My Approach to Helping
Firstly, congratulate yourself on getting this far in your journey to begin therapy. My name is Julie White and I am a CA Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and NBCC National Certified Counselor. I started my counseling career working at non-profit inpatient settings with individuals struggling with dual diagnosis including substance use, PTSD, eating disorders, and psychosis. I later transitioned into an outpatient setting where I now work with individuals who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, life transitions, and trauma.
I truly believe that therapy is a journey and that the counselor and client must work together as a team for the best outcomes. I believe that each individual is an expert in their own lives, and that I serve the purpose of providing a safe space to explore, learn, and work towards whatever goals there may be. In addition to my humanistic approach, I am well versed in modalities including acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and narrative therapy. I look forward to working with you and beginning your unique journey.
