Bill Miller, Ed.D. (LP)
National Register of Health Service Psychologists #35449
As a licensed Psychologist, I have been working with children, adults, and families for over 35 years. In my general practice of counseling and psychotherapy, I combine a compassionate and humanistic approach to helping my clients gain needed insight to make positive changes, recognize challenges and opportunities, cope with problems and difficulties, and develop better self-understanding to help them lead a more effective and meaningful life. In my work with families I strive to help parents gain a better understanding of their children's needs for love, understanding and structure. I work with individuals, couples and families with many kinds of emotional, behavioral and spiritual issues and concerns. I strive to maintain a sound therapeutic relationship with my clients and always respect their confidentiality and integrity. In addition to counseling and psychotherapy I do some limited psychological testing, and provide consultation to area physicians and other professionals.
Trained in Colorado with a humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and existential orientation, I utilize insight oriented psychotherapy to help foster needed changes in my clients lives. I always aspire to show compassion, understanding respect for my clients feelings and needs. The development of a helping relationship with a mutuality of respect and understanding is my goal for each of my clients.
Some areas of specialization in my practice include: Anxiety and depression, psychological factors affecting physical illness, sexual disorders, grief and loss, parent-child relations, stress related problems and stress management issues.
Treatment approaches: Cognitive therapy techniques, stress management including relaxation training and some biofeedback, communication and relationship skill building, conflict management, insight oriented approaches, and personal growth and self-esteem enhancement.
In addition to my clinical work, I was a Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville for many years until 2014. My work with students, as well as with clients in my practice, has helped me to learn and grow professionally and personally.
