Discover a path to clarity, confidence, curiosity, and courage within yourself and your relationship. If you're feeling trapped, powerless, overwhelmed, fearful, angry, withdrawn, anxious, or depressed, know that change is possible. Utilizing Gottman's time-tested techniques, I'll guide you to deepen understanding and connection, improve communication and friendship, teach you how to navigate conflicts constructively, and foster the resurgence of intimacy and trust. Approaching your unique journey with empathy and understanding, we'll tailor a plan to suit your specific needs and goals. I'll equip you with invaluable tools, insightful questionnaires, and actionable steps to reinforce our work beyond our sessions. Together, we'll embark on a transformative journey towards a healthier and more fulfilling relationship. I've trained in the Gottman Method for couples therapy through The Gottman Institute and I'm featured in their Gottman Referral Directory. I offer a wealth of insight and support to individuals and couples alike, fostering hope, growth, and meaningful change. I'm a mom of two amazing teens, an avid reader and believe we should never stop learning and growing. Additionally, I serve as an adjunct professor at Rutgers University Graduate School of Social Work, where I teach clinical practice to aspiring professionals.

Why state matters


Get to Know Julie

""Julie has been a wonderful help to me. She is compassionate, insightful, dependable, and particularly skilled at collaborating to decide on healthy, appropriately realistic and ambitious goals, developing next-step actions to reach those goals, and checking in on progress forward to reach them. I also appreciate her abilities to recall what we have discussed previously and to steer conversations into the most productive areas. I happily and unreservedly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a facilitative partner in learning about themself and in finding good paths to positive developments in their life.""

William H., NYC, Client

""I could not have asked for a better experience than I had with Julie. Initially, I was very upfront in what I was looking for in my sessions and she helped me work through what our sessions would look like. She was very engaging and helped me understand issues as they relate to my life in light of my culture. I appreciated how she not only helped me understand the issues on the surface but provided resources to dive deeper and work through my subconscious thought processes.""

Fatme M., NYC, Client

""Wow. thank you so much, I really needed to hear these things even though I think I knew this deep down. I wanted to say thank you for encouraging me to be strong and true to myself." "

Bethany D., NYC, Client

""We're so proud of how far we’ve come and that we did the work to get here! Thank you Julie for your guidance!""

Marissa & Damian S., NYC, Client

""Julie is the kind of person that listens to what you’re saying and hears what you mean. With a gentle, kind and sensible approach, Julie has helped me work through the past, present and future. She has taught me so much about navigating through difficult situations, but also how to embrace and acknowledge the good ones! I am so thankful to have met Julie.""

How will our relationship be different than relationships I have with friends/loved ones?

Our relationship will be different than those you have with friends/loved ones because we will focus on you, what brings you to therapy, your relationships, your history, how you feel, how you respond and relate to others, what you need, and your goals. My questions and curiosity about you will help us both to understand you better and will offer an alternative perspective for you to consider.

Where did you work before going into private practice?

Before I entered into private practice, I worked at The Center for Marital and Family Therapy and the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in Manhattan.

How can you tell if I am benefiting from working with you?

I can tell if you are benefiting from our work together by your engagement in the process, you show up each week, ready to share and to explore, your curiosity about yourself, increase in self awareness, and self reports on how therapy is helpful to you.

Do you assign homework, activities, or readings for me to do between sessions? Why or why not?

Sometimes I encourage writing or journaling, focus on breath or mindfulness, and share books or articles I've read that I believe will resonate with you.

How can you tell if I am feeling stuck, unseen, or unheard?

Often times if a client is feeling stuck, unseen, or unheard they may be quieter than usual in session, unsure of what to talk about, or cancel or not show up for a session. The best way to work through feeling stuck is for us to just talk about it. Its great practice for your relationships outside of therapy too!

How much do you share about yourself during our time together and why?

Our time together is primarily focused on you however there are aspects of who I am as a person and a therapist that you will come to know, rely on, and trust throughout our work together.

How participatory are you during sessions?

I am an active participant in our work together. I will ask you lots of open ended questions to get us started, explore the history of the issues you bring in, and help us to both understand you better. I will point out patterns of reactions or behaviors that no longer serve you or contradictions that I hear and challenge you to try new approaches as we expand your tool box.

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

If you have never been to therapy before, you should expect that it is far easier than you fear. If you are exploring this website, you are obviously curious about therapy and wondering if it might be helpful for you. The easiest way to begin is to schedule a complimentary phone consultation. If you feel comfortable with our first phone meeting, we will schedule our first appointment to meet via Zoom.

How do you approach diversity in the room or working with clients who may come from a different background than you?

I am open to and curious about learning from clients who come from diverse backgrounds; understanding our similarities and differences and how it informs our thinking, our emotional responses and our relationships.

How long should I commit to being in therapy, at least in the beginning?

In the beginning it would be most helpful to commit to therapy for at least six months to a year. Therapy is a relationship, it takes time to build and as our therapeutic relationship grows the work will deepen.

How should I prepare for my first session with you?

Think about what led you to therapy, why now, and what you hope to get out of it. I'll lead the way with the questions to get us started.

What is the best part of the work for you?

The relationships I have with my clients are the best part of the work for me. I enjoy getting to know them, watching them learn about themselves and make positive changes in their lives and relationships.
