Dr. Laura Jane Miller attended Emory University for college and medical school. During medical school she developed her interest in therapy and trauma with the Grady Nia Project where she helped to run groups and provide individual therapy. She went on to complete her adult psychiatry residency trainin at the Cambridge Health Alliance, a Harvard Medical School teaching affiliate. This community-based program instilled a passion for caring for the underserved, those with intergenerational trauma, and with keeping an eye on the whole person, using each interaction with a patient as a therapeutic opportunity. Dr. Miller then came back home to Atlanta to finish her child and adolescent psychiatry training at Emory.
Dr. Miller's interests lie in the first years of life and how those impact the rest of development. She is a certified Parent Child Interaction therapist and can also provide Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She is also enrolled in an Infant Parent Mental Health Fellowship with UMass Boston to deepen her understanding of the role of the early years in a person's development of later strengths and challenges. She plans to provide psychiatric evaluation and comprehensive treatment to the very young in collaboration with other Emory providers and those in the community to support the whole child and family.
