Doug Miller, Ph.D.
Let's talk about what's really holding you back.
Have you had difficulty finding direction or excelling and feeling empowered in your work, even though you have had various successes?
Are you searching for a partner or want more passion and appreciation for your relationship, even after you've put effort into improving it? Do you want more supportive relationships with other men?
Do you feel bogged down by responsibilities that keep you from taking risks and doing what you really want?
MEANING AND PURPOSE:
Bring your sense of meaning and/or spirituality more deeply into your day-to-day life. Learn to trust your gut instincts in a way that more fully serves you.
So many men want more fulfillment in their lives, but they also say:
"I just can't find the balance between work, home and play."
"I've done work on myself but there is still something missing."
"I want to be happier but I gotta take care of my responsibilities."
"I have an idea of what I want but don't know how to make it happen."
Male conditioning teaches us to disconnect from what we really want.
If you can relate to any of this, know that it doesn't have to be this way.
Male conditioning has caused a separation between who you truly are and who the world expects you to be.
Add problematic family patterns or personal trauma and you may find yourself depressed or addicted.
Imagine life after bringing your whole self into alignment
I can help you access your deep and reliable source of guidance, power and connection
I'm Dr. Doug Miller, PhD. I can help you increase the fulfillment you experience in your life by helping you reclaim lost aspects of yourself that male conditioning has walled off.
I will also help you heal from difficult life experiences that cause additional separation from your true self and from others.
It is within your power to be aligned with your true feelings and wants, which will make you clear and more effective in all that you do.
Commit to yourself and deeper fulfillment!
Three Sessions With Email Support
The 3 Session Package with Email Support is an excellent way to get started on the path to authenticity, alignment and fulfillment.
You will also get email support as well as access to my online Men's Group Forum.
If you are not sure if you're ready, but you know that you need to do something, start with a free video consult to get to know one another.
If we decide during our consult that we're a good fit to work together, here are the next steps:
COMPLETE INITIAL ASSESSMENT
A series of questions designed to help me get to know you better and save time so that we can jump right into to resolving the underlying issues.
SIGN UP AND SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
FILL OUT CLIENT INFORMATION FORMS
This includes Informed Consent, i.e., information regarding the process and what you can expect.
Sessions are through secure video conference, and last around an hour.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE ONLINE FORUM
Currently under development. This is a place that men can go and share with other men who are on a similar path.
FOR EMAIL ACCESS PACKAGES, KEEP IN TOUCH WHEN ISSUES ARISE
Because life unfolds as it will, and we cannot choose when issues arise, clients who opt for email access can send confidential emails to me that will be responded to within 24 hours.
What comes after the 3 Session Package?
I work with clients individually, in groups, and on retreats.
What is psychotherapy all about?
I recommend reading this great resource: Psychotherapy: Myth Versus Reality.

About Dr. Doug Miller
Dr. Miller received a calling to be a psychologist when he was 14, and like many in the field, this was both a calling to self-awareness as well as to helping others. He graduated from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts with high honors in Psychology in 1985; with minors in Biology and Comparative Cognitive Anthropology. Having searched for graduate programs in Clinical Psychology that would suit his intuitive and emotional personality, he was accepted into the only program approved by the American Psychological Association that mentioned the word “intuition” in it’s description of itself: Georgia State University, where he learned Gestalt Therapy along with Jungian, Existential and Psychodynamic psychotherapies. Always maintaining a holistic and spiritual/growth oriented approach, he took classes in health and consciousness, became a Reiki Practitioner, and was a therapist for family of origin intensives, helping to heal the deep issues resulting from our family experiences.
Doug's Master’s Thesis was on the cognitive, emotional and self-awareness factors in adult development; his general examination topic for his Doctoral degree was on the relationship between existential and spiritual issues in psychotherapy; and his Doctoral Dissertation was on the relationship between The Myer’s Briggs Type Indicator/Jung’s Theory of Types and Personality Pathology. Since receiving his Master’s degree in 1988 (receiving his Doctoral Degree in 1995), he has had a thriving private psychotherapy practice while he also turned his focus to Forensic Psychological Evaluations working with family’s involved with the courts, as well as criminal cases.
Doug has spent a substantial time in exploring his own and other’s spirituality and encourages each individual to follow their own awareness and path. These experiences have brought him to a keen and deep understanding of the interplay and healing of psychological and emotional dynamics in the context of personal life development, empowerment and spiritual growth. Having met Elicia Miller, his soul mate and wife, they share the same passion for healing and personal growth and have accelerated one another’s journey’s.
Doug's focus with men is on recapturing aspects of self that have been lost to male conditioning, while healing the personal wounds that stand in the way of full-living, vulnerability, emotional satisfaction and deeply satisfying relationships. He sees the value of this work not only in terms of individual development but also as a way to improve men’s role in society, across societies and in relation to the planet. He is very compassionate with an approach that sometimes includes humor, while he honors each man's process.
