Amy Millikin, BHC, MS, CADC I
As a behavioral health consultant, I will aid patients when habits, behaviors, stress, trauma, or emotional concerns about physical, mental, or other life problems interfere with overall healthy life. While working with your Primary Care Provider (PCP) I evaluate the mind-body-behavior connection to provide brief, solution-focused interventions and help determine a course of action that will work best for you through brief counseling and referral process.
I graduated from Grand Canyon University and hold two degrees: Master of Science in Clinical Counseling, Substance Use Disorder, and Master of Science in Psychology. I am also a certified addictions counselor.
I possess a comprehensive understanding of the unique needs of individuals with mental health issues and substance use disorders, I am well-versed in evidence-based treatment modalities including medication management, counseling techniques, and behavioral interventions. My primary approach to counseling is an integration of person-centered, mindfulness-based, and cognitive behavioral therapies. In essence, this integrative counseling approach strives to balance mindful awareness, a genuine and empathic relationship with patients, and a collaborative effort at identifying what changes a patient can make to minimize emotional and behavioral disturbances.
As a behavioral health consultant, I have the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives. My work at LCHC will improve the mental and emotional well-being of individuals, families, and my community.
