The Awakened Mind Institute is excited and pleased to announce the addition of Ms. Julia Wilson to our clinical staff. In May Julia will graduate from Naropa University in Boulder Colorado where she will receive a master’s degree in clinical psychology with an emphasis in Buddhist psychology and meditative methodology. She is an expert in various mindfulness based interventions including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT), mindfulness based relapse prevention, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). She has also been trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy and family systems.
During a recent interview, Ms. Wilson stated, "Everyone reaches a point in life when the methods they used to cope with the challenges and the traumas of the past are no longer working, and so they need to develop more sophisticated ways to work with their thoughts and emotions. I often see people cope with their anxiety and depression by numbing out, getting angry and aggressive with the world around them, or getting materialistic. As a clinician I try to see my clients as struggling to be adaptive, struggling to survive, they just need better tools... According to the needs of my clients, I can shift and work seamlessly from any or all of the mindfulness based therapeutic modalities."
Ms. Wilson has a strong background in the treatment of women’s issues, addiction, psychological trauma (PTSD and C-PTSD), and mood disorders (MDD and Bipolar I and II). She has also received training in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy (PAP); moreover PAP was the subject of her master’s thesis. Julia has an upbeat personality and a grounded and compassionate clinical style. She is smart, funny, and an insightful clinician. Julia also represents our most affordable clinical fee as her sessions are available for $100 per session. Please reach out and contact AMI today!
