Julia Schwab

My goal as a therapist is to help you examine the ways in which your history may be limiting your possibilities. Through our work together, we’ll focus on your strengths and accomplishments. In the therapeutic relationship, these personal attributes then become the launch pad for us to discover new strategies for coping, growth, and resilience.

In my practice, I offer both short term and more extensive therapy to people from a wide variety of marginalized backgrounds through an intersectional lens.  In the short term model, we collaboratively target one goal by examining how your thoughts and feelings may be interfering with your daily life. In this model, I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-Focused Therapy. For more comprehensive therapy, we’ll pay special attention to creating a rich and nurturing therapeutic relationship. This sense of safety creates space for you to more deeply name and understand your past experiences and how they affect you now. With this understanding, we’ll illuminate your values and use them to reauthor your story and shape the life you want to lead.

While I am experienced with working with clients with a variety of needs, my areas of specialization include working with adolescents, parents, young adult, LGBT affirmative therapy, those impacted by HIV/AIDS, and marginalized communities. I have worked with disenfranchised communities and the mental health field for over ten years.

Whether you’re looking for support or you are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you. Please feel free to  call or email me to  to schedule an appointment.
