Julia Cabral, LCSW
Many of us experience difficult times in our lives and taking the step to shift our thinking and gain skills to manage these challenges is a significant choice. I believe that when working together, a therapist and client can engage in a partnership where new skills are developed, distorted attitudes and beliefs are confronted and choices made to live a stronger, more intentional life are possible.
I have 20 years of clinical experience working with adolescents and adults with a variety of mental health and behavioral issues. Each client brings their own strengths and challenges to therapy and I offer a warm, supportive therapeutic alliance essential for achieving the client’s goals and resolution of the issues that brought them into therapy.
I received my MSW degree from the University of New England’s School of Social work in 2002 along with my Certificate in Addiction Studies. I received my B.A. in Sociology from Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts.
I use multiple modalities and eclectic approaches in providing integrative and comprehensive treatment. I bring a sense of humor, honest communication skills and authenticity to my clinical work. I appreciate how difficult and stressful undertaking a therapeutic journey can be and I seek to make it a safe and beneficial process for those I work with. I will work with clients to verify coverage and costs through insurance companies and accept self payment clients. I will consider a sliding fee scale for those in need.
