As a psychiatrist, Dr. Miller is able to help you with both the mental and physical parts of any psychological or behavioral problems you may be experiencing. When you are having problems in your day-to-day life, experiencing anxiety, overcoming trauma or depression, or you simply aren’t sure what life should bring next, we at Family Psychiatry and Therapy know you can feel much more than mental pain—you may also need help treating physical pain.
Dr. Miller is highly experienced and knowledgeable of today’s psychiatric care, but she is also trained in anesthesia and pain management, which she uses in her practice to influence treatment plans when appropriate. No matter what you’re experiencing in your life, Dr. Miller is waiting to welcome you into the comfortable and confidential atmosphere of Family Psychiatry and Therapy. It’s time to start living the life you want.
The Psychiatric Education and Background to Help You
We never stop learning. To become an effective and helpful psychiatrist, Dr. Miller studied extensively and dove deep into the field she’s passionate about—helping people through psychiatry. Dr. Miller received her M.D. degree in 1993 from Hahnemann University School of Medicine in Philadelphia. Furthermore, she holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with academic honors from the University of Pennsylvania.
She completed her internship at Hackensack University Medical Center in the Department of Medicine. She completed her training in adult psychiatry in 2006 at Bergen Regional Medical Center in Paramus, New Jersey.
Dr. Miller also specialized in child and adolescent psychiatry, and she completed a two-year fellowship in 2008 at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, New York, the teaching hospital of New York Medical College. Her fellowship training and specialization helps her in diagnosing and treating developmental, academic and mood disorders associated with childhood and young adulthood. She has devoted much of her time to learning the many skills needed to help people so she can better help every person who comes through Family Psychiatry and Therapy. Everyone deserves to unlock their life’s potential—and she’s emerged herself in the know-how to be able to do just that.
In addition, Dr. Miller is also an anesthesiologist, and she completed a residency in anesthesiology at the prestigious Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in 1997. She integrates her knowledge of pain management and surgical illness into her practice. Oftentimes, mental illness and emotional distress cause much more than mental pain, but also physical pain. By having comprehensive knowledge of both sides to pain, Dr. Miller is capable of helping you with whatever you’re facing.
She was recently featured as a medical expert on Channel 4 News at Five in a segment discussing stress. Her far-reaching knowledge into the field makes her an expert who’s looked to for insight and assistance.
Psychiatry for Any Stage of Life
You’re never too old or young to get the help you need from a psychiatrist. When life seems like it’s too much, when challenging events throw themselves into your plans, if you need someone to lend a listening ear, or if you need help with physical side of your problems, Dr. Miller is here. Our priority is to be here to help you, no matter what you’re going through, so you can achieve all that s possible in your lifetime.
With expertise in child psychiatry, Dr. Miller knows what to look for when it comes to helping your child. Since children don’t have an established emotional vocabulary, it’s hard for them to tell you what they’re feeling—physically or mentally. Dr. Miller’s experience and education enables her to diagnose and treat problems like ADHD, anxiety, autism, depression and learning difficulties while teaching social skills, anger management and self-awareness.
Helping adolescents can be difficult. They’re undergoing huge life transitions—changing schools, changing friends, heading to college, etc.—and can fall into substance abuse, depression or anxiety. Dr. Miller can decipher a teen’s moral and behavioral code to help each person in the best way possible. She knows how to engage teenagers in a way that lets her examine their problems and work toward solutions.
Beyond children and adolescents, Dr. Miller has helped couples, families, adults, seniors and more work beyond what’s been holding them back or troubling them. Whether it’s personal injury and worker’s compensation, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, mental illness or stress, she can help you navigate the illnesses and issues that complicate your life whether it involves you or others around you. The first step to feeling better is seeking the help of a trusting and knowledgeable psychiatrist. It’s time to be taught the skills you need to take back your life, which is exactly what Dr. Miller sets out to do with her patients every day.
