Books by psychotherapists often focus more on theory and less on human interactions. In her memoir, On Becoming a Swan, Miller shares her personal journey toward a career in psychotherapy, demonstrating that telling stories about our experiences with others has tremendous healing power.

In her "highly readable memoir....about the power of listening by a passionate psychotherapist".....Kirkus Reviews, Dr. Miller weaves in countless anecdotes about the children and teens she encountered throughout her work, as each made indelible marks on her life.

.....She tells these stories in a strikingly sincere voice.....Faith is a nearly constant subject, but it's never alienating. Readers interested in youth counseling, in particular, will be inspired by the author's heartfelt journey....." Kirkus Reviews.

Fans of Anne Lamott's works will enjoy this book, as both authors combine a deep spirituality with an irreverent sense of humor, and so will those who admire Mitch Albom, with whom Miller shares the ability to recognize the value and humanity of others.
