Georgette Milla is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. (LMFT). She has been a practicing partner in the Fig Garden Counseling Center in Fresno, California for 25 years. Her practice includes military personnel, school teachers, law enforcement, couples and individuals.
Issues in her personal life, the loss of her marriage, and the death of two children brought her to this profession. Over the years, Georgette has seen that when clients have shifted their negative thought patterns they become empowered to make positive change. She has developed a unique technique of reducing psychodynamic concepts to simple hand sketched cards which outline essential coping tools to enable a healthy approach to reprogramming.
These therapeutic “Coping Cards” have served her many clients successfully over the years as they carry them in their pockets or purses and read them daily. This process assists in the implementation of positive change.
Georgette’s clients report when using her “Coping Cards” they become less reactive in conflict and are more aware of their tone in communications. Because her clients frequently request more and different “Coping Cards”, she has decided to make them available to everyone.
The primary deck of Georgette’s Coping Cards covers general issues. Decks of cards addressing specific areas can be requested, i.e. Anger Management, Codependency, Divorce, Grief and Loss, Intimacy, and Self Esteem.
