Meet Julie Fiorenza(she/her)
I am a licensed master social worker (LMSW) committed to providing culturally sensitive, trauma-informed services in a safe, supportive, and collaborative environment. I hold a Master’s degree in social work from New York University and have experience working with LGBTQ+, immigrant, and adopted adolescents, as well as young adults impacted by the criminal legal system. I am available to work with pre-teens, adolescents, and adults who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, symptoms related to trauma, difficulty navigating life transitions, and issues relating to self-esteem, identity, and adoption.
As a Korean American transracial adoptee and therapist of color, I offer a unique perspective and understanding of how our intersecting identities shape our sense of self, interactions with others, and navigation through the world. I also understand the need to destigmatize mental health in the Asian community and other communities of color. I hope to help close the treatment gap for these populations.
To facilitate this process, my approach is holistic, integrative, strengths-based, and person-centered, drawing from psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy as well as mindfulness. My background in the performing arts motivates me to incorporate creative approaches and somatics to encourage self-expression, identity exploration, and healing. Most importantly, I will meet you wherever you are in your journey and tailor my approach to meet your unique individual needs. I look forward to working in partnership with you to help you reach your full potential.
I accept Cigna and Husky insurance and out-of-pocket payments. For out-of-pocket payments, I do offer a sliding scale; please inquire for more details.
Finding a therapist can be a process in and of itself. Because therapy is personal and oftentimes vulnerable, it is important to find someone you authentically connect with for the work to feel safe and impactful. We strongly encourage new clients to “shop around a bit” to find the right fit, which is why we offer this free consultation. It is a casual opportunity for us to meet in person* with no strings attached. You can share with me a little bit more about what’s brought you to therapy, and we can share with you a little bit more about our approach. Hopefully, you’ll then be able to better assess whether or not we are a good fit for what you’re looking for in a therapist.
