Dr. John K. Miller is a professor of therapy in the US and China and is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the US.  He has been working in China for the past 10 years.  He has been in clinical practice for the past 25 years, specializing in couples and family therapy as well as individual therapy.  His philosophy and approach to treatment considers the context in which problems occur and the relationships between the people involved.  With this in mind, he will occasionally ask for family and significant others to participate in treatment (only with your consent).  This therapy embraces a “wellness” approach to treatment, and encourages clients to explore existing strengths and resources.  Dr. Miller earned his Ph.D. in Child and Family Development with a specialization in Family Therapy from Virginia Tech.  He also holds a MA in Couples and Family Therapy from the University of Louisiana, as well as a BA in Psychology.  This education included coursework on couples therapy, family and child relationships, human sexuality, psychopathology, adult and child development, hypnosis, group psychotherapy, systems theory, and substance abuse counseling.  He is a former US Fulbright Senior Research Scholar to China (2009-2010), former Research Associate of the Mental Research Institute (MRI), a former president of the Oregon Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (OAMFT) and a Clinical Member of the American Family Therapy Academy (AFTA), the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), and the International Family Therapy Association (IFTA).  He has served on the Board of Directors of the AAMFT, as well as other leadership positions in the US.  Dr. Miller is also an Approved Supervisor (AAMFT), supervising other therapists’ clinical work leading to licensure.  He is the Director of the Sino-American Family Therapy Institute (SAFTI)
