Julieta supports young adults and adults to manage anxiety, navigate interpersonal relationships, and become their most authentic selves. Julieta works from a collaborative, strength-based lens, and will incorporate your personal values and hopes into therapy.
Julieta always brings her warm demeanour, gentle curiosity, and genuine self to each session. She understands the complexity of young adulthood and is here to support you through challenges. She creates a safe space where you feel comfortable exploring thoughts, feelings, worries, and patterns that you might not share in day-to-day life.
Julieta uses therapeutic approaches such as emotion-focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and other therapies to support you. Julieta also includes psychoeducation in sessions, which gives you the knowledge and vocabulary to express what you are feeling. Most of all, Julieta makes sure that you are at the forefront of the goal-setting process. Julieta is a passionate advocate for accessible mental health care and reducing the stigma of seeking support. You can expect Julieta to be fully present and meet you where you are.
Outside of her life as a therapist, Julieta enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and her cat Archie (who you may catch a glimpse of in sessions). Julieta enjoys unwinding by reading, crocheting, and speeding through new Netflix releases.
Julieta can provide sessions in English and Spanish.
