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.

Therapist's note

We currently only accept credit cards and some HSA for payment. We do not accept insurance. ​

We also accept Loveland Theapy Vouchers and Mental Health Fund (MHF) for QTBIPOC Vouchers.

We don’t work directly with insurance companies, but you may still be able to use your insurance to cover some of the cost of our services. This depends on whether you have out-of-network benefits, which means your insurance will cover part of the cost of seeing a provider who is not in their network.

To make things easier for you, we use a payment app (Thrizer) that does all the paperwork and billing for you.


Use Thrizer to pay the full fee, and wait to receive reimbursement for your covered benefit for free.

Or pay 5% convenience fee and only pay your co-insurance. Thrizer will bill your insurance for the rest (i.e., if you have 80% coverage, then you pay 20% of your session fee and we bill your insurance company for the other 80%). ​
