Milbrandt, Timothy J.
Tim is Mayo Clinic Certified Wellness Coach, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist, Approved Trainer for Motivational Interviewing Training New Trainers and Adjunct Faculty – Rochester Community and Technical College.
Tim has worked in the mental health field for 20 years in a variety of areas including outpatient, inpatient, and residential settings. During his time at the Mayo Clinic’s Nicotine Dependence Center Tim has worked in the Treatment, Education, and Research areas. He has received basic and advanced training in Motivational Interviewing including becoming an approved trainer in 2008. In addition to helping patients another one of Tim’s passions is to provide trainings and educational talks for professionals and students. He counts himself as fortunate to have been involved in many professional presentations throughout the United States, and internationally as well as teaching most semesters for the past eight years at a local community college. Tim has long been interested in psychology and science and how to utilize these disciplines in his own life, as well as to help others in their lives. His interest in these areas was stimulated while growing up through watching his mother engage in the study and practice of many alternative approaches to health and wellness, and through being involved in them from a young age. Tim seeks to continually learn and grow in his own life many ways including acceptance and intentional focus. His interest in Attention and Interpretation Therapy (AIT) slowly developed over time through interactions with Dr. Sood, talking with others who have studied it, and his own personal life journey, which has led him here.
