Professional statement

Julia Mooney is a licensed master social worker and psychotherapist based in midtown Manhattan near Grand Central and Bryant Park. She treats older adolescents and adults of all ages seeking a greater understanding of their interpersonal dynamics and themselves. Julia is passionate about working with deep thinkers and feelers, members of the LGBTQ+ community, couples seeking a healthier connection, and people who are in or nearing moments of transition. She offers in person sessions.

Julia draws on psychodynamic and person-centered theories in her practice. She believes that therapy is a powerful tool to uncover deeply rooted internal and external influences, address maladaptive patterns of thought and behavior, and nurture strengths. She approach clients with curiosity and kindness while challenging them to confront important truths and take steps toward meaningful change.

Julia received her MSW from the New York University Silver School of Social Work. She was trained in psychodynamic therapy at Rose Hill Psychological Services.

Message to clients

If you’re reading this, it’s because you are ready to engage in self-exploration. Maybe you want to address a challenge of some kind: relationship struggles, inertia, unhealthy patterns of behavior or thought. Maybe you’ve experienced a change or a loss that is stirring up anxiety, sadness, or both. Maybe you've been living with pain for so long you don't know where to begin. It can feel at times like we are hostage to negative thoughts and circumstances. But we don't have to be.

I offer a safe space for you to examine your core thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and to address whatever is impeding you from realizing your full potential. Diversity of all kinds is welcome; I embrace the uniqueness of each person's heritage, experience, and self-expression, and look forward to hearing from you.
