Julia Baum is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Brooklyn, NY specializing in working with adults in their 20s and 30s as they navigate the challenges of depression and anxiety. With a background in the arts, Julia has a deep understanding of the ups and downs creative people face. She welcomes a wide range of creative professionals and entrepreneurs to her practice.
Julia has extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), a form of CBT. Her sessions are goal-oriented and solution-focused. She teaches clients how to problem-solve in the moment, increasing understanding of their thinking patterns and how these thoughts trigger unhelpful emotions and behaviors. Clients learn how to respond to these thoughts in a helpful, logical way instead.
Julia is a creative thinker, and skillfully draws from both the most up-to-date therapeutic research and ancient understandings of mindfulness to help each client engage with their most authentic self. Her office is located in Williamsburg, a short walk from the Marcy Ave subway station.
