Emotional Well-being
for the
Creative and
the Curious

Being creative and curious means embracing the unknown as a canvas for boundless possibilities.

It can also mean navigating the challenges of uncertainty and emotional upheaval.

Hi, I'm Julie.

I work with those who see the world differently - artists, academics, entrepreneurs, and the perpetually curious. I provide personalized support to help them navigate challenges, foster resilience, and nurture their distinctive perspectives and creative pursuits.

As a psychotherapist, consultant, and fellow creative, my path has led me from classrooms to boardrooms to bustling sets and stages to serene contemplation zones. My diverse experiences provide insights into the hidden struggles and triumphs of the creative and curious journey. With over a decade in private practice and licensure as a Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), I bring advanced training in EMDR, systemic art & play therapy, psychological first aid, trauma-informed care, and micro-expressions. Currently completing a PhD in Media Psychology, I am research how we make meaning from the stories we hear, see, and share.

Taking the brave step to seek support reflects strength and dedication to your well-being. I'm here to honor your courage and accompany you on this journey.

Creativity, Curiosity, and Psychological Well-being 

Creative and intellectual engagement has a deep connection with mental well-being. For those dealing with past trauma, participating in stimulating activities is crucial for resilience and healing. Conversely, fostering creativity and curiosity is enhanced by addressing and overcoming internal barriers, as unresolved trauma can contribute to creative and academic challenges.

I use a mix of conversational and somatic therapies to meet your needs, fostering personal and professional development in any life stage, creative pursuit, or intellectual discipline.
