Julia utilizes EMDR therapy as her primary treatment modality when working with clients.

Julia is particularly passionate about improving the mental health of birthing people and infants. She has deepened her knowledge in these areas by becoming a certified Nonviolent Parent Educator and certified Infant Massage Instructor.
