Jessica Milian

Mental Health Therapist, M.A., LMFTA   

Jessica Millan for UMag on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015. (Photo/John Froschauer)Therapy is a powerful investment in yourself. One that honors your courage and resilience by the very nature of being vulnerable and seeking support during a difficult time. As a therapist it is always an honor
to share that space with my clients as I walk beside them in their journey toward growth, self-acceptance, and connection. I do not guarantee the absence of problems, rather I seek to work collaboratively with my clients to find new ways of thinking, feeling, and experiencing that will allow them to overcome obstacles long after therapy has ended. It is my goal to have my clients leave feeling empowered to be the driving forces of change in their life.

My therapeutic approach is to facilitate a collaborative process that actively works with the client(s) to establish and meet their goals. The impact of relationships, community, and societal forces on the client are explored throughout the therapy process. I provide trauma-informed care and am Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Certified. Although my approach is multidisciplinary in nature, I most frequently use an integrated Experiential and Narrative model of therapy. As appropriate, I provide evidence-based practice for the respective clients concerns, which means I draw upon existing research to inform what is known to be most helpful for most people while honoring your unique experience as an individual.

I have experience working with diverse individuals, couples, children and families from a variety of economic, cultural, and social backgrounds. I have supported clients through a wide range of concerns; to include, relational conflict, healing from trauma, behavioral concerns, communication concerns, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and child and adolescent development.

“One of the greatest barriers to connection is the cultural importance we place on ‘going it alone.’  Somehow we’ve come to equate success with not needing anyone. Many of us are willing to extend a helping hand, but we’re very reluctant to reach out for help when we need it ourselves. It’s as if we’ve divided the world into ‘those who offer help’ and ‘those who need help.’ The truth is that we are both.”
