Professional statement

Julie A. Kaufman is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor providing telehealth services in MN and WI. She specializes in helping adults and older adolescents experiencing problems related to identity, anxiety, panic, sadness, self-advocacy, trauma, life transitions, and grief.

Julie is a trauma-informed and holistic provider. The foundation of her approach is wellness oriented, psychodynamic, strengths-based, and non-pathologizing.

Julie uses traditional evidence-based talk therapy practices along with the experiential integration of yoga, movement, mindfulness, and artistic expression. The blending of these approaches helps people learn the language of their bodies, the parts of self within, and the connection between the two.

Julie's approach has been influenced by the works and theories of Alfred Adler, Carl Jung, Richard Schwartz, Eric Byrne, William Glasser, Viktor Frankl, Thich Nat Hahn, Pema Chodron, Gabor Mate', Kazimierz Dabrowski, Dan Siegel, Bessel Van der Kolk, Peter Levine, Pat Ogden, and Wayne Dyer; she utilizes Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dance and Movement Therapy (DMT), Creative Expression, Feminist Psychology, Individual Psychology, Narrative Psychology, Somatic Psychology, Positive Psychology, Existential Psychology, and Yoga Theory.

Message to clients

Therapy is the sacred experience of self-exploration and evolution. It is the practice of nurturing and healing the parts of us that have been historically shamed and shunned. It helps us cultivate the art of engaging life from a place of peace, presence, courage, compassion, kindness, and purpose. It includes the examination of the values and beliefs that govern our interactions with the world and then distinguishing the difference between those we actually hold from those that have been imposed or conditioned. It is the process of clarifying what we stand for, what we want, and what we don't; it is the process of freeing oneself ... not fixing. It's learning the language of our bodies, the parts within us, and the connection between the two ... and it is within the therapy relationship we begin to re-author how we experience the events of our lives.

Therapy is the foundational work that helps bring us into alignment with the truest, most organic part of ourselves ... the part that existed before the wounds of living.

My role is to help others navigate this journey of transformation ... and it would be my honor and privilege to join you on yours.
