"I am a Licensed Psychologist with over thirty years of experience providing services to children, adolescents and families. I have also been involved in the training and supervision of child, adolescent and family therapists for this same timeframe. Julie Weigel MFT is one of the most gifted child and adolescent psychotherapists I have known.  She is compassionate, caring and persistently positive. Finally she is incredibly creative and integrates drama, role playing, humor and fun into her approach in a unique way.  I recommend her without hesitation".

“Julie looks at you and understands...she treasures the individual while having good knowledge of larger systems — you couldn’t ask for a more thoughtful, insightful therapist...”
Annette Blackman, MFT
Contra Costa County Children’s Mental Health colleague


"I have had the opportunity to work with Julie by way of co-facilitating groups and consulting with her. Julie has an amazing ability to absorb human interactions and translate them into a metaphor, movement, and play in a way that illuminates the deeper meaning of them. She has an ability to listen to what is not yet said and bring it to the surface in a safe and accepting manner. Her intuition and experience with modes of communication other than spoken language allow her to help clients access unfamiliar aspects of themselves and gain new perspectives.  I would entrust her with any of my clients and know they are in safe hands."
Gerold Loenecker, MFT
