Professional statement

Annie Miller is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and Washington, DC. She specializes in anxiety, adolescent-related topics, trauma, chronic pain and illness, and has a particular specialty in sleep disorders and insomnia. Annie’s practice is open to both adults and teenagers.

Clients often come to see Annie when anxiety or other concerns are preventing them (or their adolescents) from getting restful, restorative sleep. She uses her background and training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) to analyze clients’ sleep habits, and develop treatment plans tailored to their particular experiences. She may also implement techniques from Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), especially when the insomnia is related to trauma or chronic stress. 

Annie particularly enjoys helping clients shift their mindset towards positive thinking in order to help them feel tangible results from therapy work in their everyday lives, based on principles of neuro-plasticity. This is especially applicable in her work with clients managing pain and chronic illness. She implements CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and EMDR to encourage her clients to challenge their negative thought patterns, and instead channel an optimistic mindset to reduce stress and the detrimental effect it can have on already-existing pain and illness.

Annie’s practice is open to both adults and teenagers. Her offices are conveniently located in Friendship Heights and Tenleytown (inside of Restorative Health), where she looks forward to welcoming you.


Message to clients

Are you having trouble falling or staying asleep? Are you replaying painful memories in your head, unable to get past troubling thoughts? If you or your adolescent have tried everything to get better sleep, get rid of negative thoughts and anxiety, I can help using evidence-based techniques like EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing) and CBT-i (cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia). In my practice, I help teenagers and adults work through depression, anxiety, trauma, chronic illness and problems sleeping.

If you have a busy schedule, working on yourself gets put off for months or even years. You may even feel like you are not worth prioritizing. Reaching out to a therapist can be difficult, but it is the first step toward getting better. Please contact me for a free phone consultation to determine if we will be a good fit.
