Testimonials for Daisy Miller, Ph.D., LDN
"Working with Dr. Miller was life changing. I have struggled with weight ever since I can remember. I was always the "chubby" kid, the heavy teen, and the yo-yoing adult. One night, after eating everything in my pantry, I decided to try a different approach to weight management. I figured that if I were going to fix this obsession with food, I would need a professional to help me understand how I got there in the first place. I turned to Dr. Miller for a life change; in search of answers that I hoped would be the key to a peaceful relationship with my body and with food...ONCE AND FOR ALL.
After 5 minutes with Dr. Miller, I knew I had made the right decision. During our time together, I learned things about myself that helped me put the pieces of the puzzle together and to understand "why" I was the way I was. Dr. Miller armed me with the tools and awareness I needed to slowly find a place of peace...and with that came new habits and much lower numbers on the scale. I am forever grateful to Dr. Miller for giving me what I needed to take this turn in life. I feel great, look great, and most importantly, I am no longer a prisoner to food." ~ Ashley, 39y
"When I began working with Daisy Miller, I had been in treatment for disordered eating for 15 years. Inpatient hospitalization can break habits but it doesn't teach life management. Daisy taught me how to establish appropriate boundaries with my family. She coached me into effective planning of time. Daisy helped me believe that I had the skills and abilities to be functional and effective in my professional, personal, and social life. Every week, she gave me the messages necessary to establish new ways of thinking and new ways for simply 'dealing.' She countered my beliefs about my potential as a loving partner, and gave me different approaches to dating and relationships.
And most importantly, she helped me understand that eating is not a tool to evaluate the good or bad in any given day. I had seen 13 therapists and psychiatrists from age 19 to 34 before I met Daisy. She was the best. She was the only one who truly helped. Food is no longer a rule system. And I have the tools to navigate eating and the rest of the world." ~ Jane, 38y
"Dr. Daisy Miller has been instrumental in helping to transform my daughter's attitude about her body and her relationship with food. When we began working with Daisy, Jenny was dealing with very poor body image issues (age 10). She ate often for comfort and used food as an outlet for emotions. It was a struggle to get Jenny to get up an exercise. We had found one or two physical activities that Jenny enjoyed and, while she would do those physical activities willingly, her body image issues still remained. In general, Jenny was not happy with who she was, based largely on her poor body image. Daisy helped Jenny change her outlook.
Over the months we worked with Daisy, she helped Jenny learn to recognize her emotions and how those emotions triggered her desires to eat. She gave Jenny some tools for gauging if she was really hungry or if she was eating for other reasons. She allowed Jenny to help find her "voice" for her feelings and use different techniques and strategies for those emotions instead of eating. She helped Jenny face some incredibly difficult observations about how Jenny felt about her own body. Over the four months we spent with Daisy, Jenny developed several strategies for "taking a temperature" on both her moods and her hunger. Those have been so valuable!
Overall, I have a child who is now much more comfortable and confident in her own skin. Thank you, Dr. Daisy Miller!" ~ Karen, mom to J. 10y
