No matter how overwhelmed you may feel, change is always possible. I am here to support you through some of life’s hardest and scariest moments. I want to work with you to uncover the patterns that may be keeping you from living the life you desire.
For over 16 years I’ve had the honor of working with people as they navigate the layers of gender, sexuality, culture, and race that shape their everyday experiences. Given that LGBTQ individuals are twice as likely as the general population to experience a mental health condition, and trans folks are four times as likely, it’s crucial that mental health care is culturally inclusive.
I know firsthand what it’s like to experience non-lgbtq+ affirmative care and the negative impact it can have on one’s life and self-worth. My experience of falling through the cracks as a queer teen sparked an immense passion for empowering disenfranchised communities through an intersectional lens. My style is warm, down to earth, and engaging.
I received my Master’s of Science Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from California State University, Northridge. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Registered working with individuals and couples in California.
I would be honored to work with you.
“We loved our experience with Julia. We are looking forward to reconnecting with her when we’re back in California but she was able to meet us where we were, help us plan for the next few months, and we absolutely loved working with her. She was direct, kind, to the point, and read us like books. We are very grateful.”
