I have been working successfully with depression, anxiety, PTSD, somatic and body image issues since the year 2000. I work in the present moment, attentive to content, process and relational aspects of the session. Aside from talk therapy, I facilitate change through experiential exercises such as meditation, movement, body and somatic awareness, gestalt role play, EMDR and cognitive and behavioral mindfulness. I am interested in how contact boundaries can be restored and built to a healthy state, creating a stronger and confident self.

Many of us begin to wander on our journey through life. We are unsure if our next move is our best move, we sometimes run into detours that change our direction, and often we hit pitfalls that can knock us off course completely. Some are able to struggle through, and others seek assistance with the help of a counselor. A counselor comes into your life as a GPS system, assisting with reviewing the course previously taken and providing you with the tools to “help you help yourself” get back on course towards your desired destination.

Yoga as therapy is a process through which healing can be found in body, mind, and spirit. My name is Julia Romano. I am a full time yoga therapist (MS, 2015) and am trained in clinical psychology (MA, 2013), as well as conflict management (MA, 2011). My belief in yoga as therapy stems from my own experience of its rehabilitative properties; traditional therapies having proved unproductive following reconstructive ankle surgery, I turned to yoga and gained not only the ability to again walk with ease, but also a profound acceptance for the inevitable times in life when we falter.

I focus on empowering you and your family to heal, cope, recover, and grow. My vision is that relationships form the basis for a balanced life. The concept of family therapy is almost simple. The idea is to consider the entire family/community context of how we develop, manage choices, and build relationships. For example, when working with children, I also include parents and siblings along the way. I will often even consider history as far back as the womb, e.g. was your mom anxious or stressed during her pregnancy with you? It is an adventure that you will author.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Washington and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in Washington or for a Washington self esteem therapist, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem therapists in Washington, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem counselors in Washington.
