I look forward to hearing from you and seeing where our work together takes us!

Julia Wakeham, MFT Intern

CLINICAL INTERN
Pronouns:

Julia’s desire to work in a helping profession was solidified after taking a high school psychology class where she became fascinated with which the complexity of the human mind. She decided to pursue further knowledge in psychology while also pursuing her interest in ministerial work. These interests led her to earn her bachelor’s in Psychology from University of North Texas, TX and to pursue her Master of Divinity along with Marriage and Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific Seminary, WA. Thus equipped she hopes to have as great an impact on the world around her as she can, helping people through some of their darkest moments or most challenging curiosities of life.

Hearing her client’s stories and perspectives is what Julia loves most about her work. It is often in the details, sometimes small and seemingly insignificant, where transformative work can happen. As a therapist, Julia has found narrative therapy and a solution-focused technique most helpful and impactful with her clients. Other approaches and techniques she uses are tailored to the client’s needs and goals. Julia believes in collaborating with her clients, the experts on their lives, to best support growth, understanding, healing, and empowerment towards whatever goals are set.

Julia sees individuals of all ages, families, and couples seeking help with depression, anxiety, relational struggles, life transitions, and more. She is also passionate about working with teenagers and those working through spiritual or existential questions or deconstructing some
other areas of their life. Julia is skilled at discerning the spiritual and emotional needs of her clients
and tailoring the therapy she provides.

Those particularly nervous about coming to therapy will find Julia a wonderful fit. Her comfortable, caring, and grounded personality in conjunction with her “let’s get to know each other” conversational approach allows for a disarming environment. While she is intentional, committed, and seriously appreciative of the vulnerable and difficult work her clients come to her to guide them through, she is also aware of the benefits of coming back to a casual conversation and even incorporating some light humor. Having a reliable and trusting connection with her clients is a key element for helping them get the work done.

Julia is bachelor-level clinician and mental health counselor intern. She is supervised by LaDonna Smith, LMFTA (NPI number 1285128330).
