Doctor Amy Miller

Unapologetically Myself – Welcome My Beautiful Friends to Gossip with Dr. Miller.

I am very excited to introduce myself to you as the newest columnist with GraniteCityGossip.

I am blessed to have this opportunity to entertain you, inspire you, laugh with you, debate with you, and keep you updated on Granite City’s local happenings. I want to open communication lines with readers and respond to opinions, concerns, stories, ideologies, and any questions you may want to share. Each week I will be choosing a response from one of my readers and answer it, following up with another article.

Do not be afraid to be honest with me. It takes a lot to offend me, and, in this forum, there is no judgment or silencing of voices.  We have all faced life on life’s terms with struggles, celebrations, hard times, and good times, so what you share just might be what someone else needed to hear at that moment. And, just as I want you to accept me, for me, I want you to be YOU. 

Weekly we will discuss anything and everything; life, kids, marriage, faith, struggles, businesses, pets, love, and so forth. So, as you read the articles weekly, please keep in mind that I am perfectly imperfect. Being a writer for a media outlet is a first for me, as my background encompasses a Doctorate in Management with a primary focus on Psychology and Criminal Justice. But I believe that my years of counseling and consulting will help us communicate openly and share some good stories. It may take a minute to get into the grove, but I have a strong feeling we are all going to be dancing before you know it! So, as long as you are willing to be open-minded, honest, and have some fun, we can all get to gossiping each week with Dr. Miller!  

Until next week, I Love You All…And There Is Nothing You Can Do About It!
