Hi there, and welcome! My name is Julia and I’m a Registered Psychotherapist with 11 years of experience working in counseling and mental health. I practice a creative, integrative approach that I tailor to each client. I believe that traumatic events (i.e. abuse, bullying, violence) lead to mental health challenges. My approach helps you uncover, understand, and process the awful things that happened to you. As scary as it sounds, talking to a supportive, skilled therapist about your trauma does make you feel better. In fact, my clients often share that they feel less symptomatic, understood and lighter after just one session.

I primarily work with Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and include Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), cultural-sensitivity, Trauma -Informed, and strength-based approaches.
Do you feel overwhelmed? Are you constantly worrying about what you have to do next? Are you having difficulties believing in yourself? Do you feel like you are stuck in life? I have found that these are common concerns that clients experience before accessing psychotherapy. I am here to work with you, at your own pace, to increase your awareness and agency. I believe that the psychotherapy journey begins with being heard, seen, understood, and accepted. From here, self-acceptance, self-awareness, and self-growth are inevitable.

Most commonly, my clients have lived through grief, complex trauma , existential transitions, anxiety/depression, and identity development challenges.
I invite all who're willing to come to the table with an open mind, ready to do the work. You may not have a clear formulation of your specific challenges, needs, and goals (especially if you've never been to therapy before), but you have the urge to make a change and get the sense that now's the time to do it.

I'm queer and I offer trauma therapy rooted in my anti-oppressive and intersectional values.
Our experiences shape us. The residue of the past can stick to us in different ways: feeling numb or feeling so much intense emotion that it's hard to cope; difficulty setting boundaries or struggling to bring people close; feeling unsafe, fearful, and distrusting; self-doubt and shame; having a hard time allowing creativity, calm, and joy. It's so easy to forget that even in the most painful, lonely, and violent moments of our lives, we were growing. I fundamentally believe that we are resilient as hell. We learned to survive! And perhaps survival mode is now getting in the way of feeling truly alive, present, and connected.

The clients who experience the most growth in their work with me are open to approaching their struggles from a new vantage point. They have realized that their usual modes of coping or attempts at resolution in conflict no longer work and are ready to know themselves and their relationships in ways they have not explored previously. The variety of techniques and relationship building methods used in treatment are designed to increase one's sense of self worth, inner peace and development of healthy boundary. Self awareness is a priority, integral to the process of mending past trauma and reclaiming a sense of wholeness, peace

Together we may process issues such as mood, trauma , certain life situations, or exploring opportunities for emotional growth.
**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** If you’re looking through this site, you might be finding that the painful moments in life are difficult to navigate alone, whether those painful moments are a result of a particular event, traumatic experience, or symptoms of various mood disorders, diagnosed or not. You might also be concerned about the ways in which you've found yourself coping, or not coping, perhaps with particular substances or behaviours. Let's work collaboratively to explore your experiences, develop goals, gain a better understanding of yourself and build healthy coping strategies.

Neuroscience tells us that trauma quite literally changes our brains; part of us shuts down to survive.
Each of us has a Story worth knowing. Our life stories are full of triumphs and tragedies, and everything in between. Our stories are meant for great care, that is, we are meant to have compassionate witnesses at every moment of our joy, heartache, or shame throughout our lives. The presence of another kindly contending on our behalf changes us. Our own presence kindly contending for our own heart changes us. Kindness changes us.

I aim to offer therapy through an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and trauma -informed lens.
I understand the feeling of struggling to exist as your genuine self in a world that feels against you, in an environment that feels suffocating, and in a relationship that feels unendurable. Our lives do not exist in a bubble, and our experiences are impacted by the intersecting identities each of us hold. When we reach out for help, we are hoping that someone can understand us and hold space for our stories. I work with people every day who are looking for support in understanding how they can live congruently with their own values and core beliefs.

**Not currently accepting new clients** Experiencing trauma and violence shapes us and leaves us with lingering difficult emotions, so that it can feel impossible to imagine moving through to the other side. Maybe you feel ashamed and you're not able to share your experience with those close to you. Maybe you feel guilty about what happened and you find yourself constantly imagining what you could have done differently. Maybe you feel angry at the injustice of your experience and the impact it has had on your life. I understand. I see you. What happened to you is not your fault.

I have a particular background in working with individuals who have past trauma and are survivors of abuse.
I have a profound respect for the therapeutic process. I acknowledge that every human being has a story, some parts painful, and other parts hopeful. I hope to draw on that hope with you, help you discover your existing resilience, strength, and ability to cope through the hard times and discomfort. I use a tailored approach for all people, because each individual is unique and deserves to be seen as such. Your feelings are valid and I can help you tap into them in a safe space where you will be heard and not judged.

When faced with a challenge or uncertainty, it can take a toll on your well-being, productivity, and self-worth. It can be difficult to talk to your friends, family, or romantic partner about how you are feeling, and finding a safe space can be the first step to feeling like yourself again. I am a registered social worker with over 9 years of experience working in mental health. I am a non-judgmental empath who strives to support and always meet my clients where they are at. I take a client-centered, trauma -focused, anti-oppressive approach, and work to collaboratively create a plan with my clients to help them achieve their goals.
