Hi! I’m Julie, a born and raised New Yorker. Some unexpected twists and turns have occurred in my life and through these difficult experiences, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve realized that struggles are actually your biggest opportunities for growth. I also understand just how challenging it can be to make a change.
One of my first big struggles began as a teen, when I developed social anxiety. Anxiety and low confidence were barriers that I’ve had to learn how to manage and overcome at different points throughout my life. I’ve grown to view these challenges as teachers in disguise– without them I don’t know if I’d be who I am today.
From a young age, I’ve felt drawn to helping others and to trying to make sense of the multi-layered human experience. My path to become a therapist felt natural and intuitive. Having lived and trained in some of the most diverse cities (including Boston, San Francisco and Manhattan) I respect the complexity of culture and I’m committed to trying to understand each person’s unique cultural lens.
I’m often asked, “What do you do in therapy?” In a nutshell, I help you to get to know yourself in a deeper + realer way. I offer gentle guidance, while empowering you to face fears and dissolve outdated limiting beliefs. And most importantly, I support you in becoming a more confident version of yourself.
My approach to therapy is integrative, blending in Cognitive-Behavioral, Interpersonal Process, Mindfulness and Self-Compassion based techniques. I welcome your feedback, and check in regularly, to make sure that we’re covering what matters most to you.
With compassion and focus, I treat a variety of mental health concerns. Some areas of expertise include: Anxiety, Depression, Social Anxiety, Relationship Problems, Body-Image Concerns, Disordered Eating, Disabilities, Grief & Loss, Mood Instability, Trauma, Stress-Reduction & Coping with Life Transitions.
I especially enjoy helping you to build self-esteem, gain clarity, and to navigate life transitions. I feel honored to be beside you in times of suffering, and I value each time I witness self-discovery or signs of growth. As an adventure lover, I support you in gradually conquering fears at your own speed.
