I believe that one of the most important factors for most people is to feel understood and heard. As a MFT and a LPCC working with individuals, couples and adolescents, I provide a safe and trusting environment. I take into account that everyone is different and comes from a different background involving it's own issues and your perception of it. I have been trained in many evidenced-based practices and have been in practice since 2007. I am bilingual in Spanish and I will provide treatment to help you make sense of the feelings and behaviors that you are experiencing and have had throughout your life. Using family systems, cognitive behavioral and other techniques as needed at any given time in your treatment. I employ active listening, interacting with you and inquiring you to share as a way to sort through your emotions, and behaviors in their present and past context. As a result you can gain more insight and a better understanding of you emotions and behaviors. In working together in a committed fashion, I am eager to guide you to your desired change and personal growth for the future.

I love working with Julia, she's so smart and proactive, and her approach always keeps me thinking and by answering her questions I can exhaust all the avenues of a problem I need to solve. She provides me with lists of important things to read for further understanding, guides me through online exercises of discovery, etc. I'm sure there is more to say like she's kind, empathetic, and much more.
Julia Gunderson has really changed my view on therapy, I never was fond of the option. But she made me feel comfortable and safe from the start. She explained all I needed to know, made me feel at ease. She then helped me find ways of breaking down my problems, working on each of them one day at a time. Her advice and help has changed my life. I feel like a stronger and better person because of her. Would recommend to anyone.
Julia has helped a lot.
I have been seeing Julia for a few weeks now and she is really awesome! Her messages are always full of support and understanding and added guidance to help you be your best self not only you but your loved ones. I feel supported and understand it makes it that much easier to talk to her so glad I have a great counselor it makes a huge difference.
Julia was a tremendous help, it was like night and day! Strangers no longer give me crippling anxiety & I feel like myself again. She showed me that small steps will lead to big changes. I will be recommending her to everyone I know that is having a hard time dealing with the stress. Thank you Julia for deciding to be a counselor, you've truly found your calling!
She is gifted at what she does. She gave me the coping skills I needed to deal with things better. At first, I was embarrassed to share my story, but she was very professional and made me feel comfortable. I opened up more than I thought I would. Julia is amazing!
Very sweet lady!! Knows what she is doing and is attentive.
She is very kind and understanding and catches on very fast.
