My name is Julian Redwood and I am a Licensed Psychotherapist.
It is my experience that being human means knowing deep pain, loss and fear. Each of us has such potential for happiness and intimacy, and yet equal potential for despair and confusion.
We are the most advanced and intelligent system in the known world, and yet we barely understand why we feel and act the ways we do. It is understandable given how little training in being human we get. While we are required to take lab classes to understand the workings of gravity and light, there is no class on how to love and be happy. We are not taught how to grieve and cry our hearts out.
Therapy is a psychology lab of you. A place where together we can explore what happens within your world, find where things have gone awry and enable you to have a new experience of yourself and life.
Whether your struggle is big and life-long, or acute and recent, it is my passion and love to join you in coming to understand, feel and live this life as fully as possible. You are the expert on you and I am an expert on the workings of our human psyches. Together let us find the way for you to live this short time as fully as you desire.
Selecting the right therapist is obviously an important decision and I encourage you to be discerning. In my experience it is best to follow who draws you. Although training and experience clearly matter, it is most important that you find someone who feels right to you. Fortunately, following your instinct has been shown to be a very effective, subconscious process.
My words and pictures on this site will give you some sense of who I am and if you are drawn to work with me. As these depictions are inherently limited, it is typically best for us to talk on the phone and ideally meet in person, so you can get a deeper sense of whether or not I am right for you. In order to support your process of finding the right practitioner, I do not charge for our initial meeting if we decide not to work together.
