Professional statement

Trauma can shatter your life and cause symptoms like panic attacks, intense emotions, relationship problems, and self-blame. You may also struggle with anxiety and depression wondering if you will ever feel normal again. You're not alone! You can heal from your trauma and reclaim your life with the help of a professional therapist.

Susan Milligan is a licensed and certified trauma-informed counselor based in Little Rock, AR. She specializes in working with clients who have experienced various forms of trauma. She uses Brainspotting (BSP), a cutting-edge technique that helps clients access, process, and release the deep-rooted memories and emotions that are causing them pain. BSP is a proven and powerful method for treating trauma, anxiety, and depression. It can also help clients improve their performance in different aspects of their lives.

Susan also teaches clients practical skills to cope with their emotions, such as mindfulness and grounding techniques. She uses an attachment-based approach to help clients build healthy and satisfying relationships and avoid thinking patterns that can distort their reality and communication. She is a compassionate and supportive therapist who creates a safe and comfortable environment for clients to open up and heal.

Susan’s goal is to help clients achieve lasting change and growth. She believes that everyone deserves to live a happy and fulfilling life, free from the burden of trauma. She is ready to partner with you on your journey of healing and recovery.
