Pronouns: She/Her

Julia holds BA degrees in psychology and social work from University of Maryland Baltimore County and a MSW degree from Salisbury University. She is a Licensed Masters Social Worker (LMSW) under the clinical supervision of Kate McShane, LCSW-C.

Julia is licensed in Maryland and West Virginia and is able to offer telehealth sessions for clients physically located in those states. In-person sessions are at her office in Frederick, Maryland.

Julia is a queer, fat, white cisgender therapist whose approach is holistic and anchored in the person-centered values of genuineness, empathy, connection, and positive regard for her clients. She operates from an intersectional social justice, sex-positive, LGBTQIA+-affirming lens that acknowledges the individual and collective trauma that can come from living within a marginalized identity. Julia seeks to uplift and hold hope for those she works with and believes strongly in the ability of all people to grow and heal.

Prior to completing her MSW degree, Julia worked in a variety of community mental health settings which allowed her to develop skills in crisis intervention, suicide assessment, and case management. These experiences helped form the perspective that many of the people who seek mental health services do so because of experiences with marginalization, trauma, adverse childhood experiences (ACES), and systemic oppression.

Julia enjoys working with adolescents, adults, and families for a variety of mental health needs such as anxiety, depression, trauma, dissociative disorders, and co-occurring substance use disorders. Julia believes in the importance of mindfulness, and expressive arts as means for healing and incorporates these perspectives into her practice when possible. Julia has training and experience with dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) group facilitation. Julia recently completed level one training in EMDR therapy and is looking forward to expanding her use of this modality in her practice.
