One doesn't discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. - Andre Gide

 

Therapeutic Approach

In times of crisis or acute distress, what we often need most is someone to listen carefully, and to ask just the right questions, as we talk out our problems and discover the solutions that were in us all along. As a psychologist and psychotherapist, Dr. McMillan believes that we hold within ourselves the answers to our deepest questions, and the solutions to our most vexing problems; all we need is some guidance to help us find them.

When Dr. McMillan begins work with a client, he approaches him or her as an individual, with unique problems and concerns. He tailors his focus and approach accordingly, developing a novel therapeutic process for each individual, specifically designed to meet his or her needs. Seldom relying on "talk therapy" alone, Dr. McMillan often helps clients tune in to their emotional and physical experience as additional routes to discovering answers.


The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance. - Nathaniel Branden
