Michael Miller, Counselor

MIKE_MILLER_250X250
    I have worked with NCFF over a number of years in a variety of different capacities. Presently I am working as a part time counselor two evenings per week. I believe I am here as a direct calling by God, on my life, to use the talents and abilities he has given me to minister to struggling people, individually, maritally, and those struggling with substance abuse issues. My desire is to minister God’s healing and call to growth of his children and to be a living example of the gospel to believers and non-believers alike. My vision is helping people break through barriers in their lives that hold them back from being free to love themselves and others as Christ loves his church and free to pursue their higher calling in life as well. I offer my services through individual and marital therapy with individuals and marital couples.

    I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree from Kent State University with a major in Social Work, and my Master’s of Science degree from Case Western Reserve’s School of Applied Social Science with special focus in both mental health and chemical dependency. Over the past 30 years, I’ve worked in a number of different settings ranging from community based agencies, inpatient and partial hospitalization programs and of course private practice with NCFF. I am licensed by the State of Ohio as a Licensed Independent Social Worker with Supervisory endorsement.

    I have been married to my lovely wife Karen for 32 years and we have 2 grown children, son Christian who resides in California and daughter Allison who resides here in Ohio. My wife and I make our home in Summit County and attend and minister at Grace Church in Barberton, Ohio.
