It is not uncommon for those suffering from mental, emotional and behavioral disorders to have a complex set of mental, biochemical, physical and perspective-based issues which compound one another. Robert Milan, LCSW is trained and experienced in numerous effective, evidence-based treatment modalities and can create a program that is tailored specifically for each client. Treatment techniques such as cognitive behavior therapy, hypnotherapy, mindfulness training, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) can often bring lasting relief from these painful conditions.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

He often draws upon other techniques, such as mindfulness training and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), when indicated. Mr. Milan also treats hoarding and obsessive compulsive spectrum disorders, such as compulsive hair pulling and skin picking.
Generalized Anxiety DisorderMany people suffer from chronic stress and worry (the dreaded "What if's...") that lead to persistent anxiety. Treatment approaches such as cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness training and relaxation training usually bring significant relief.
Panic AttacksPanic attacks can occur spontaneously, for no apparent reason, or can be situational, a reaction to specific circumstances. Either way, panic attacks can produce sudden intense anxiety, with symptoms such as heart racing or pounding, difficulty getting one's breath, sweating, lightheadedness, shakiness and fear of losing control. Fortunately panic attacks can respond very well to cognitive behavior therapy & relaxation training, sometimes in combination with psychotherapy.
Robert Milan, LCSW treats a wide array of phobias, including agoraphobia, social phobia, claustrophobia, fear of flying, fear of driving, and animal phobias.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD can be a delayed reaction to many different types of major traumas, including soldiers in combat, victims of violent crimes or serious auto accidents and victims of childhood abuse, among others. At other times, stress disorders can result from an accumulation of smaller stresses that build up over a long period of time. Mr. Milan employs trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness and relaxation training to enable trauma survivors move on with their lives.
