I am licensed by California's Board of Behavioral Sciences as both a Marriage and Family Therapist and a Professional Clinical Counselor. I earned a Master of Arts in Psychology with a dual emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Clinical Counseling from Brandman University, and completed the 3,000 post-graduate-degree internship hours required for licensure. Prior to the above, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Applied Arts and Sciences in Business Administration and Accounting from San Diego State University. I am also certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have completed specialized training in Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I am qualified to deal with a wide range of issues that can affect one's life, family, work, academics, and relationships with the self and others. Throughout my career, I have helped children, teens, adults, couples, families, and groups heal from emotionally painful pasts, work through current crises, and create successful futures. My Experience In my current private practice, I help clients improve their relationships with themselves and others, cope with and adjust to life events and transitions, and take empowered action to create success, forward momentum, and positive change in their lives. BACKGROUND Prior to my current private practice, at College of the Canyons' Student Health Center, I provided individual, couple, family, and group therapy, as well as crisis intervention, and mental health education to students, faculty, and the local community. I helped students with many issues affecting their mental health, including anxiety, family conflicts, adjusting to college life, learning disabilities, homelessness, and physical, emotional, and sexual assault. To ensure the best treatment possible, I often collaborated with career counselors, nurses, nutritionists, social workers, psychologists, teachers, and many other professionals at College of the Canyons, Academy of the Canyons, California State University Northridge, and Los Angeles Unified, Hart, Saugus, and Castaic Union School Districts. In addition, I co-founded the Autism Social Alliance (ASA), a social and therapeutic group for students on the autism spectrum. The group provided a safe environment for students, friends, family, and community members like police or professors, to come together to learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorders and how we as a community can provide better services and lessen negative stigma. At New Directions for Youth, a non-profit organization for youth and families identified as being "at-risk," I provided group and individual therapy, crisis intervention, and faculty training relating to substance abuse, gang affiliation, physical and/or sexual abuse, school failure, early pregnancy, or juvenile delinquency. At Tarzana Treatment Center, an inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, I provided individual, couple, family, and group therapy, as well as crisis intervention and faculty training. I led multiple psychoeducational and process groups, including those for grief and loss, relapse prevention, coping skills, healthy relationships, parenting, domestic violence victims, and domestic violence perpetrators. I also worked closely with the Department of Mental Health (DMH), Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), the justice system, medical staff, and many others for the benefit of my clients.
This content was provided by Julia Young "I am a compassionate, dedicated, and attentive therapist, committed to helping my clients reach their highest potential for health, happiness, and success. My style is collaborative, flexible, and objective, and I give my clients the time, emotional space, and nonjudgmental environment they deserve. Additionally, I work from an Integrative theoretical orientation in order to accommodate the unique needs and various communication, learning, behavioral, and working styles of my clients.
With flexibility still in mind, I do see powerful and lasting results from certain theoretical orientations more than others; therefore, with individuals, I work mostly from Psychodynamic, Humanistic, and Cognitive Behavioral perspectives, while still borrowing from Client-Centered, Adlerian, Emotionally-Focused, Solution-Focused, and Narrative based principles. In working with couples and families, I tend mostly to employ Gottman Method, and Bowenian, Strategic, and Structural Family Systems approaches"
