Vanessa Miller, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 107814

Vanessa received her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Brandman University and her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a Minor Specialization in English from UCLA. Vanessa initially wanted to pursue a career as a medical doctor until taking a psychology class in high school. During the class, Vanessa realized the importance and lack of mental health care due to its many stigmas. Because of this, she felt a strong desire to pursue a mental health career in hopes of helping others heal emotionally.

Vanessa’s career began at UCLA where she worked for GEAR-UP as a tutor and mentor to below proficient students at Inglewood high school. Also, during her Gerontology class, she worked with elderly adults in an adult day care facility, aiding them in artistic and fun activities.  During her time at Brandman, Vanessa began her traineeship at Pacific Pride Foundation, where she provided therapy to the LGBTQI and HIV/AIDS community. Vanessa also worked at CALM, where she provided therapy through to children who were in foster care and being reunited with their families or adjusting to their new families. Vanessa’s most recent work was with California Psych Care, where she provided behavioral therapy to children with Autism both in the home and at school setting.

Vanessa’s diverse client background has shown her that an eclectic therapy style is very important. Vanessa feels that each client has their own specific needs and that it is important to explore multiple therapeutic options in order to best treat the client. She is constantly researching new therapeutic styles, while integrating well-known styles, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Bowen Family Therapy. Vanessa also understands that a therapist-client relationship needs to be based on trust and a mutual understanding of what is the best treatment plan for the client.
