Hello there! I’m Julia, a dedicated and compassionate therapist with a passion for mental health and healing.
I recently obtained my Masters in Social Work from Augsburg University, and am a pre-licensed therapist. I hold five years of experience in various roles within the field of social work from direct client work (CTSS skills, case management, group work, parenting education) to therapeutic practice (1:1, family, couples therapy). I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to my practice.
My approach is rooted in a holistic, person-centered, and strengths-based perspective. I believe in empowering individuals at all stages of life, and I welcome clients from diverse identities and backgrounds. Creating a safe and inclusive space for healing is a priority for me, as I strongly believe it enhances the overall quality of life.
I’m available to provide therapy for Spanish-speaking and bilingual individuals. I am dedicated to breaking down barriers and ensuring that language is not a hindrance to accessing quality mental health support. Services can be provided in English, Spanish, or both.
In my practice, I employ an eclectic theoretical orientation, drawing from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, systems, and humanistic approaches. This allows me to tailor therapy to the unique needs and goals of each client, fostering personal growth and positive change. I believe we all deserve healing. Whether there is processing needed for the past, or the present, I want to provide a space where you feel comfortable and safe to be a human, with all of your emotions and experiences.
If you're seeking a compassionate therapist who will walk alongside you on your healing journey, I'm here to support you. Together, we can work towards a brighter and more fulfilling future.
“It's not wrong to be upset. It's not wrong to cry. It's not wrong to want attention. It's not even wrong to scream or throw a fit. What is wrong is to blame and punish yourself for simply being human. What is wrong is to never be heard and to be alone in your pain. Share it. Let it out.”
