About Tiffany Miller
My interest in human behavior began at the age of 11 while helping my Mother in our family daycare business. My Mother, a former nurse, would closely observe the children she had in her care and work to help develop their social, emotional and educational skills. After years of working in our family business, once I entered college I was clear as to where my educational path would lead me. I earned my B.A. in Psychology at Chapman University in Southern California. Following graduation, a sense of adventure brought me to New York City where I earned my M.A. in Counseling at New York University. For the next two years I worked as a case manager and counselor servicing a population coping with severe psychopathology. I then headed back to school to enter the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, City College Campus.
As a Clinical Psychologist I have worked in a wide variety of settings including hospital psychiatric units, out patient mental health centers, Emergency Rooms and nursing homes. I have treated individuals in therapy between the ages of 16 and 96. As a psychologist in private practice I have combined my varied experiences into a practice model that allows me to first and foremost meet people where they are.
Psychotherapy as I practice it, is a collaborative journey through your life story. By focusing on both the past and the present I will work with you to understand yourself, your motivations, your feelings and uncover the barriers that prevent you from attaining contentment and calm in your life. My therapeutic style is compassionate, flexible and affirming with a little bit of humor thrown in when necessary. I work hard to put my patients at ease and assist them in opening up their thoughts and feelings in therapy.
