About

Meet our team and find the right therapist for you.

Hi, I'm Julia.

she, her, hers

Do you feel disconnected from yourself and those around you? Do you brave the struggle of feeling numb and overwhelmed at the same time? These feelings are all too common when trying to balance the complexities of human relationships, responsibilities, and life stressors. 

In our sessions we will explore how past relationships and experiences can influence current relationships (both with yourself and others).  I have found we often engage in patterns that seek to comfort us, but in actuality, they can move us further away from the growth we seek. I help clients pinpoint their patterns and rewrite their story, in order to guide them towards the positive aspects of life that they are worthy of experiencing.

I have extensive experience working with older teens, and young adults. I specialize in relationship dynamics, self esteem, depression, ADHD, trauma,  and other issues like perfectionism and people pleasing. I have training in LGBTQIA+ affirmative care, trauma focused modalities, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness practices, and other Strengths Based interventions. I personally find one of the most crucial components to our therapy sessions is our relationship. As your therapist, I seek to foster a culturally-sensitive and nurturing space, led by the belief that each client is incredibly unique.  I don’t rely on a rigid formula, but instead, I like to work with clients to create a treatment plan that is tailored to their needs. Together we will explore goals and expectations for therapy. I offer unwavering empathy, validation, humor, and patience as you face, explore, and work through issues that have often caused you distress. My ultimate hope is to inspire self compassion and growth, as you come out on the other side feeling more fulfilled and connected to yourself and others.

Hi, I'm Nathalie.

she, her, hers

Clients normally describe me as someone that they feel is compassionate and actively interested in their well-being, someone they can trust, and with whom they feel accepted and comfortable around. 

I focus on working with clients dealing with anxiety, healing from trauma, depression, stress, relationship difficulties, and life transitions. I specifically focus on working with teens and young adults.

I graduated from California State University, Long Beach and received training at Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Long Beach as well as at the CSULB Community Clinic. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, belong to the International Association of Trauma Professionals (IATP), and am trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which allows me to help you work on any unresolved traumatic issues and painful past experiences you may have.
