Counseling

Are you at a crossroads and going through some big changes in your life right now?

Are you struggling with anxiety, grief, or overwhelm?

Do you sometimes work so hard in your relationships that you lose track of your own needs?

You may be reading self-help books, going to yoga, and treating yourself to a massage now and then. But all this self-care may feel like a temporary balm, and it might not be enough right now. You may need some support in letting things get a little messy for a while, talking to yourself in a loving way, and growing the emotional strength you need to make hard choices and reclaim your own life.

I’ve been supporting women through the ups and downs of their lives for over 20 years. In addition to holistic, mindfulness-based counseling, I teach self-healing tools you can use on your own to supplement our work together. Depending on your interests, we may incorporate some meditation, breathwork, hypnotherapy, somatic awareness, walk & talks, or other traditional healing tools. 

It’s not always easy to tell your story to a new person or to make a commitment to weekly psychotherapy. Some of my clients do come weekly, but others choose to come every 2-3 weeks, or on an as-needed basis once we have established a working relationship. I believe in empowering women to trust their own intuition about the support they need. It’s about what works best for you. 

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

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!
