Julia Rivers is not currently accepting new clients.

I wholeheartedly believe in the resiliency of those seeking therapeutic services and in human beings in general. Whether you’ve experienced abuse in relationships, or other painful disruptions in your life journey, I believe in your ability to push beyond such challenges in order to grow and heal. Pushing beyond such challenges can sometimes be difficult to do by oneself and so one way to ask for help in this process is by seeking therapeutic services.

As a therapist, I use a psychodynamic, relational, and trauma-informed approach to therapy, in order to encourage self-exploration, to notice relational patterns, and to ask “what happened to you,” instead of “ what is wrong with you?”

As your therapist, my goal is to help you move past self-destructive or self-defeating patterns and into a place of self-compassion and empowerment, so that you can get your needs more fully met. We all deserve a place and space where we can come and feel supported while on our journey. I look forward to meeting you and listening to your story!
