“As a therapist, I have worked with individuals overcoming depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. I have also helped couples on the brink of divorce learn how to resolve issues of the past and restore intimacy. I utilize several theories, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and principles of the Gottman Method. Every session is different, but the results are similar: a new you ready to adopt new behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes completely aware of your inner strength. ”

Josephine Jules is a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Thomas University of Miami, Florida. I am fluent in English and Haitian-Creole. I have experience working with children & adolescents, families, and couples. Her goal with therapy is to empower individuals and families to heal so they can prosper and live their best life. She views each client through a systemic lens because we all exist in systems, and we are all relational beings. With a thorough understanding of this, she helps individuals and families navigate through whatever challenge that they are currently going through. One of her biggest therapeutic tools in therapy is storytelling. It helps clients navigate and explore their own life experiences to help give it meaning and an identity. With this she also incorporates a person-centered, collaborative and solution-focused approach with my clients.
“On a personal level, I have a beautiful son who challenges me to best the best mom each day. When I am not providing therapy, I enjoy spending my time with my family, collecting books, restaurant hopping, working out and catching up on some well-needed sleep! Having a supportive tribe is important to me because I am what you call” a people person”. I’ve gone through my own personal struggles with anxiety and depression throughout adolescence and even adulthood. This was also my initial motivation for pursuing a career in Mental Health. I was always so fascinated with how the human mind works as well as breaking down unhealthy narratives related to mental health. Therapy can be scary but also rewarding. I look forward to meeting with you and helping you accomplish your goals.”
