A Note From Julia

My ultimate goal as a therapist is to assist you in attaining the goals set for treatment to improve your overall health and functioning.  I believe in a combination of therapeutic interventions in order to identify and utilize your individual characteristics to support your success in therapy and life.  Listening to you and helping you understand what you’re feeling, assisting you in looking at your situation in a new perspective will help empower you for a positive change. My approach is client-centered, using evidenced based therapeutic strategies to identify and build on your strengths for positive outcomes and realistic goals met. 

While her office is located in downtown Chicago next to Millenium park for in-person sessions, she also welcomes and serves clients for online therapy from anywhere in Illinois. Clients from the Chicagoland area may choose in-office or online therapy and usually commute from surrounding areas such as River North, South Loop, West Loop, Gold Coast, Old Town, Lincoln Park, Lake View, Logan Square, Wicker Park, Bucktown and many more.
