Dr. Mills is a child, adolescent and family psychotherapist at The PSYCH Group, LLC. Her approach to therapy emphasizes the importance of the family system; to understand the child, it is important to understand the family of that child. Just like every child is unique so, too, is the family and how they function with each other, how they handle and resolve obstacles, and their identified role in the family. By combining the insight of the family and Dr. Mills' professional experience, she helps to empower the child and the family to improve their relationships, resolve conflict, and overcome the individual challenges in which the child or adolescent is coping. During therapy with the child, she focuses on time-limited, problem-solving techniques while using play, therapeutic exercises, and role-playing tailored to the age and interest of the child. Dr. Mills graduated from Spelman College with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and went on to receive her Masters Degree in Developmental Psychology at George Mason University and her Doctorate from Fordham University in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Children, Adolescents, and Families. She has been working with children and families for 14 years in a variety of therapeutic settings including therapeutic schools, psychiatric hospitals, community mental health centers, and home-based settings.
