More about me

Licensing: MA, LMFT

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile! I am happy to get started with you! My name is Julia Mendoza, and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist based out of southern California. I have a master's degree in counseling and have been working in the mental health field since 2008. I have experience working with all ages, in the areas of depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, LGBT+ issues, OCD, personality disorders, family problems, relationship and partner conflict, and traumas. I truly enjoy helping others and I have been told that I am funny, genuine, open-minded, and a good listener.

I know that sometimes starting with a new therapist may feel embarrassing or even intimidating, but please know that it is my duty to not judge, to be respectful, and to help you on your mental health journey. My approach to counseling will be focused on our therapeutic relationship and I place a strong emphasis on creating an environment where you will feel safe, supported, and challenged to become your best self. I will check-in with you regularly throughout this process to ensure that we are meeting your expectations and that we are moving in your chosen direction. Persons of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, communities, and spiritual traditions are welcomed into therapeutic connection with me. As we begin, I would like to find out more about you. I would like to explore who you are, what brings you to therapy, and what challenges you are having in managing these issues. Given that information, I would like that together we establish a treatment plan to address your concerns, and set clear goals. I want to examine what is working for you, what effective strategies you've used in the past, as well as what has not worked and how we can tailor it to fit you better.

As your therapist, I wish to guide you to meet those goals, teach you skills to navigate your improvement and self-change, and getting yourself back on course. Lastly, I am flexible and will move and flow at the pace that you like or need. I think together we can make great strides to your self-improvement, and I can not wait to get started!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Julia has been accommodating to my needs and understanding what it is that I struggle with. She has always made time made to be available to discuss important topics and give me "hw assignments" for me to complete that allows me better to understand my thoughts, feelings, and values. She has been a tremendous help in my life, and I am grateful to her and her expertise.

I’ve only been with Julia for a few weeks and this is my first time doing therapy, but she has been warm, easy to talk to, and a profoundly calming and open therapist. I am hopeful for our future work together.

Julia is a very open-minded, understanding and warm-hearted person. She listened with kindness and without judgement. Her advice helped me tremendously through a bad break up and ensuing personal problems. Her advice and understanding has been very helpful in guiding me to a healthier mind frame.

Very caring and thoughtful. Julia has asked a lot of questions and I have found more peace by doing the worksheets she assigned to me. I feel she truly cares for me and my situation. She checks I with me just to ask how I’m doing and I enjoy being able to text her anytime even late sometimes. I highly recommend Julia
