Hi! Welcome to Miller Counseling & Consulting, LLC (est. 2014). I have an important announcement. As of May 1, 2021, I have mostly transitioned to a coaching practice called Roots & Keys Coaching, LLC. I am no longer accepting most new clients for therapy, although I’m always accepting new clients for coaching. Read on to see what makes the most sense for you.
Here are some options:
If you are a potential new client and you want to focus not on the past, but on today and tomorrow, coaching is probably right for you.
If you are a potential new client and you feel: stuck, unhappy, uninspired, disconnected, misaligned, inauthentic, as if you don’t belong, in the wrong job or relationship, or just need help to get your life together, coaching is probably just what you need. (ESPECIALLY if you are an INFJ ) on the MBTI; I happen to be one too and will definitely “get” you!)
If you are a potential new client and what you need is relationship work, coaching is probably right for you. (Please note that a lot of couples/marriage work is about skill-building and forgiveness, not so much about mental health.) I don’t think most couples necessarily need a therapist. They DO need someone who is skilled & knowledgeable, and who they feel comfortable with, to guide them to a better connection. *raises hand* I’ve been working with couples for over a decade and literally wrote a book about what I’ve learned.
Please visit my website and see if working with me feels right for you. It is possible you came here thinking you want a therapist, but what you may really need is a coach! Especially true if what you were initially attracted to was my solution focus and no bullsh*t approach. That’s 100% me, regardless of the hat I’m wearing.
Okay, now, if you are a potential new client and you want to focus on the past and on resolving patterns of behavior that stem from childhood, then therapy IS probably what you need. Similarly, if you are a potential new client and you have an active mental health issue that needs attention (e.g., a mood disorder like depression or bipolar disorder), have any suicidal ideation, or you need a provider to work through a lot of unresolved trauma, I am not the right provider for you at this time. For right now, you would probably benefit most from seeing a clinical social worker or counselor who specializes in such things. I have a list of recommended St Louis therapists I can offer you. Email me and I’m happy to share that list with you. Please note that once your immediate mental health issues feel manageable, please circle back and consider doing coaching with me in the future if you were drawn to me. I’ll be at www.rootsandkeyscoaching.
If you were a therapy client in the past and wish to return, but have not seen me in a long time, you will need to be screened for next steps, either transitioning to coaching if appropriate or being referred to another provider for therapy. See the info above and screen yourself pretending you’re a new client. If you want my therapy referral list, email me. If you already like how I do things and think coaching is what you need, proceed to schedule yourself here: www.calendly.com/

Thank you everyone! Can’t wait to see you!
