Carol Miller, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland. She has over twenty-five years of clinical experience with children, adolescents, adults and couples. Since 2009 she has also worked as a child specialist and divorce coach on collaborative teams. She obtained an undergraduate degree from Washington University, a law degree from Antioch School of Law, and a doctorate in clinical psychology from American University in 1993. Her earlier experience as a practicing attorney has given her a unique perspective on the collaborative divorce process, which utilizes a blend of legal and psychological skills in an effort to protect families from the fallout of a more adversarial approach and lay the groundwork for an amicable future relationship. The collaborative approach has the ability to produce a legally sound agreement on shared goals and have a healing effect on the parties at the same time, a remarkable and powerful accomplishment.
