Areas of Speciality

Julia Gaw is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Art Therapist who has been working with individuals, families, and groups of all ages to help them identify and gain new perspectives on the issues getting in the way of developing fulfilling relationships, self-esteem, and meaning in life. She specializes in issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, grief and loss. She uses an experiential, strength based, and trauma informed approach to therapy to create a safe, collaborative environment for healing. Building on strengths and values, she explores creative and practical ways to promote wellbeing, authenticity, self-awareness, and growth.

Julia utilizes traditional talk therapy techniques as well as art making to empower clients to build on their skillsets to create the changes they desire. Art therapy can be a wonderful tool for clients to find another way to express and explore thoughts, feelings, and experiences without any need for formal art training. Using different art media to express emotions can be a more comfortable and safe way to process feelings and gain awareness that can lead to progress. Art can also be a relaxation and mindfulness tool and can allow clients to access emotions that may be difficult to talk about, as art is a universal language that speaks for itself.

She believes everyone already has all the resources and strengths within they need to flourish, sometimes they just lose sight of them, so she is here to assist in reconnecting with those internal resources that are hard to see during difficult times. As you take the steps on your journey towards healing and resilience, know that you will be supported with compassion, empathy, and acceptance every step of the way, and you are worth it.
