Julieta helps women identify their negative relationship patterns so they can create and experience more meaningful connections. She understands the complexity of cultivating fulfilling relationships and is here to support you through challenges that can arise as you work through previous relational trauma, negative beliefs about yourself, and other obstacles that prevent you from forming authentic satisfying relationships.

With Julieta, you'll always feel welcomed by her warm and caring nature. She approaches each session with genuine curiosity, creating a safe and comfortable space where you can openly explore your thoughts, emotions, and concerns that you may hesitate to share in your everyday life. Julieta's therapeutic approach is tailored to your specific needs, drawing from a range of modalities, including EMDR, to collaboratively establish meaningful therapeutic goals. Together, you'll work towards identifying and overcoming negative relationship patterns, paving the way for more fulfilling connections in your life.

Beyond her role as a therapist, Julieta finds joy in connecting with her friends, family, and her cat Archie, who you may even catch a glimpse of in sessions. Julieta is an avid reader and can be spotted reading on her Kindle no matter where she is in the world. She loves curling up with fun, light YA reads (yes, lots of books about love), including books by Emily Henry, Christina Lauren, and Jean Meltzer.

Q&A

Are you a paw-rent? Tell us about your pet!
I have a little chaotic ginger cat named Archie! She is two years old and brings so much joy (and sometimes stress) to my world. She is an unapologetically boundaried queen, and will make it very clear when she wants cuddles, alone time, or even more food!
If you were stranded on an island, what three things would take with you?
A kindle loaded with books, some Doritos, and a hammock!
How do you describe therapy?
I often talk about therapy as space and time to delve deeper into questions, patterns, thoughts, and feelings that we don't feel there is enough time for in our day-to-day. The hour is for you to take time for yourself, whatever the focus of this hour may look like.
