Counseling for Women, Moms, and Families

Julie Kotler, LCPC, LCPAT, ATR-BC


Are you dreading another day of shuffling kids, prepping meals and not having any time for yourself?  Is being a mom leaving you feeling lonely, empty, and lost?


Are you a mom struggling with parenting, transitions, confidence, low self-esteem and feeling overwhelmed?


​Women have to balance family, sense of self, and finding purpose.  It is really easy to lose your center and many women feel stuck.  


Together we can explore ways to feel better in your own skin.  I can offer strategies to help you rediscover joy and connection to the person you used to be.  We will also explore how past difficulties have made an impact on your current issues and how we can use those struggles to make constructive changes in your life. You can feel better, more balanced and comfortable being you.


I tailor my approach to you specifically. I help you using mindfulness, cognitive and behavioral interventions, talk therapy, art therapy, attachment and relational strategies, and trauma informed care.  Also, my therapy dog Cooper will be with us in the office most days-
