Hi. My name is Tzipporah Gerson-Miller. I am here to celebrate with anyone whose path has also taken a lot of twists and turns. I am embrace knowledge. I am a seeker of truth. Even when the truth is brutal, I strive to find a way to meet it with compassion and accept it’s reality. My early training in dance and then my 10 year career as a theatre artist gave me the tools to approach any challenge with awareness, creativity, and flexibility. I have a deep appreciation for the human condition, especially the resiliency part, and I am profoundly moved by the narratives of other human beings. I believe that all human beings already have everything they need within to heal and to re-integrate the various parts of the self that feel fractured. We do not come to therapy broken, however sometimes fear, anxiety, depression, trauma, and past relational wounding can feel crippling. I look forward to collaborating with you on this journey to speak your truth.
Using a woman centered and body oriented approach, I help teenage girls and women throughout the lifespan learn to manage difficult emotions, realize the influence that gender and social conditioning has on the human psyche, reduce addictive behaviors, and cultivate healthy relationships so that they can meet everyday challenges with confidence, while experiencing inner peace.
By combining modern psychotherapy and the healing traditions of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and somatic awareness, I can facilitate a transformative process that will assist you in getting to the root cause of suffering.
In 2011, I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Georgia. After graduating, I gained extensive clinical experience providing services in hospice & palliative care, psych-oncology, programs for the homeless, domestic violence shelters, psychosocial rehabilitation, peer support, and outpatient mental health clinics. Within these settings, I have treated adults living with depression, anxiety, PTSD, complex trauma, substance abuse, grief & loss, psychosis, self-harm, mood instability, and those living with chronic pain, cancer, and autoimmune disorders. I am licensed as an LCSW in the state of Georgia.
In addition to my work as a clinical psychotherapist, I am also a certified yoga therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists and 500 hour level therapeutic yoga teacher. I completed my 200 hour training through the Pranakriya School of Healing Arts in 2013 and subsequently my 500 certification in yoga therapy through the Center for Integrative Yoga Studies in Atlanta, GA in 2016. I have additional training in trauma sensitive yoga, yoga for mood management, yoga for substance abuse, yoga for chronic pain, cancer, and those recovering from a traumatic brain injury. I founded and direct the Southern Yoga Therapy Association as well as produce a podcast called Ancient Tools for Modern Living that may be accessed on this site.
