Hi! I’m Julia Salas and before I give you a long history of my experience, know that I will work with you so you will be able to wake up each day knowing you are a superhero in your own life. But most importantly, to love yourself. It's not always an easy road but it can be done!
Are you ready to make the changes?
I have almost 15 years of experience in psychology and mental health counseling in clinical and community settings. I have vast experience treating:
It’s not about getting over it, it’s about empowering you to take charge of your life, to live in peace and joy.
We all try a lot of things to stop the feelings of depression and anxiety. I bet you’ve tried to do it on your own, talking with friends and family (sometimes strangers), online searches and endless hours on medical websites such as WebMd, trying to figure out what is going on with you. Even if you have support from your loved ones, they just do not know how to help you.
And that’s where I step in! One in 4 Americans suffer with depression and/or anxiety and each person has their personal history and reasons. Some are more functional than others, some need a more one on one therapy to help understand why this is happening. A busy daily schedule, stress at work, relationship problems, not being able to complete tasks because you feel overwhelmed!
I use an eclectic approach in psychotherapy but the most commonly used methods are cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy and mindfulness.
Does seeing a psychotherapist mean I'm crazy?
No, a lot of times people have a stigma that if they are seeing a psychotherapist or a psychiatrist they are crazy. That is not true, sometimes we need someone to guide our thoughts and address something they haven't on their own.
Do I have to talk about everything that has happened in my life?
It is up to you. Nothing in therapy is forced, and you are doing this because you want to explore and process what is going on. We might explore some of the past but it is up to you.
Will I feel uncomfortable?
There will be times that you might explore situations that trigger some negative feelings. But this is your time, and I will make sure the setting is cozy and comfortable for you, and provide much support for you to thrive.
I am located just west of the Palmetto Exwy (SR 826) from the Miami Lakes Drive exit. Easily accessible from Hialeah, Hialeah Gardens, Palm Springs North, Miramar and Pembroke Pines.
I'm at the Leroy Collins building, on the fourth floor.
I am part of some insurance networks, give me a call to find out if you are covered. Other than that, I am happy to provide you with a form you can send in to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. That means you're responsible for the fee at the time of our appointment and, depending on your plan, a certain percentage of that may be paid to you by your insurance co.
Initial visit/evaluation $170, follow up sessions $80. Couples family prices differs. Taking cash/checks and all CC.
