Sandy Milton is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who accepts many major insurances. She has worked in the counseling field since 1982 and been in private practice since 2001. In her private practice, she works with individuals, couples and families in whatever arrangement seems most appropriate to the client’s counseling need.

Therapeutic Style:
My counseling approach is primarily skills oriented, drawing on various therapeutic techniques to teach clients foundational skills in areas such as communication, emotion management, coping, parenting, etc. I also incorporate an educational component, providing information in order to enhance knowledge regarding various issues that clients face. I often include homework in order to make good use of the time between sessions. When desired by the client, I approach their circumstances from a biblical perspective. It is my hope that clients gain from counseling specific tools they can apply to their lives so that they feel they are better equipped to deal effectively with their life circumstances.

Areas of Clinical Experience and Interest:
• Marital/Couple Issues
• Depression
• Anger Management
• Anxiety
• Behavioral Issues
• Children/Families
• Parenting Concerns
• Divorce Recovery
• Step Families
• Grief and Loss
• Domestic Abuse
• Sexual Abuse Recovery
• Faith Issues

Prior to entering private practice, I spent 19 years serving children and families in need, from intensive family preservation services with the nationally recognized Homebuilders program, to foster care case management at various agencies and several years as a Guardian ad Litem through the courts. For nearly twenty years, I provided consultation and led training courses in family preservation and skills building nationally and internationally.

Biographical Information:
I am married and have one (adopted) son, and a stepson and stepdaughter. I have lived and worked in Tacoma since 1984. Besides counseling, I enjoy gardening, outdoor activities, fellowship with friends, hospitality and reading.
