Iola therapist Kari Miller uses puppets, toys and games to help children and adults process their emotions.

When Iolan Kari Miller wanted to start a private therapy practice last year, it was her daughter, Bethany, a sixth-grader, who shifted into the role of therapist to help Miller find the right name.

“Well, Mom, what do you want people to feel when they come to see you?” Bethany asked.

“I want them to feel a little playful, even if they’re adults. I want them to feel safe and I want them to feel secure.”
