Meet Julia Kaelin: Hello! I’m a therapist at Olive Branch Therapy Group and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I received my undergraduate degree from Seton Hall University and my graduate degree from Rutgers University. I’ve been practicing in the field since 2011.
My Therapy Specialties:
I specialize in working with teens, young adults, and adults dealing with:
- Stress, anxiety, depression, substance use, self-esteem, anger, trauma, abuse, relationship conflict, grief, life transitions, and painful losses.
- I also have a particular interest in working with clients recovering from active addiction. I will assist you in gaining insight into thoughts, behaviors, and feelings to influence choices in life that are aligned with your goals for sustained recovery.
What drew me to this work: I have always been deeply committed to helping others, and several experiences have inspired my attraction to the field of social work. I truly believe that therapy is a process and I feel privileged to partake in creating space that allows you to be the architect of your own destiny.
My style:I offer individualized therapy that is evidenced based and tailored to your specific needs. I create a therapeutic environment that feels safe, non-judgmental, and empathic to improve coping skills, stress management techniques, relationships, and overall well-being. I work with men and women from a client-centered and holistic approach, helping you gain a deeper understanding of thought patterns, emotions, and behaviors that impact your daily routine. This collaborative process increases self-awareness, exposing new skills and insights that enable you to gain inner peace.
Services I offer: In-person individual, couple, and family therapy as well as online video counseling for residents of New Jersey.
