Steve Milan, LCSW
After 18 years of doing this work, I continue to be amazed and awed by the power of it, and by the honor of sitting with people as they find their way to a new way of relating to themselves and their world. I am committed to learning something new each day from my clients, my supervisees, and this work.
It has not been difficult to meet this commitment. I operate from a view of therapy as a process of “assisted self study” (in the words of Ron Kurtz, see www.ronkurtz.com). From this view, the client is the expert on his or her experience. The therapist’s role is to develop experiments which can help the client find his/her experience from a place of mindfulness and compassion. This process can often to lead to information or awareness that neither client nor therapist could have known independently. Therefore, therapy is a process of connection and co-creation which impacts all involved.
I have studied Alaya Process, Hakomi therapy (see www.hakomiinstitute.com), and Systems-Centered therapy (see www.sct-institute.org) among others. Each offers its own gift to an understanding of our humanness. I have also studied mindfulness practices and mystical traditions from varied spiritual paths. These also inform the work.
I serve adults and couples in individual therapy, group therapy and workshop formats in my practice. While I utilize a variety of models in this work, all are predicated on the importance of compassionate awareness, safety, relationship, experience, and a growth orientation.
My rate per session for individuals and couples is $130. Rates for group work are group-specific. I am not a provider for any insurance companies, however I will provide a receipt upon request so that clients can seek reimbursement.
Of note, my counseling services are offered through the original Sol company, Sol Associates, PLLC. Intake paperwork and additional information may be found at the primary Sol Associates website, www.therapistaustin.com.
