Hello, I’m Linda Milewski. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and addiction specialist for 15 years. I hold a Masters in Social Work (MSW) and international certifications in addiction, employee assistance, and coaching. Additionally, I am trained in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, as well as Mindfulness practices.
After nearly two decades in inpatient psychiatric units, recovery facilities, mental health agencies, and wellness centers, I have helped stabilize clients suffering from crisis, addiction, trauma, and mood disorders. I developed a keen interest in various types of symptoms that create behaviors most would consider detrimental to their lives. As I travelled extensively internationally, delving deeper into the causes of suffering and addiction, I began to understand more deeply what “suffering” means and how we can heal from it. I began looking at the client as a “whole organism” by exploring how the body and its nervous system becomes severely compromised over time stemming from chronic stress. I have learned that when the body is relaxed through certain techniques, there is no room for stress or trauma to be held.
My approach with each client is to provide support, accountability, and structure that honors and helps clients to step out into post traumatic growth. Through Solution Focused Brief Therapy, CBT, DBT, and coping skills, I have truly begun to see transformations in my clients as they experience a strong feeling of overall safety and well being.
I look forward to going on this journey of healing and self discovery with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Linda Milewski. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Linda is the most empathetic and invested therapist you could wish for.
My sessions with Linda have been very helpful for me to help cope and navigate through life. I find her very engaging and very easy to talk to.
My therapist is great and has been a key part of my personal growth.
As I have said in the past, I find it particularly interesting that these frequent reviews focus solely on the performance of my therapist, and not the company or layout of the service you have provided... because it does have faults.
Hopefully you will make an effort to investigate more.
Very professional with a personal touch. Has really helped me alot in multiple ways but a long way to go :)
She is my all time favorite therapist. Guided meditations prior to therapy helps me to relax. Linda is always educating herself on new ways of teaching and she passes along her knowledge. I highly recommend Linda Milewski and I’m grateful I finally found a therapist that actually continues her education.
A fellow pilgrim is the best guru, and Linda embraces the human role of being a pilgrim.
I really think Linda is a totally wonderful, caring and compassionate therapist. She really looks to approach me with respect to my points of view and ideas. She is an excellent listener and I would strongly recommend her to anyone else. However, I am currently panicking because I can not remember when my next session is and I am stuck on this window until I respond. Please change this feature better help.
Very pragmatic and analytical, good for "brainy" people who are interested in psychology and technicalities. Linda can connect observations to literature and science.
Compassionate and kind, I would recommend Linda to anyone looking to examine their own thoughts and feelings.
Linda is such a great therapist, she makes me feel comfortable and I’m truly so grateful that she has helped me with my journey. She has already helped me through a lot and I always look forward to speaking with her
First visit was awesome. Looking forward to the next meeting!
Linda is just amazing. Very caring and loving person with lots of experience
She’s very understanding and responsive
I have only seen Linda 2x so far but so far it's going well. She listens and offers insightful points and good resources for me to continue whatever we discussed in session.
Love her feedback! The sessions with her were really helpful!
