St. Louis, MO – Dr. Catherine Milner has over 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist in America, specializing in couples, family, and child therapy.
“My work is focused on anyone from ages 3 to 103” says Dr. Milner. “In my work I do not assume the role of “expert” in other’s lives but acknowledge each individual as the expert in their own life”.
In the most non-judgmental way possible, Dr. Milner’s plight is to respect each individual’s unique subjective experiences. Dr. Milner believes that the source of meaning is “not in me, nor in you, it is in the interaction between the two of us”. Implicit in this flowing connection and exchange between people is the importance of valuing other people’s individual ways of making sense of their world.
Dr. Milner replaces the word “problems” with “puzzles to be solved”. She says that everyone has “problems” but the people who come into her office are often using the same solutions over and over again and these solutions have become “a puzzle” because they are not solving anything. By working creatively together it becomes apparent that there are an infinite number of solutions available and if one solution does not work there is always another that can be tried. This promise of opening the door to feelings of hope lies in the introduction of accepting that multiple possibilities can exist.
Dr. Milner’s mission is to create a safe holding environment where an individual can feel connected and sense trust.
