Julia Akins is a therapist that is focused on equipping her clients to become curious about their experiences. This process provides space for unpacking their stories to be able to provide healing and healthy lives for their future.

Julia’s work with her clients is rooted in a person-centered approach with a trauma-informed lens. She customizes  her work with each client by using: Existential-Humanistic Therapy, Experiential therapy, Emotion-focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Somatic experiencing, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Psychodynamic theory.

Clients describe Julia as having a settled and safe presence while providing room for humor and playfulness along the way. She specializes in healing family wounds, grief and loss, recovering from childhood trauma, substance abuse, and life transitions.
