Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
Meet Julie Herzlinger, LICSW
I provide individual therapy to college students, adults, aging adults, and individuals of any life stage experiencing caregiver stress. My areas of specialization and focus include working with those struggling to navigate life transitions, feeling “stuck,” experiencing relationship and intimacy problems, self-esteem issues, adjustment to illness/caregiver stress, as well as grief and loss. I also have extensive experience working with individuals with trauma histories and PTSD, anxiety disorders, and mood disorders. I am primarily a psychodynamic therapist. I draw from my training in various types of therapy, including relational and strengths-based approaches, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to most effectively meet the needs of the individual.
I earned my bachelors degree in Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania. Following several years working in NYC, I then obtained my masters degree in social work from New York University in 2007. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including community mental health centers, youth programs in under-resourced communities, nursing homes, clinical programs for individuals with dementia, and private practice.
My Approach & Philosophy
My integrative approach and my warm nature allow me to work collaboratively to address clients’ distinct histories, needs and goals. I work with clients to help examine ineffective patterns and reflect on what is preventing them from living life the way they intend. I appreciate your interest in working with me and look forward to connecting to begin this process. Together, we will work to best determine how to confront that which may be inhibiting your ability to feel fully engaged in your life.
