Justin Juárez (he/him/his) is a Marriage and Family Therapy Associate. He uses a culturally affirming and trauma-informed approach to his clients to create a safe space for a client to reach their goals. There are many reasons people seek therapy, but he believes people are the experts of their lives and works as a collaborator to explore and/or build upon their inner strengths and resources. Because we all live complex lives, he uses an integrated approach to therapy to tailor the relationship to his client's needs. Whether people are experiencing the effects of anxiety, depression, or trauma, Justin seeks to create a refuge to promote healing, self-love, inner peace, growth, and change for adolescents, adults, and the spectrum of relationships we experience as humans. He also has been trained in EMDR, a treatment for reprocessing traumatic memories.
