Message to clients

Hello, my name is Dr. Nekolas “Neko” Milton, I am a Registered Psychological Associate. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I operate from a client-centered, humanistic approach, focusing on aspects of existentialism, mindfulness, family systems, multiculturalism, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy while keeping careful consideration of cultural concerns and practices. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, and trauma-related diagnoses, and incorporate evidence-based practices to address maladaptive patterns and behaviors.

A question I often get asked is, “What do you mean by, ‘meeting your clients where they are at’?” In my work of helping people, I strive to subscribe to a compassionate and collaborative approach. This means that the client is part of their own treatment team. Thus, meeting the client where they’re at means embracing a variety of therapeutic interventions.

I am committed to working towards social justice and equity both within the therapy room and within the community at large. Thus, my values are consistent with providing care around acculturation, mental health access, concerns for underserved populations, community building, and cross-cultural dialogues.
