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
Milena has over 10 years of experience working in support of individuals with significant mental health challenges and their families to be able to cope and move forward to a path of recovery. In addition to the Masters in Social Work, Milena also holds Additional Bachelor Degrees in Social Work and Social Development Studies and a Certificate in Child Abuse Studies from U of W, and play therapy training from Canadian Association for Play 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!
