About Joey Miller
Ms. Joey Miller, MSW, LCSW, is a licensed clinical social worker at Wellsprings Health Associates in Chicago. With over 20 years of experience in women’s reproductive health and medicine, she provides support and expert guidance to women and their partners through the often complicated, challenging, and sometimes heart-wrenching pursuit of parenthood. She compassionately guides her patients through the challenges of infertility to childbirth and postpartum, as well as through egg/sperm/embryo donor, surrogacy, and/or adoption. She has extensive experience in the areas of prenatal diagnosis and reproductive decision-making, high-risk pregnancies, perinatal/neonatal/pediatric loss, and the unique challenges of subsequent pregnancy after a loss.
Joey's practice areas include loss and trauma, as well as women's mental health issues throughout the life cycle. Especially invested in education, advocacy, and empowerment, she partners with her patients, helping them work to regain a sense of control over their lives and find meaning and fulfillment, even following a life-changing tragedy or trauma.
Joey received her training and degrees from Northwestern University and Loyola University Chicago and began her career working in the areas of adult trauma and emergency medicine before gaining unparalleled experience in pregnancy loss and infant death.
Prior to joining Wellsprings, Joey served as the Perinatal Loss Program Coordinator at Prentice Women’s Hospital of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, the largest birthing hospital in the state of Illinois and the Midwest. She provided direct clinical care for women and their families who experienced the death of a baby during pregnancy, delivery, or in the early postpartum period. Her passion for supporting these patients extended to the education and training of health care providers, including social work and genetic counseling interns, nurses, medical students, residents, and attending physicians.
Joey has served as a faculty member at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and remains affiliated with Chicago Medical School as she continues education and support of medical students and residents, and volunteer work in community-based clinics.
With over 23 years of medical experience in hospital settings and highly collaborative relationships with multi-disciplinary providers, Joey is well-suited to help patients and families navigate the complexities of the medical system in their pursuit of parenthood, health, and healing. She is available for urgent consultation and individual and couples therapy through Wellsprings Health Associates.
