Julia Barry - Psychotherapist

I care deeply about the work that I do and strongly believe in the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship.  I am direct, grounded, compassionate and committed to working with you to find new ways of approaching patterns and behaviors that keep you feeling stuck in your relationship to yourself, to others and to your life’s purpose.  Choosing a therapist is a decision that takes consideration.  I welcome you to explore how I might support you. – Julia

Julia’s practice is LGBTQIA affirmative.

If you are seeking therapy, I regret that I am not accepting new clients at this time, and my waitlist is closed (Winter/Spring 2022). I’m afraid I am unable to provide specific therapist referrals at this time. You may reference the therapy directories offered by the EMDR International Association, the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, or Somatic Experiencing International.

I am still available to provide personal sessions for credit to students in the Somatic Experiencing professional training and consultation to EMDR practitioners for EMDRIA certification.  Please feel free to reach out to inquire about these services.
