Julie Bjelland, LMFT

As a licensed psychotherapist in California, I enjoy working with clients in my private practice, and continue to expand my work by developing online brain-training courses, coaching the highly sensitive person globally, supervising interns, serving as a consultant to mental health professionals, working with parents of highly sensitive children and serving on the advisory council for global sensitive leaders. My passion and expertise is in neuroscience and determining how to successfully train the brain so people can live their best lives. My most recent book, Brain Training for the Highly Sensitive Person: Techniques to Reduce Anxiety and Overwhelming Emotions, has received beautiful reviews from world-renowned psychologists Tara Brach, PhD, Rick Hanson, PhD, and Ted Zeff, PhD. I specialize in working with anxiety and the highly sensitive person (HSP), couple's communication, self-esteem, and the LGBTQQ community. In addition to my work in psychology, I am a former Guide Dogs for the Blind trainer and author of the book Imagine Life With A Well-Behaved Dog

I love this work and use my deeply intuitive and empathetic abilities to truly connect with clients and students and to support them in getting to know and celebrate their authentic selves. It’s beautiful to be a part of the change that helps people live remarkably better lives.
