Who I Am

My Practice


Lonny D Miller is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist providing individual, couple and family therapy. My practice is focused on relationship issues, improving communication, addiction counseling, men’s issues, LGBTQ+ parenting, depression and anxiety. In therapy you will find a strength-based client centered approach, where your unique skills and values are used to help overcome the areas in which you are stuck.  A genuine respect for each person leads to a safe therapeutic alliance through which growth, healing and connection occurs as we work towards accomplishing your goals.

My Treatment Focus

My focus is to help individuals, couples, and families heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. This is achieved by providing a nurturing safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan that meets your goals.

My Patient Promise

I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in the celebration of your life. 

My Therapy

Addiction & Recovery

You can recover from addiction. 

Together we can help you or a loved one overcome addiction. There are evidence-based models to explore together that can help you:

  • Decide if you have an addiction. 
  • Learn about the genetics of addiction.
  • Read about alcohol, tranquilizers, marijuana, cocaine, and opioids.
  • Learn relapse prevention skills that will improve your chances of success.
  • Learn how to help a family member with an addiction.

LGBTQ Parenting

Parenting in today's complex and layered culture can be a challenge!  While the prevailing profession opinion is that a parent's sexual orientation or gender identity has nothing to do with your ability to be a good parent, LGBTQ parenting can have additional challenges that you want support for.  Providing supportive, affirming environment where you can find the support and information you desire to keep your families and partnerships strong.

LGBTQ Affirming

My approach to therapy that embraces a positive view of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) identities and relationships and addresses the negative influences that homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of my LGBTQ clients 

My Therapy

Depression & Anxiety

At some point in our lives, many of us will experience depression, fear, and anxiety.  These are some of the most common, yet uncomfortable emotions we can have.  However, through counseling and treatment, you can recover your motivation, perspective, and joy.

Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances.  Trauma & PTSD can come in the form of both large traumatic events and repeated smaller traumatic ones. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger from post traumatic events. Together, we can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing. 



Counseling can be beneficial to couples, polyamorous relationtionships, and families, who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held in a supportive environment to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
