Professional statement

Dr. Nina Miller is a clinical psychologist based in Manhattan. She works with adults of all ages and backgrounds. Most of her clients seek to process emotional difficulties they’re having, gain new coping skills, and increase self-awareness. Dr. Miller integrates Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) techniques with cognitive -behavioral and psychodynamic approaches. IPT focuses on a recent change most linked to current distress and ways to improve both the situation and symptoms simultaneously.

She is particularly passionate about helping young adults to manage the demands of a new role or a relationship conflict with greater confidence and understanding. In a typical session, Dr. Miller’s clients discover new communication options and may engage in informal role-playing. She also has expertise in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and works with clients to address thoughts causing them pain or getting in their way.

Dr. Miller’s style is adaptable to each individual. In an initial visit, her goal is to create a safe space for clients to talk and to collaborate on an initial treatment plan. The duration of therapy can be short-term or longer-term. The intake visit is 60-70 minutes and, from there, sessions are 50 minutes.

Dr. Miller received her Ph.D. from the Derner Institute at Adelphi University and a bachelors degree from Yale with a major in psychology. In her own life, Dr. Miller values personal growth, contribution, equality and compassion.


Message to clients

It takes courage to reach out and ask for help, and it’s a sign of strength not weakness. The first contact is a step toward the help you deserve. Let me know the best times for a brief initial phone call, if the slots I have on the booking section here don’t work. In the initial call, we talk about scheduling and fees, and I ask you to share a bit about what you’d like help with and past treatment. I can answer any questions you have.

Sessions can be in person or virtual— or a combination. I currently follow healthcare setting COVID guidelines for in person visits. After the first visit, I would give you more feedback on what our work together would look like. Your objectives will inform this feedback.

I draw from evidenced-based approaches and a deep appreciation for unique details, emotional attunement, the impact of childhood experiences and specific cultural background. I look forward to getting to know you.
