Collaboration with Legal Professionals

Resiliency Center of Santa BarbaraDr. Revel Miller, clinical psychologist, actively collaborates with legal professionals to provide the best support for clients going through a divorce. He is a multidisciplinary team player who strives to support divorce attorneys and mediators in their practice and to improve the quality of life for their clients.

Case collaboration with Dr. Miller can help you serve your distressed clients better and prepare them for the rigors of the divorce process. By referring clients to Dr. Miller, you provide broader support for your clients to help them overcome stress and emotional, mental, relational and behavioral problems. He provides psychodiagnostic evaluations to pinpoint primary and secondary issues.

Collaboration with Dr. Miller also helps attorneys, mediators and their staff membersto better understand and manage their demanding clients and complex cases that they face in their practices every day.

When clients work with Dr. Miller in either psychotherapy or consultation, they become better legal clients to work with because they learn to understand how the divorce process works and what to expect. Therefore, they don’t burden their lawyers, mediators and staff with as much emotionality or use you as their sole confidante. And they don’t complain and blame you and the “system” for their troubles. They become more centered and self-aware.

When referred to Dr. Miller, clients work through their confusion, fear, sadness, anger and other pent up emotions with him, not you. He helps them to put things into realistic perspective, set priorities, and make necessary divorce decisions.
