I’m Teresa Milke MSW, RSW. I’ve been working in the mental health field in Ontario for over 16 years. Over those years I’ve focused on building supportive, therapeutic relationships with my clients, and their families, and working collaboratively with them as well as those that support them to help them work towards their treatment goals.
I’m creative and compassionate in my work with my clients. I often use Mindfulness-Based Interventions and the Expressive Arts in my work, along with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Additional models I use are Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In all cases I use a trauma-informed approach.
My areas of specialty include:
- children’s mental health/parenting
I completed my degrees in Psychology and Social Work through York University and the University of Toronto (U of T). In addition, I’ve completed the U of T Foundational and Specialized certificate programs in Mindfulness and Meditation as well as extensive training in trauma assessment and treatment.
