Tend the garden of your soul

It feels good to grow!

I have tools to make the demons not so big or scary

All the parts of you are invited...

We will follow your deepest inner wisdom

Come sit and talk to me

Are you feeling stuck in patterns you’d like to change? Do you know you are not quite your fullest self? Are doctors not giving you the solutions you need for your health? Are you using food or other comforts over and over to feel better, but not feeling that great most of the time? Would you like some help with some difficult things that have happened in your life, if you knew it would be effective, and you wouldn’t be talking and talking about the same painful stuff?

Perhaps you like the idea of getting help that quickly addresses the root causes of your concerns and gives you palpable shifts every session. I am an expert in trauma and its long term effects. If you grew up in a chaotic, alcoholic or addicted, controlling, abusive or neglectful household, it has affected many parts of your life. I can help you deal with the effects on your body, health, relationships and self-esteem.

Even more importantly, I can help you connect with goodness, love, spirituality and the things you enjoy  most about yourself, and life, in a powerful and lasting way. My work has developed since the late 1980s based on following the cutting edge of psychology, science and spirituality. I have been in self-pay private practice in Boulder since 1993. Every session has to be effective for my clients to keep coming back, and the majority work with me long term. My focus has been to continually learn what is the most effective way to help people get free of pain, and connect more and more deeply with their unique expression of the life force.

Come talk to me, and you may find, like most people I’ve worked with, that you want to keep coming back and feeling lighter, stronger and more and more like your real, true Self. Try a session, so you can experience cutting edge psychotherapy, and I predict you will feel relived and hopeful and want to come back for more shifts and openings! If you’re not sure you are ready, you can also subscribe to my blog and learn some tools to use on your own and wait until you feel ready. I’m also happy to see you for just one or a few sessions if you have something very specific to clear as quickly as possible. Call, email, or text and we can schedule a session or a consult if you have questions not answered here. If you don’t live in Boulder, no problem! A lot of my clients enjoy the comfort of doing their sessions from home via Skype.

What is Multi-dimensional healing?

We can enter into a beautiful, natural altered state of consciousness in which healing and guidance flow at the highest and deepest levels. We can work with physical, emotional and spiritual imbalances and you can reconnect with your Soul’s deepest wisdom and True Nature. You don’t have to travel to another country to dive deep into another realm of healing through the ground of Being, the Source Field, pure, spacious awareness, or however you like to language it.

What’s going on with my overeating?

The big challenge with food is how easy it is to misuse without pausing to think about. Food is so available and enticing and such a big part of life, it's really easy to use it unconsciously for emotional reasons. One of the key issues is understanding the difference...

Help for panic and anxiety

Here are a variety of ways to help yourself under stress. It may feel like your body is not your friend if you are anxious or panicky, but the trick is to work with it, not to fight it. Grounding in the body, particularly the lower body is a natural way to settle the...

Mindfulness and psychotherapy

Mindfulness has become a real buzzword in the field of psychotherapy these days. The reason why is that it allows therapists to help clients access the deeper layers of their psyche without having to be trained as a hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy was developed at about...

Comprehensive and loving

Our work together has raised my quality of life consistently, supporting me to develop my own sense of spirituality and self and work through my life’s toughest challenges. Julisa teaches a huge range of tools, which have helped me to heal and given me support on every level- physical, emotional, spiritual and financial. I’ve overcome many things including big struggles with addiction. I’ve consistently learned how to value and care for myself better and have healthier relationships. All along, Julisa has held such loving space for me, and been so committed to my happiness these last few years, without which I’m sure I would have lost faith.”

-C. B., Golden

Walks her talk

Julisa has guided and supported me in the work of deep transformation. I am much more peaceful, free, and empowered in my day-to-day life from having been her client. She is patient, gentle, intuitive and very skilled. Julisa’s high level of integrity and commitment to her clients’ growth and health is rare. Her lifelong commitment to her own growth comes across in her work and has inspired me. She is truly “walking the walk.”

– M. J., Boulder

Lots of tools, which really helps!

Julisa has worked with us to learn tools for dealing with emotions in a productive and positive manner and being able to communicate about important things. We have found EFT to be very helpful and making it through one of the hardest years of our lives. We use NVC techniques a lot to avoid fighting and have more productive conversations. Julisa has helped us understand ourselves and each other and break out of a negative cycle that is damaging for our relationship and the kids.

-N. Lafayette

More integrated and accepting of others

“I have become more aware of personality types which has allowed me to really understand friends, co-workers and family members on a much deeper level. I am so much more compassionate, professional and have more real relationships with these people. Julisa is a kind, compassionate, non-judgemental therapist. We have worked through both current and past issues, thought patterns, and personality traits to the point where I am increasingly more aware and able to solve my own negative patterns. My entire being is much more integrated and accepting of myself and others.”

– Tracy, Niwot

Changed my life

To say Julisa has changed my life is an understatement. She has helped me heal wounds which felt so deep I thought I might never recover. I have let go of codependent relationships and feel happier than I have my entire life…I finally have the skills to get through this life.”

-L.F., Parker

No one compares to Julisa

After 37 years of failing at dieting, and over 20 years of morbid obesity, Julisa helped turn my life around. I’ve tried getting help from various kinds of professionals over the years for both dieting and emotional/relationship challenges in my life. No one compares to Julisa. Her compassion, experience, and directness coupled with the specific techniques she uses are profoundly effective. So far I’ve lost 60 pounds, and for the first time in my life I feel confident about losing the rest of my excess weight. And more importantly, I am not worried about it coming back. I am changed. Not just my relationships with food and my body, but with others. I am starting to live the life I want and not the life I felt I had to lead. I am truly grateful to Julisa and recommend her to anyone who needs to make changes in their life or needs support in dealing with life’s challenges.”

Jenn, Louisville,

Just what I needed

“I just wanted to say thank you for my session on Friday. I had no idea what to expect but drove home smiling the whole way. It feels like that was just what I needed before my surgery tomorrow. I also wanted to tell you how impressed I was with your work. I was honestly stunned by your ability to keep your emotions completely out and allow the entire space for your patient. I have been to many therapists, doctors and healers and am not sure I have ever come across someone so capable of stepping completely out of the way and just allowing the space for the patient. That really is a gift.”

– Chrissy, Boulder

I feel strongly understood

“I’ve had thirteen therapists in my life (I know, I know), and I can definitely say that Julisa is the best. I’ve been able to get down to the core of my work relatively quickly and make major progress after a major emotional bottom. I appreciate her holistic multi-modal approach: nutrition and exercise, meditation, cognitive work on thoughts and beliefs, grief work, body-centered work on trauma. Brainspotting combined with talk therapy is a good combination for me. Her intuition is pretty amazing. There have been several times that a question or comment of hers led to a huge insight on my part. I feel strongly understood by her–a pretty rare experience for me.”

Johnathan, Boulder

Always growing as a therapist

“One thing that distinguishes Julisa from so many other therapists is that she is constantly learning new theories and techniques and keeping up on current research. What impresses me the most is how quickly and deeply she incorporates new ideas into her work, so that she is always growing as a therapist.”

Sally, Boulder

Life changing....through a deeper connection with my Self

My work with Julisa has been life changing. I have learned to regulate my emotions and set firm boundaries through a deeper connection with my Self. I love her mind/body approach. Talk therapy has never really cut it for me and through various body- and heart-centered techniques, she has helped me connect with, and learn to love, myself so much more. This has in turn helped strengthen my relationships, my productivity at work, improved my sleep, and most importantly, has strengthened my connection to my Self, which I was lacking for so long. I am eternally grateful to her for the changes that she helped me make in my life.
– K, Boulder

passion for helping you reconnect with the Divine

Julisa has a passion for helping you to reconnect with the divine and helping you to feel the flow and presence in your body. This has brought me healing, light and release. She helped me understand how that awareness of presence and flow can surround and hold my everyday experiences physically, mentally and emotionally, and not be just one-off experiences. Through brainspotting,, breath work and guided meditation, I have cleared stored up pain, anger and sadness. This work has helped me to feel lighter and happier outside of therapy, allowing chalenges to serve as opportunities for personal growth and as a catalyst for drawing even closer to God.
– H, Boulder

Acute dedication and deeply perceptive guidance

As I have been met with one devastation after another over the past 4 years, Julisa has been with me every step of the way. I have no doubt in my mind that I would not be here today if it had not been for Julisa’s commitment, expertise, empathy, and genuine desire to understand exactly what I have been going through with each new challenge I have had to face. No matter what the circumstance, Julisa has had ideas for ways to help me work with my situation and my pain. She has consistently been able to see the real me that has endured behind all of my loss and suffering, and with her acute dedication and deeply perceptive guidance, I am coming out the other end of this feeling even more like myself.
K, Boulder

Dedicated to her own spiritual practice and inner work

As teacher and therapist, Julisa addresses my whole self, body/mind/spirit, leading me to discover more authenticity, wellness and meaning in my life. Her insight, compassion, intuition and whole-hearted presence are rooted in the dedication she brings to her own spiritual practice and inner work.

Will my insurance cover therapy?
Seeing me means that you will have to deal with your insurance company directly; I am not in any insurance networks. I can give you a receipt for your sessions to submit for out of network reimbursement. The best way for you to answer this question is to talk to your insurance company directly and find out what your counseling benefits are.
How many sessions of therapy will I need?
To be honest, this is pretty much an impossible question to answer. The reason why is because it has so much to do with you. Therapy is “brief,” which means six sessions or less, when a person has a very narrowly defined issue they want to resolve. People can have as little as one session when they want to resolve something very specific, such as a fear of making left turns. The issue is that how long therapy takes has to do with your history, including what healing work you have already done. For example, a fear of left turns which is associated with a serious car accident would take several sessions to resolve. However, if it is associated with an underlying anxiety condition and panic attacks, resolving that could get into deeper work with childhood issues, or diet, or other larger, more complex issues. Without knowing about this kind of background and your capacity to enter into mindfulness and access your own internal experience, I couldn’t give you an answer. The closest I could offer is to give some estimate after one to three sessions.
How quickly will I know if therapy is working?
The type of work I do is very oriented to getting to the bottom of issues as quickly as possible. This is why I have a 15 question intake form. Clients normally experience a shift in each session, and feel differently (and normally better) as they leave the session. You should be able to tell within two or three sessions if it is a good fit for you and moving in the direction you need to go. You are encouraged to ask questions and bring up and concerns you may have.
How do I know if this is the right type of therapy for me?
I have a lot of information on this website about what kind of therapy I offer. My focus is to be able to get to the roots of issues and bring healing at the deepest level. This is why I work primarily with the unconscious mind and the deeper layers of the body, including the gut and the nervous system. I encourage you to read what I have written about the techniques and methods I use, and if it resonates, try a couple of sessions. That should give you enough information to get a sense of if it is a fit for you.
Do you offer a sliding scale?
I offer a 10% discount for making a commitment to a regular weekly time. I find that is the most powerful and effective approach. This means that if you come every week, not missing more than one session, the tenth will be free. I mostly work with people longer term, which means at least six months, and often several years. I enjoy doing really deep work and seeing powerful and exciting changes in people’s lives. It means a lot to me to really care about my clients and give them much more than they were expecting. So, I like to make therapy affordable in a sustainable way. I don’t overfill my schedule with more people than I can see every week. This is a very effective structure for maximum benefit from counseling. I really enjoy working with people who are serious about their goals, and are committed to the process.
Take the next step!
