Counseling

Do you sometimes try so hard in your relationships that you lose track of your own needs? Do you often feel anxious, constricted, or worn out, and you’d really like to take better care of yourself?  I help women who are ready to make some changes to feel good about who they are and where their life is going. I take a mindfulness-based transpersonal approach to counseling. I believe that just talking about a problem is not enough; we need to also engage the body and spirit. Counseling sessions with me are practice-oriented, as we integrate heart-centered conversation with other self-discovery tools such as meditation, walk & talks, hypnotherapy, and guided self-healing practices. I am here to support you as you connect to the strength inside yourself. More important than any particular modality we use is that we create a space where you feel like you can be yourself and that anything you are going through is welcome.

LOCATION: The Peace House, a private office/healing space in south Austin (78745). Remote phone sessions are also available.

FEES: $125/hour

AVAILABILITY: Daytime 8:30am-2:30pm Mon-Fri, Evening 6:30pm-8:30pm Mon-Thurs, Weekend 12pm-4pm Sundays

Note: I see no more than five individuals a week so that I can maintain a healthy equilibrium in my own work/life balance. My individual client time is sacred to me, and I take the utmost care to make sure we are a good fit before we begin.

TESTIMONIALS

My whole experience has been relaxing, nourishing, and rejuvenating. Since working with Julia, I’ve had situations that before would have felt really triggering, and I am not so reactive. Situations are either resolving themselves, or I am able to move through them and talk about them calmly. It has really helped! Julia is a beautifully skilled practitioner, and I am very thankful.

I can’t even begin to tell you how helpful Julia was. She helped me get clarity on the direction I want to go in and to trust that path. I feel immensely better!

Julia’s presence is dynamic, compassionate, and healing. This work has been a paramount piece in my personal empowerment.

I find Julia to be nurturing, supportive, grounded, and insightful. When I talk with her, I uncover areas I know need to shift. Then when we work with meditation and hypnotherapy, there is a deeper way to change my wiring so that I can embody those shifts. As someone who easily overthinks things, this feels easy, powerful and light!

My experience working with Julia has been relaxing, revealing, and meaningful. Julia has helped me realize I have a place inside me to go to when I am anxious or worried. I now have clear and easy ways to care for myself, and I am excited to keep doing this work.

I decided to try hypnosis, but was a little nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. Julia did a great job making me feel comfortable and letting me know that I was the one that was always in control of the experience. Afterwards, I felt real release and calm. And the best part is that I have been able to access that peace in my daily life. I would definitely recommend working with Julia, especially if you don’t always take time for self care!
