Milena Urbanajc - MSW, RSW
Registered Social Worker - Psychotherapist

Therapist, Counselor, Milena Urbanajc, MSW RSW

My goal as a therapist is to help you identify your strengths and what may be holding you back in life with regards to meeting your full potential. We all aim to live life to the fullest, but sometimes there is something that may be holding us back, and this is what we aim to work out in therapy

As we make our way through the journey that is life, there is so much that happens which shapes our perspective, our sense of self, and how we relate to ourselves and others within our environment.

Sometimes there is loss, whether loss of a significant other, relationship, pregnancy, employment, illness, loss of self through the experience of trauma, that can affect the way we feel or act. By taking time to examine our lives, we begin to create opportunities for growth, momentum and transformation.

The transformative aspect of therapy is one of the possibilities! It is amazing the insight which can be gained, and the pathways for opportunities created. In therapy we work together to assess your life journey, and create new goals for growth and healing. I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities depending on the need and benefit of the client. I am here for you!
