Julia Ward


Perhaps you’ve come here seeking some extra support in your life right now. Stress, painful thoughts, and difficult emotions often indicate you’re at the edge of something—a place between stages, in life or relationships. These stages can be daunting to navigate alone, so this is precisely when therapy can best offer a strong support. In individual therapy with me you’ll find an open and safe place to explore life’s challenges—wherever you’ve been and wherever you’re going. In couple’s therapy, we’ll work to identify the patterns and cycles your relationship might be caught in, and then work further to help you discover new ways to relate with improved communication and a deeper sense of trust in one another. My style is relational, kind, and at times humorous. I’m not the sort of therapist to give advice, nor one who’s silent while you do all the heavy lifting: I listen, ask questions, and attune to what you’re struggling with in the moment.

For couples, I work with EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), a highly successful therapeutic model that 1) focuses on how we relate in intimate partnership and 2) helps build new ways of relating to and seeing one another. I’m also a trained mindfulness teacher—in therapy, I can also offer support for beginning a meditation practice, deepening an existing one, or incorporating mindfulness practices into daily life for greater ease and awareness.

I honor diversity and welcome all. Contact me for a no-charge 15-minute phone consultation to explore how we might work together—I look forward to hearing about you and what you’re looking for now.
