Dr. Kali Miller received her degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Kansas in 1990. She has worked with traumatized infants, children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings including in-patient, day-treatment, and private practice for over 25 years. Her real education regarding Reactive Attachment Disorder began when her beloved, beautiful but very wounded god-daughter was placed with her 23 years ago. Since that time, she has worked with a continuum of attachment issues, taught graduate students at a local seminary, and spoken nationally on a variety of topics including non-directive play, sand tray, animal assisted therapy, trauma, and reactive attachment disorder.
Dr. Kali continued her education regarding the treatment of trauma and attachment issues through Nancy Thomas advanced parenting techniques and by integrating the ever expanded information on the impact trauma has on the brain. She has volunteered at over 15 Nancy Thomas Healing Hearts Camps and has been refreshed and inspired by the accelerated healing that camp attendance brings hurting children and their dedicated families.
Dr. Kali has transitioned from clinical practice and is now bringing her heart for healing to parent coaching and providing consultation for other therapists. She lives in Portland, OR with her entitled Manx Thea and her miniature house horse Prince Legacy. She notes, “if anyone tells you parenting a left brain extrovert horse is a lot like parenting a child with Reactive Attachment Disorder, believe it!”
