Julie Remala-Hanley is a therapist located in Pasadena. She works primarily with adult women and the issues that impact them. Many of Julie’s clients come in to address anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, and maternal mental health. Julie is particularly passionate about serving peripartum and postpartum women as they navigate through the largest transitions of their lives. She also has advanced training in the area of eating disorders.
Julie is trained in psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, compassion-focused therapy, and CBT. In session, Julie focuses on examining the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that have helped clients make sense of the world and how they have impacted relationships with self and others. Julie also works with clients on breathing, grounding, orienting, and paying attention to the body's signals to help regulate uncomfortable emotions. This mind and body approach supports clients in modifying patterns that are causing them distress.
Julie's style is warm, authentic, and direct. When clients first start therapy, focus will be on creating a relationship where client and therapist both feel safe to show up as themselves. Julie strongly believes that the healing power of therapy lies in the connection.
Julie received two Masters degrees from Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology. She has worked at all levels of care as a program therapist and clinical supervisor at Reasons Eating Disorder Center. Outside of private practice, she loves spending time going on adventures with her daughter and husband. Julie currently offers online therapy but will be transitioning back to some in-person sessions when it is safe to do so.
