Abbie Miller, LCSW-C
Psychotherapist & EMDR Practitioner
Hello, I am Abbie Miller, a licensed clinical therapist. I am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), ITR (Instinctual Trauma Response), Therapeutic Expressive Arts and CBT/TF-CBT (Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). My therapeutic style focuses on being trauma informed and using various therapeutic modalities to create a client centered setting to achieve maximum growth and self-empowerment.
I attended Maryland Institute College of Art for my undergraduate degree. Through my art and teaching in Baltimore City, I was compelled to obtain my master’s degree and clinical license in order to make a different kind of impact on people’s lives. I graduated from Morgan State University with a master’s degree in social work, focusing on at risk children, youth and families. I quickly became drawn towards trauma work and obtained as much training in the subject as possible. My specific specialties resulted in a position providing therapy to survivors of sexual abuse, sex trafficking and exploitation.
In addition to trauma work, I have experience with Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Eating Disorders, Substance Abuse, Bipolar Disorder and various other diagnoses.
I always tell people at the beginning of our journey that “I work for you.” An open and honest relationship is essential to reaching one’s highest potential and therapeutic goals. Clients have described me as laid back while still maintaining a professional relationship.
I am excited to start this journey into the private practice setting after working in non-profits for all of my professional career!
