About

It is possible to move towards greater satisfaction, freedom and power in this life time. I am comfortable sitting with heavy emotions when my clients face and integrate painful parts of their past in the name of greater stability and peace. It's important to also feel progress, find the rays of hope, and keep a sense of humor as we face the darkness. No one really escapes the existential pain of BEING. But we are in this together and can find relief. I treat many ailments including trauma, anxiety, depression, and difficulty in relationships. I work with individual adults and teens as well as couples and families.
I take a developmental approach to learn my client's strengths and identify where healing and growth can occur. I work relationally and collaboratively. Together we find practical solutions for change. I specialize in an approach called Psychomotoric Therapy which is a mind-body method focused on breaking habits and restoring balance.
I would be happy to talk with you on the phone or do a video char to answer questions, get to know each other and feel out if my services are what you are looking for. To schedule a free 20 minutes consultation, please email or give a call! I am now offering in person sessions now in Oakland! Virtual sessions are still available for those who prefer it.

Julie Waters's Groups

Time-Out: Effective Stress Reduction

Our world today is so fast paced, with so many obligations, expectations, and rapid changes happening daily. Not to mention the tension on a global level both politically and environmentally. I offer a 1.5 hour group each week where you will practice effective relaxation skills that target your nervous system and mind. Time will be provided to debrief and get personal support. I will lead the group through physical and mental exercises that calm the mind and body. All exercises are accessible to all body types and physical abilities. This group is forming- time and date dependent on participants

More about this group

Virtual Quarantine Wellness Group

Everyone is experiencing the quarantine uniquely: Extreme isolation, crowded homes, overwhelm of working and/or parenting from home, loss of income, feeling directionless or antsy, or enjoying a type of stay-cation from daily life. For everyone, it's an opportunity for reflection and looking inwards. We will: Share experiences, learn techniques for stress reduction, grounding, and focus, set small intentions, and self-reflect on internal ah-ha's, and areas we wish to grow. I will: use group discussion, writing prompts, and teach somatic and mindfulness activities to support wellness and growth during this time. Sliding scale available.
