Serena Miller-Sears

Welcome! I bring an openness and curiosity to individuals of all ages and couples of any relationship type, identity, or ethnicity. I am particularly suited to work with anxiety, depression, life transitions, spiritual exploration, and relationship struggles. With a foundation of mindfulness, I work somatically and relationally in the present moment.

I specialize in working with couples using primarily emotionally-focused modalities. I focus on deepening intimacy using the present moment and working through stuck patterns. I have experience working with alternative relationships including polyamory. I am especially keen to empower couples to use relationship as a tool for growth.

I have a special passion for working with people who are living alternative lifestyles and would like support navigating and integrating with the conventional pressures of society, friends, and family. I also especially like to work with clients exploring or wanting to deepen their spirituality. With the understanding that there are a myriad of expressions of any growth process, I help each individual explore their own unique version.
