A Message from Mileva

Life – with all its beauty – is filled with adversity. Struggles can be seen as opportunities to recognize our potential. My role is to provide you (and your family) with unconditional support, genuine empathy, honest feedback, and expertise in counseling, while also maintaining clinical relevancy. My focus is to model healthy boundaries, demonstrate skills, and provide a safe environment that offers the opportunity for a collaborative relationship. My aim is to assist you in clarifying your own beliefs and values to implement change and meet your desired outcomes. I believe it is important for counseling to be a learning process in which you feel empowered to learn, grow, and practice skills. This process promotes a better understanding of how the link between thoughts and feelings is related to personal behavior, which ultimately leads to the development of adaptive coping skills. I strive to emphasize individual and collective strengths and build a therapeutic alliance that promotes vulnerability and growth.

I offer a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing techniques, an experiential creative process (e.g., art, play, sand play), and when appropriate, an existential approach. You can expect the counseling process to be focused on your strengths and individualized to meet your unique needs. You are the expert and author of your life; my role is simply to help navigate the path you are on during our time together.
