She has a special interest in adjustment issues, including cross-cultural adjustment, and has presented her research on the topics of anxiety and interpersonal problems at international psychology conferences. 


Milica uses evidence-based therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness, with an empathetic and client-centred approach.


Milica is a fully registered Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), a Clinical Psychology Registrar and member of the Australian Psychological Society.
