Professional statement

Julia Fletcher is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist in New York. She specializes in relationship issues, sexuality and gender identity concerns, life transitions, and grief. Julia is sensitive to issues of race, ethnicity, and multiculturalism, and how they intersect with other identities and circumstances.

Julia specializes in working with new, expecting, and would-be mothers to process the journey of early parenthood. She also has expertise in working with emerging adults, which she cultivated in her former role as a staff member at Columbia University's counseling center.

Julia takes a warm and collaborative approach to treatment. She strives to create a safe environment in which clients are able to face life's challenging moments and painful emotions. She is a strong believer in the potential of each individual, and uses a strengths-based approach in her work to help clients make tangible progress toward their goals.


Message to clients

I know it can be hard to get started, especially when you may already feel lost and exhausted. You are not alone. I approach the process of therapy with warmth, curiosity, and compassion. Together, we will develop a trusting connection that allows you to feel comfortable being yourself. Therapy can help you experience more joy and ease in your relationships with partners, friends, or family members, and to come out of sessions equipped to move through challenges and uncertainties with confidence.

I have extensive experience using evidence-based techniques to work toward your goals. Over time, we can help you attain the skills and clarity needed to make the choices that align with your true needs and values.

I identify as an LGBTQIA affirming provider, and my approach is rooted in anti-racism and social justice.

I offer online therapy, affording you the convenience to attend your sessions from your own home or office.

If this interests you and you want to learn more, please feel free to contact me for a consultation.
