Individual Wellbeing

Individual therapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. Several frameworks based on the foundations of attachment, psychodynamic and spiritual formation and transformational theories are used to addresses relational trauma, helps individuals heal from past relational wounds, and to discover their identity and purpose in Christ.

Relationship Recovery/Enhancement

We focus on a specific problem (i.e. infidelity, attachment issues, codependency, communication concerns, etc.). There is active participation on the part of the therapist in treating the relationship itself, rather than each individual separately. We utilize attachment frameworks to understand how each individual relates and relational trauma therapy to help overcome relational issues. Dr. Miles is certified in personality testing which aids in couples understanding how to relate based on individual personality types. Personality testing is an additional fee if couples are interested.

Read More

Family conflict refers to active opposition between family members. … Conflicts may involve different combinations of family members: it can be conflict within the couple or between parents and children or, again, between siblings. We believe resolving family conflict is a two-fold approach. First, is to determine what has caused the current crisis and what family members are prepared to do to reach an acceptable resolution. Throughout this process, the second component of conflict resolution takes place; learning to communicate effectively ensuring there is not any misunderstanding or assumptions that develop.

Spiritual Transformation

Read More

Real change comes about through inner work, when we “attend to soul” and discover who we are. Only then can we can realize our potential for truth, power, creativity and satisfaction. I have explored deeply the relationship between personal therapy and spiritual growth, because they refer us to our innate capacity for wholeness. I found that they are connected by a middle stage of authenticity that brings our unique, compassionate self into true relationship with other people and the world.

  My Approach

Trauma fragments/dis-orders our mind and block us from the awareness that we are one with God (the Creator and Source of our Wholeness). Christ-consciousness is the very embodiment of this awareness. This is not religion but a process of partnering withindividuals and couples to bring them to the awareness of their wholeness so they may have an expandedquality of life. Transformation is done through gaining insight, uprooting, and releasing dysfunctionalbiopsychosocial, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual patterns developed due to relational trauma. These patterns (birth out of trauma) held in our conscious and subconscious, when no longer needed for survival, are damaging to self and others. 

Christ-consciousness asserts:

1.) Your identity is rooted in the truth that you are created for a higher/divine purpose: 

Being concerned and trapped in intra/interpersonal pain blind and hinder us from being who we are created tobe. Our pain is an indicator something is not in alignment with our true-identity and purpose, and somethinghas to change. This is usually the precursor to seeking support.

2.) You are safe, stable, and secure possessing all the necessary relational essentials to achieve your purpose: 

A sense of being whole is stripped away when our primal needs to be/feel safe, stable, and secure are notpresent in relationships. Being present, not avoiding, but inviting the wisdom of Christ in the space where youf eel a sense of fight or flight is key. The goal is to evolve through the pain, not escape it. This is the therapeutic and spiritual work that is done in session.

3.) Your greatest work on this earth is to surrender to and be in service to God: 

Surrender is our highest calling. Our healing is only possible through surrendering our patterns and welcoming a new understanding (Christ-consciousness). When surrendered we are able to be vessels in service to God, ourCreator and Source that lives in us and through us. Here is our greatest desire we have yet come to know.
