About Julie Seden-Hansen, LMFT, LPCC
Joining with you on your healing journey!
I am a seasoned therapist that has worked with individuals of all ages, families, couples and groups. I have trained over two dozen therapists and have seen how each therapist is different and has something to offer. What I think are my gifts are to hear what the problems are and help the client feel better and make changes. I like to have fun doing therapy, even if we are doing hard work. I have seen even one session make a huge difference in someone's life. Sometimes just talking out loud about something with someone besides yourself or others in your life makes a huge difference. I also try to be straight to the point. I began as a therapist in Women's Shelters and often we did amazing work in one or a few sessions. And we never knew how long a client would be there before they might relocate or go back to a difficult home environment. So, I developed a style that was quick and to the point AND deep and meaningful. That is what I try to do. Of course, sometimes we have time and don't have to rush. I still like to rush, lol. Why not feel better this week? Healing is not just something "out there", it is here and now. And, sometimes there are layers and much to do that also helps. But let's find the foundation quickly to feel better now, as we look to do the deeper work as well. And let's enjoy that road, because healing is natural. We can trust it.
About me. I have been married for 28 years; we met in college at University of California, Santa Cruz in the late 80's. I have two sons, both in college (law school and undergraduate). I have spent too much time on Netflix. I used to read A LOT, and am now trying to revive my 100 Great Books Project, but found myself stuck on Les Mis. I have an in-person practice in Paso Robles, and because of COVID I discovered on-line therapy is awesome too- so I am expanding that because it is fun to work from home some of the time.
I am so excited to have Eric Burke, AMFT, APCC and Morgan Stong, AMFT, join my practice and it is so much fun. They are terrific therapists and I am honored they have chosen to work with me as they are finishing their hours for next steps in their careers. I've supervised a lot of therapists over the years and only work with therapists that I consider the best. Kind, smart, thoughtful, grounded and great professionals- I learn so much from them.
