Therapy with Jules
Not Accepting New Clients At This Time**
What Will We Do?
I do not offer typical "talk therapy." The predominant modality I use is EMDR mixed with IFS ("parts work"). Why IFS? We have distinct parts of ourselves that many of us reference without even realizing it (“I want to stay in, but a part of me wants to go out”). Each part has their own set of character traits and perceptions of the world, which can result in that feeling of inner-conflict and overwhelm, especially when those perceptions are at odds. Those warring parts have developed due to trauma and attachment wounding, which can be traced back to specific memories that these parts feel stuck in. During EMDR these parts tend to pop up and IFS can be used to help liberate them from those painful memories.
How Will We Do It?
While staying connected with each other, with a sense of curiosity and creativity, my clients and I go on an inner-adventure to work with old memories and discover parts of themselves that need attention and healing. From an attachment-based framework, I use EMDR with the help of Internal Family Systems (IFS).
Is It Right For You?
EMDR and IFS work best for those who have a good set of coping skills (usually having been in traditional therapy a while), a relatively stable support system, and are ready to start working through trauma.
I understand that systemic oppression adds daily trauma to our lives— counseling shouldn’t add to that trauma, but it often does. I will continuously strive to honor and maintain a sacred space for you in counseling through a commitment to social justice, cultural humility, education, and honest self-reflection.
**Surgery Letters of Support
Though not accepting new clients for ongoing therapy, I am continuing to offer assessments/evaluations and letters of support/referral for gender-affirming procedures.
A Note About Insurance
I only accept OHP (through CareOregon). For private insurances I provide "Superbills" to submit for out-of-network reimbursement. If affording therapy is dependent on reimbursement, please check with your insurance provider to see if you have an out-of-network deductible.
