deep so quickly, and the work following has provided an imagistic language for you and I to communicate with in which I feel seen fully. I am learning about the moments when I “fall asleep” or dissociate while they are happening, how to become present and grounded again even when it means feeling extreme grief, and how to relish experiencing the glory of the present moment.”

“I’ve had a one-hour skype session, and a two-hour session at Michelle’s office. I was suffering grief from poor interpersonal relationships that were continuously getting worse over the years. Using hypnosis and EMDR, she was able to pinpoint one specific traumatic event that happened to me when I was very young as a reason for the issues I was having. She helped me release the trauma, and rethink the situation with an integrated approach. She later help me release stress and grief through Breathwork, guided imagery, and Reiki. Her unique approach combining advanced psychotherapy with spiritual practices not only makes her a great psychotherapist, but she is also someone I look up to in my own study of psychology. Her sessions were immensely helpful. She is very supportive of her clients, and is very dedicated to her work. It felt like a lot of things were being released, I am feeling better, and am reflecting more positively on my life in general. Michelle is a great psychotherapist!”
