Julie Fiorenza (she/her)

I am a licensed master social worker committed to providing culturally sensitive, trauma-informed services in a safe, supportive, and collaborative environment. I hold a Master’s degree in social work from New York University and have experience working with LGBTQ+, immigrant, and adopted adolescents, as well as young adults impacted by the criminal legal system. I am available to work with pre-teens, adolescents, and adults who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, symptoms related to trauma, difficulty navigating life transitions, and issues relating to self-esteem, identity, and adoption.

My Story

As a Korean American transracial adoptee and therapist of color, I offer a unique perspective and understanding of how our intersecting identities shape our sense of self, interactions with others, and navigation through the world. I also understand the need to destigmatize mental health in the Asian community and other communities of color. I hope to help close the treatment gap for these populations.
 

To facilitate this process, my approach is holistic, integrative, strengths-based, and person-centered, drawing from psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy as well as mindfulness. My background in the performing arts motivates me to incorporate creative approaches and somatics to encourage self-expression, identity exploration, and healing. Most importantly, I will meet you wherever you are in your journey and tailor my approach to meet your unique individual needs. I look forward to working in partnership with you to help you reach your full potential.


I accept Cigna insurance and out-of-pocket payments. For out-of-pocket payments, I do offer a sliding scale; please inquire for more details.


Initial Consultations
Finding a therapist can be a process in and of itself. Because therapy is personal and oftentimes vulnerable, it is important to find someone you authentically connect with for the work to feel safe and impactful. I strongly encourage new clients to "shop around a bit" to find the right fit, which is why I offer this free consultation. It is a casual opportunity for us to meet in person* with no strings attached. You can share with me a little bit more about what's brought you to therapy, and I can share with you a little bit more about my approach. Hopefully, you'll then be able to better assess whether or not I am a good fit for what you're looking for in a therapist. Schedule an initial free consultation here.
