Julia Barry Psychotherapy

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner® who provides psychotherapy to adult individuals, couples, families and mother/infant pairs. I utilize psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, EMDR, Somatic Experiencing® and mindfulness techniques. I specialize in the treatment of single event trauma, complex trauma, dissociative disorders, anxiety, depression, mother/infant bonding, relationship issues, sex and sexuality, and personal growth.


My work is informed by an interest in body/mind psychotherapy including over 15 years of practice and training in yoga and mindfulness.  I am passionate about Somatic Experiencing due to the impact it has had on my own healing and the effects I have seen with my clients.  I also thoroughly enjoy assisting the Somatic Experiencing professional trainings!  I  am currently a session provider for students at the beginning level.


I care deeply about the work that I do and strongly believe in the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship. I am direct, grounded, compassionate and committed to working with you to find new ways of approaching behaviors that keep you feeling stuck in your relationship to yourself, to others and to your purpose.
