Shanta Milner, LPC, NCC

“Are you feeling sad but are too ashamed to tell anyone about it? Do you feel like you have to force yourself to smile and appear happy, but inside you’re feeling depressed or anxious? Do you feel completely caught off guard when anxiety hits you more often than you can count? Perhaps you’re surrounding by people in your environment who are envious of your life, which makes you feel guilty about not enjoying it. There is a reason for your sadness, symptoms of anxiety, and guilt, and I want to help you discover what these reasons are. I help people feel less anxious about taking the necessary steps towards change, and I would love to teach you these tools as well.

The tools that I will provide you with are tools that I have been using for quite some time to help people just like you. My goal is for you to have at least five different tools that you will carry with you at all times to manage your challenges in life. I am eclectic, which means that I utilize multiple evidence-based treatment approaches to address your presented concerns. We will work collaboratively, in a nonjudgmental and safe space, in which I will never force you to talk about anything that you are not quite ready to talk about. I can handle anything that you do want to address, as I am trained to do so. I can help you explore different paths towards becoming empowered and having a healthier mental health. If I need to challenge you towards growth, I will do it from a gentle approach and only when It provides an opportunity for growth.

It is my strong belief that everyone can change and grow at any point in their lives. Although we may not have been given a choice at certain things in life, we do get to have a choice in how we chose to respond moving forward. Behaviors are learned from things that we picked up along the way (parents, peers, social/school environment, etc.), which can either be healthy or unhealthy behaviors. My role is to teach you how to unlearn the negative behaviors and replace them with healthier ones. If you feel like you are ready for a change, I want you to contact me so that we can work together to create a better life for you.
