Trauma Recovery Coaching 

Welcome to Kim Miller Trauma Coaching:

Trauma and DBT Informed Coaching for Empowered Living

As a DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and trauma -informed coach, I specialize in supporting individuals while they reclaim their lives and overcome the lingering effects of traumatic experiences. While incorporating evidence based DBT techniques and principles into our sessions, together we are able to build and strengthen skills such as healthy coping mechanisms, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. As a result, clients are able to greatly enhance their own feelings of self-worth, stregthen their resilience, and overall feel more empowered.
