Colleen Miller, PhD, R. Psych, is a clinical psychologist with 20 years of experience working with women with chronic pelvic pain within an interdisciplinary team consisting of gynecologists, a nurse, pelvic physiotherapists, a kinesiologist, and a dietician. From the women themselves, she has learned about the distressing physical and psychological impact of endometriosis, and believes that through early identification coupled with multidisciplinary treatment options including mental health services, women can be empowered to reach their full potential in ways that matter to them, despite this disease. Dr. Miller is a past recipient of a Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) scholarship for the qualitative study of the impact of childhood sexual abuse and is a current academic educator of psychosocial factors in chronic pain for Continuing Medical Education (CME) learners. She is the co-developer of the Intimacy Group (Breton, Miller & Fisher, 2008) which provides evidence-based psychological treatment for the impact of chronic pain on women’s sexual function. Her current clinical interests include pain neuroscience education, pain stigma, pain impact on sexual function, and the unique psychology of chronic pelvic pain.
Dr. Miller has nothing to disclose.
