Joanne Talbot Miller, LMFT

EMDR Therapist in Berkeley, CA

Elissa Crandall, LMFT
Meet Joanne: Hello! I’m Joanne Talbot Miller. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and an EMDR-trained therapist. I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2013. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Bedfordshire in England and my graduate degree from the University of Phoenix. I utilize EMDR, T-CBT, DBT, Solution Focused Trauma Therapy, and Applied Behavioral strategies in an integrated approach to healing and recovery.

My EMDR Therapy Specialties in Berkeley:

I work with children, adolescents, and adults. I help individuals, couples, and families reduce symptoms and maladaptive behaviors that impact their relationships and functioning.

  • Simple and complex trauma
  • Crisis intervention
  • Domestic violence and sexual assault
  • Dual diagnosis; substance abuse and mental health disorders
  • Mood and personality disorders
  • Severe mental health disorders
  • Sex and intimacy issues related to trauma
  • Active duty, veterans, and first responders

What drew me to this work: From an early age people would turn to me to discuss their problems. Becoming a therapist seemed like a natural choice. However, I struggled to verbalize the trauma in my own life. On my journey to becoming an EMDR therapist I was able to identify how early traumatic events had impacted my emotions, choices, and relationships and experience firsthand the benefits of trauma therapy. Working with nonprofit organizations, I provided trauma therapy to victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, and sexual assault. Through this work I developed a passion for helping people resolve trauma and improve their daily lives. I help clients learn emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills while desensitizing the impact of traumatic events.​

My style: Through warmth and caring I develop a safe, supportive nurturing environment to promote growth and healing.

Services I offer: I currently offer online video counseling using EMDR for residents of California.
