Announcement icon Offering HIPAA compliant telehealth sessions for individuals with or without insurance. Also a provider with Teladoc Health and Betterhelp,
We are living in changing times. Our lives require a different set of needs than those of the generations before us. Seeking psychotherapy is not easy. Many individuals before their first session experience rejection, shaming, blaming, and hurt that can not be described in words. You deserve to experience care from some one who is worthy of hearing your story. You need a place where you do not have to defend your value, or be diminished. We are here to help.
Belonging is something that many of us are looking for. Healing our pain in isolation can feel overwhelming. Especially, when we feel unheard, ignored, and disrespected in our homes, at our places of employment, and in the relationships that matter the most. We all want a place that feels safe.
At Roots Seeds and Branches, we listen without judgement and hold space for your transformation. Using empirically supported research, We provide care that values every part of you and respects where you came from. You deserve the life you want. Contact us today.

Professional Connections

In addition to being a warm and caring person, Julius Jessup Peterson is an exceptional therapist! His insight, intuition, curiousity, intelligence, humor, and compassion for others fuel his commitment to helping his clients grow, heal and change. He is constantly working to hone his already impressive therapeutic skills in order to better serve his clients. As a colleague, he is helpful, supportive and generous with time and clinical advice and I feel confident referring clients to him.
