Juliana (she/her) incorporates art therapy, narrative techniques, and trauma informed practices into her therapeutic approach to facilitate a safe and trusting dynamic with her clients. Her recent experience in a partial hospitalization program with children and adolescents has allowed her to maintain humor and flexibility, which she believes opens the conversation and deepens the capacity for connection and hope. She approaches each client with an inquiring and open mind, hoping to gain understanding, genuine connection, and developing a judgement free zone. Her hope is to use her skills to nurture each client towards acceptance and growth. With a specialization in trauma therapy, she believes in art therapy’s innate capabilities to unite the conscious and unconscious storylines bridging current and past conflicts to bring healing.

Juliana’s experience includes working with veterans, active duty service members, and their families. She aims to process and move through reintegration difficulties as well as traumas related to service, including combat, sexual trauma, and harassment.

She is invested in the twin cities communities as well, participating in the Percent for Art program bringing art to public buildings throughout Minnesota. She currently serves as the Vice President of the Minnesota Art Therapy Association broadening awareness and advocates to expand access to art therapy for everyone.

Juliana graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY with a master’s in Art Therapy and Creativity Development in October of 2013. She holds credentials as both a Registered and Board-Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). She is trained in Motivational Interviewing and has a certificate as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. She was recently published as a contributor to Complicated Grief, Attachment, and Art Therapy: Theory, Treatment, and 14 Ready-to-use Protocols.
