Julie is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Huntington Beach. She enjoys working with children, teens, and adults who have experienced trauma of all kinds. Trauma can make life feel extra hard; it is not always the big, news-making events. Trauma can also be seemingly small events that stack up over a lifetime. Either way, it impacts the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
Julie’s therapeutic approach reflects her personality – slightly irreverent, forthright, non-judgmental, and hopeful. She enjoys making authentic connections with people because she knows connection can enable healing. She believes there is incredible power in sharing lived experiences and working alongside another person. Most importantly, she is committed to supporting you to find healing at a root level. She knows you are the expert on your own life. While she can provide space and tools to use for healing, she recognizes the true work and accomplishment of healing, of making sense of trauma, is your own.
Julie is certified in EMDR and uses a trauma-informed approach. She holds space for people of ALL (or no) spiritual practices. She is absolutely LGBTQ+ affirming and has experience working with people across the gender and sexuality spectrums.
Julie provides therapy in person Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays while Tuesday is reserved for online sessions. Her office building has plenty of free parking.
