Ashley Wilkins, LCSW
To better get to know Ashley, here she is in her own words:
I care deeply about supporting those who are struggling and accompanying them on their path toward healing. Healing is about more than just surviving, it’s about thriving; and it can take time and extra support to get there.
As a social worker and therapist, I am honored to join in people’s healing process while leveraging their strengths and building supports around them. As your therapist, I work together with you to help you get from where you are to where you want to be.
My therapeutic style relies on authenticity, empathy, and trust to provide a supportive environment for growth and change. I approach therapy as a collaboration and offer a space that is trauma-informed and free of judgement, recognizing the value and uniqueness of your life experience.
My specialty is in issues of grief and loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, parenting, identity exploration, and overall life transitions. I work with all ages but have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families; and have provided therapy in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, and community mental health centers.
Ashley is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Her Master of Social Work is from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Community Development from Portland State University in Oregon.
Fioralba (Fio) Millon, MA, LPC, NCC
Get to know Fio better here through her own words:
While seeking help can feel daunting, it is the first step of breaking through the negative cloud of despair. I meet you where you are in your life’s journey, and I consider myself a “fellow traveler.” I help you gain insight, provide perspective, and collaborate to determine the best course of treatment to regain direction to your journey’s destination.
I provide a safe space so that you can share your story and move towards personal growth. Part of that safety is offering services in Spanish if you prefer, rather than English. The foundation of my therapeutic approach is strengths-base, culturally sensitive, and meaning-oriented. I also integrate pluralistic elements, multiple theories, and perspectives, to best fit your needs.
Whether you are dealing with anxiety, anger, depression, trauma, self-esteem, or other life’s hurdles, I consider it a privilege to assist you in getting over them. I look forward to being a part of your better journey.
Fio is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She earned her Master of Arts in Counseling from Northwestern University. Fio also earned her National Certified Counselor (NCC) credential.
