Dr. Mihlon is a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience in healthcare. She was drawn to the study of psychology when she was first introduced to Carl Rogers' Client Centered Therapy in high school.
Dr. Mihlon draws on the foundational theories of humanistic psychology which involve empathy, unconditional positive regard, and authenticity as well as existential psychology, believing that people's lives have purpose, value, and meaning.
This theoretical foundation, combined with her work experiences, education, and clinical training, have led to a collaborative approach to treatment with her clients, and the incorporation of other therapeutic approaches and theories such as process-experiential, emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioral, neurobiology, and somatic theories as well as mindfulness and yoga.
Dr. Mihlon has particular interest in treating other health care providers as well as treating grief and loss, and women's issues.
