Julie Tapley San Francisco Psychotherapy Consultation EMDR

Life has gotten so fast paced

crazy and hard!

So many pressures, choices, and passwords!

It’s affecting our sleep, our health and happiness, our creativity, and our relationships with our friends, our partners and our family.


I’m convinced that high quality therapy can be so valuable right now

to help you access your inner self- the place where thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations are located –those profound guideposts on the path to change.


I aim for a “shame-free” zone in therapy, where we can be respectful–and curious– about any and all of your feelings and experiences.



As individuals, we all face challenges in different areas of our lives. We discover our interactions with our partners and family members are complex and require expert guidance. At times we may experience anxiety or depression. Sometimes individuals seek help when faced with a difficult loss or life choice.

Often couples and families see me to have a space where they can talk about difficult topics and work through challenges. I help couples learn new ways to share their thoughts and feelings with each other. My feedback can help couples understand the negative dynamics that underly their conflicts, and then we are able to shift these patterns into much more fulfilling interactions.

Guiding parents is also a significant part of my work: I can help you help your child or adolescent, while at other times I can work directly with all or some members of a family.

I use a mixture of play therapy, art techniques and talk therapy with children and adolescents.

I am fluent in French and Spanish.

I welcome LGBTQ+ individuals, couples and families.

As a licensed psychotherapist with nearly 25 years of extensive, diverse experience, I offer psychotherapy and consultation in my Hayes Valley office, close to the Civic Center corridor of San Francisco.
