Dr. Nina Miller is a clinical psychologist on the upper east side of Manhattan. In private practice for 20 years, she provides therapy to adults seeking greater ease, coping strategies, and personal development. Her specialty areas are treatment for anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, and cultural or social adjustment. She helps clients process events, reflect authentically, clarify needs and discover real-life solutions. Many of her clients are in their 20’s and 30’s and navigating life transitions— even a positive change can require new demands and stir up anxiety. Dr. Miller also enjoys working with caregivers, parents and activists on self-care, communication skills, and boundaries.
Dr. Miller is dedicated to offering Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) for clients struggling with depression and a recent relationship conflict or loss. She engages clients in acknowledging feelings and then to consider options and decide on an action step. Some of her clients benefit from role-playing in session to approach a conversation with family members or a significant other in a different way.
Dr. Miller integrates interpersonal, analytic and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques. She uses CBT strategies for panic, social anxiety, or trauma-related avoidance. For clients interested in processing early life events, the analytic (insight-oriented) approach helps to guide them toward acceptance, meaning, and a sense of new possibilities.
Dr. Miller received her Ph.D. from the Derner Institute at Adelphi University. She values truth, compassion, personal growth, and freedom. The duration of therapy can be short-term or longer-term; therapy is adapted to each individual’s challenges and objectives.
