Life’s most difficult experiences can provide seeds for change. On our own, it can be challenging to see their potential. When given a safe space and tools, we are best able to plant these seeds and cultivate meaningful growth. As an individual therapist, I aim to create a non-judgmental, authentic, and warm environment to grow and harvest insights and build skills to better navigate life experiences. I often work with emerging adults and those experiencing life transitions. I also support those experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and/or the impacts of trauma.

Feeling overwhelmed and run down? Looking for a space to help sort through stressors and finally make a change? Unsure of what to do next or how to make a meaningful change? People often enter therapy feeling anxious, depressed, confused, or unsure of how to deal with a change or loss. Therapy can be a place to explore feelings that are too hard to share with others. I believe therapy offers a safe environment to express yourself freely, deepen your understanding of yourself, and make positive long-lasting changes in your life. Clients enjoy having a space that is dedicated just to them to process their emotions.

Julia saw the huge demands on parents, sought to understand the hopes they have for their children and the hopes children have for themselves. In doing so, she has become a partner with parents, kids and families to reduce the stress of the therapy experience.

Therapy is a significant step towards discovering your true self and to understand the issues that shape and block you from leading a more authentic fulfilling life. Through the context of a trusting relationship I will work with you to uncover your goals. Symptoms are messages of blockage and unbalance our way of trying to cope. Understanding the message behind the symptoms and getting past them is part of the work and require a gentle challenging partnership. I focus on attachment history, values and experiences that have shaped who you are. I work with adults of all ages and diagnosis's.

What type of Evanston mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Evanston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
