RaiNesha Miller, Ph.D.

Staff Counselor, Coordinator of Services for Black Students

Pronouns: she/her/hers

I received my doctorate degree in Counseling Psychology at Oklahoma State University and completed my pre-doctoral internship at the University of Florida’s Counseling and Wellness Center. I have served clients in various community mental health and university counseling settings emphasizing the equitable delivery of services to underserved communities. My professional interests include understanding the ways in which one’s sociocultural context impacts their identity formation, world navigation, and mental health. Specifically, I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Intersectionality, Black Feminist Thought, and Internal Family Systems to examine the impact of possessing multiple marginalized identities on an individual’s experiences of depression, anxiety, suicidality, and relational conflict. It is important that each of my clients feel seen, heard, accepted, and supported when working with me. My style of therapy spotlights honesty, transparency, empathy, and mutuality as I work to ensure that the therapeutic space does not become a microcosm of oppression for any of my clients.

My consistent self-care routine includes spending time with friends and family, cooking foods that reflect my southern roots, engaging in various physical wellness activities, and enjoying a good laugh or two.
