Michelle Miller, MFT

Michelle Miller graduated from the University of Iowa with a bachelors degree in Psychology in 1992. From very early on in her studies, she has been dedicated to the practice of working with people experiencing emotional distress. Missing her native California, she returned to San Francisco to start her professional life. Ms. Miller worked at several residential facilities for the severely mentally ill both with troubled adolescents as well as with adults. Due to her background as a Mexican American and the ability to speak fluent Spanish, her focus and expertise has always been in working with the Hispanic community. It didnt take long before Ms. Miller was certain that a graduate degree was necessary to help her meet her professional goals and was accepted at San Francisco State University. Ms. Miller graduated with a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology in the year 2000. In order to pursue her interest and work with the Hispanic community, Ms. Miller accepted a position in Oakland, California at La Clinica de la Raza as a mental health counselor. There, she had the opportunity to work with monolingual and severely mentally ill adults. Always seeking professional growth and new challenges, Ms. Miller decided to broaden her experience by working as a Child Welfare Worker for the City and County of San Francisco. Ms. Miller learned how to manage very difficult situations, make difficult decisions under pressure and how to write very clear and concise reports for the Court. It was this work that lead Ms. Miller to the position she holds today as a Family Court Mediator for the City and County of San Francisco. As a mediator Ms. Miller has gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about the Court, family dynamics, family law, and of course the importance of facilitating the Court in making good decisions on behalf of children.
