Courtney Miller, PsyD
Pre-Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Interns
I am excited to announce that I have joined Berkeley Therapy Institute and am currently providing online therapeutic services. I will be providing therapy services as a Registered Psychological Associate under the supervision of Dr. Rima Dolgoff-Kaspar and Dr. Steve Walch.
My Passion and Offerings: I am passionate about helping women pursue their holistic wellness: mind, body, spirit and relationships. I enjoy working with overwhelmed, new mothers who are looking for a space to process their identity, stress, mood, familial relationships, couple issues, health, spirituality, and life and career transitions. In addition to this, I am passionate about supporting women in processing early childhood trauma. I enjoy providing individual therapy for teen girls and women, couples therapy, parent support and group therapy. Currently, I am offering an online support group for new mothers, who desire to come together with other new moms, share their experiences, and support each other as they navigate the journey of motherhood.
Bringing the Whole Self: It is essential in my work to provide a space where you can bring your whole self. As a Black woman of faith, wife and mother, I understand the complicated ways of how our identities can intersect with societal oppression, which can lead to us feeling that we cannot truly be seen for who we are. To combat this, I believe it is essential for us to bring your full self into therapy, which can include exploration and practices of movement, rest, nutrition, reflection and community. And if you're interested, I'm more than happy to incorporate faith into our therapeutic journey—I offer Christian counseling as well.
My Therapeutic Approach: I approach our therapeutic relationship with authenticity, warmth, curiosity, and connection as I desire to create a meaningful alliance with you where you feel seen, heard and understood. I desire to create a healing environment where you can feel empowered as you navigate the challenging areas in your relationships and life. I integrate various trauma-informed therapeutic approaches including psychodynamic, feminist, relational, attachment, CBT and narrative theories.
How to Work With Me: I am currently accepting referrals and welcoming clients who desire to pay out of pocket or utilize their insurance (Aetna, Blue Cross, Alameda Alliance, Cigna and UCSHIP).
