Co-author Jeff Miller values working with patients with chronic pain and illness. Through his expertise, he is able to help his clients cope with the many aspects of chronic illness and offers a variety of techniques and proactive utilization of gifts and skills from areas of strength adapted to areas of challenge.
Jeff's interest in chronic illness has become a sub-specialty, blending his pragmatic counseling with the individual's spiritual perspective. Jeff's goal for his life/work is to reduce suffering and help others live to their true potential. Jeff's mantra is, "If you want courage as your companion, do it now, do it even though you judge that courage insufficient because it is a diminishing thing, like water held in your palms. You will never be this brave again until the next time you face this. Then you will see (as you have seen) the smallest action is mightier than the noblest intention."
He is grateful above all for the trust of thousands of people in pain and for the nourishing unconditional love of his family. Jeff also gratefully acknowledges the guidance of many colleagues, especially his first boss who taught him which end of the horse he did not want to be.
