About Me

Home - About me

Hi

My name is Julian Redwood and I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over ten years of experience helping people to improve their lives. Beginning therapy can be a daunting step. Fortunately, therapy does bring real change for the vast majority of people.
I am here to join you in a highly interactive fashion and help you to find a new way in your life or relationship. My life's work and passion is supporting others to live more fully and deeply. 
In addition to many years of formal training, my own experience as an individual, husband and father deeply support me in helping others have more satisfying relationships and families. 

Experience

Some twenty years of consciously working on my own personal growth have given me a profound respect for the struggles we all face as humans. After years of intensive meditation, yoga practice and working towards being ordained as a Buddhist monk, I realized the importance of intimacy, love and psychological healing.
I found psychotherapy to have the power to help us find true intimacy with both others and ourselves. For those that are interested in the terminology, I use a psychodynamic, neo-Kleinian framework that incorporates mindfulness based, cognitive-behavioral techniques. I have additional training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Hakomi and Process Work.

Are we a Good Fit?

It is a big decision and I encourage you to take your time. This site will give you a sense of who I am and how I can help, but the best way to determine if I am the right therapist for you is for us to talk on the phone and ideally meet in person. Call me for a free phone consultation and we can each assess how I can help you: 415.806.5585.
