About Mila:

Updated: Mar 7

My name is Mila, and I am a person in long-term recovery from Substance Use and Trauma. I spent years looking for the right therapist and treatment approaches to meet my needs, and it was through my personal experience that I identified several key elements to a sustainable recovery. Once entering recovery and healing, I decided to put myself through school to become trained and certified in many evidence-based therapeutic approaches, in order to be able to help others with similar stories to my own.

Today, I specialize in a number of evidence-based approaches including Substance Abuse Counseling, Trauma Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, Life and Wellness Consulting, Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction...because these are the things that worked for ME! I also pursued licensure as an Acupuncturist and Reiki Practitioner (Energy healing), because I strongly believe that our mind and body are connected and must heal together.

There is no straight-forward path to good health, this is a non-linear process, and my goal has always been to help people find the parts of themselves that they can learn to love. A building cannot stand without a foundation, and I can't do the work for you, but I can help you pour that foundation for a better life. I have now been working in the field of treatment for Substance abuse and Co-occurring disorders for over 7+ years, and I have had the pleasure of working with individuals from many differing backgrounds, and of a wide variety of ages.

In 2021, I also began a career facilitating classes called CRAFT (Community Reinforcement And Family Training), a therapeutic evidence-based program for parents and family members of a loved one struggling with Addiction or Mental Health. these classes offer skills to improve relationship, communication, boundaries, self-care, to motivate change and to support a loved one struggling. I found my niche for working with parents and families of teens and young adults, and committed with full-force to helping people on the other side of the disorders. If your loved one is suffering, there are things YOU can do, and I am here to help guide you!
