Hi! I’m Danielle Miller, LSCSW. Welcome to my blog.
I am a licensed child and family therapist in the state of Kansas. With more than 14 years of experience in the field of social work, I developed a few beliefs that have set the tone for my life and work perspective. I believe most people are doing the best they know how to do. I passionately believe in the body’s natural ability to heal itself given the right tools. I believe every individual can learn strategies and techniques to undo negative thoughts, overwhelming feelings and harmful behaviors. I believe change is always possible but change comes from hard work. I believe in being human – daily exercise, a consistent sleep routine, strong social connections, time spent in nature, and eating whole foods that nourish the brain and body.
Simply put – I believe in the whole person.
I have spent much of my adult life working with some of our most vulnerable teenagers and children in the public school systems of Boston, Massachusetts and Jeffersonville, Indiana. I have witnessed foster care youth rise after every disappointment. I have walked along side teenage girls and boys who have been stripped of every physical and emotional belonging yet they still find a way to smile or laugh. I have heard children cry as they recount horrific abuse stories but they continue forward each and every day.
I believe in resiliency. I believe in the power of the human spirit. And sometimes that human spirit just needs a toolbox.
After graduating Boston College with my Masters of Social Work, I completed three years of clinical supervision to obtain my LSCSW. I now practice as a cognitive behavioral therapist throughout the state of Kansas helping teens, young adults and small children learn coping skills to address an array of mental health symptoms and concerns.
I can guarantee you I am no doctor or dietician. I cannot create miracles on my blog or in my practice. But I can promise you the content I share is the same information I pass on to my family, closest friends and clients. My deepest intention is to help my family live happy and healthy lives. Now with my blog and private practice I hope to pass this intention on to you. We can improve the moods of our children in part through the foods we consume and the way we choose to live. Our kids deserve better. Let’s do this together. Thank you for being a part of this journey.
