At Julian & Associates, my mission is to promote, facilitate, and support the mental health and well-being of the community through high-quality and compassionate individual, couple and family therapy.
I understand the destructive power of trauma and the maladaptive skills that are developed through the process of survival. I will work with you to provide the most effective treatment option for your needs.
​Through supportive counseling, I equip our clients with cognitive, behavioral and mindfulness skills to find peace to live authentically with internal contentment and empowerment.
