Who We Are

Julie Bindeman, Psy-D


I have experience working with a variety of areas of concern including: reproductive challenges (infertility, pregnancy loss, and post-partum issues) depression, anxiety, self image, body image, adjustments, and issues around life transitions. I have extensive experience working with both adolescents and adults. I view effective therapy as a collaborative effort and continually seek out feedback as to how treatment is progressing. Since I believe that there is a strong connection between body and mind, I incorporate mind/body integration techniques, such as yoga and relaxation, which can relieve stress, anxiety and numerous other issues.

Nanci Brown, LCSW-C


I believe that everybody has the right to live up to their full potential. Sometimes, at certain points in our lives, we get stuck or we find ourselves repeating self-defeating behaviors. Sometimes we may feel as if no one understands us. Coming to therapy is the first step in making changes and gaining insight. I tailor my approach to each individual using an integrative framework. I am best suited for clients who are looking for a warm, insightful and interactive journey. I have significant experience with adolescents, adults and couples with varying issues and also have a special interest in helping recent parents adjust to their new roles. I have training in traditional and progressive approaches and am a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist. In addition, I am very interested in the mind body connection and have training in yoga therapy.

But What If It Works?

This blog is being reposted by the author, Dr. Julie Bindeman. It was originally posted to Pregnancy After Loss Support in November 2017.  So much of a pregnancy after loss is spent with the all consuming thought: what if it doesn’t work…

Grieving during the “Happiest Time of the Year”

There is no good time or easier time to grieve. The first year is especially hard as new “firsts” are being lived through-such as birthdays, anniversaries, and of course holidays. There is a supposition that the first year is the most awful…

In this moment

Being in the moment is no easy task. It almost seems that we are programmed to think ahead, formulate our plan for what is next, or automatically anticipate future actions. Our world moves so quickly and we attend to so many different stimuli…

Merry and Bright?

Holidays are filled with “should’s” and “supposed to’s”.  ‘We should get together with family.’ or ‘We should be happy this time of year.’  For many, the holidays are anything but a happy time and are mired in stress. There…

Back to School

For parents, this is a magical time of year. It is when the kids return to school. This means that there is a normal that can quickly be settled into once again or perhaps it might mean establishing a new normal. Not all kids will think of September…

Checking in on Change

Change takes time. Change is a process. Change is hard.  All three of these statements are true, and yet they don’t exactly make us want to rush out and commit to making a change. Most human beings prefer stability to change. We crave safety…

Let it Snow?

As adults, we romanticize snow. We look back with fondness on snow days, sledding, hot chocolate, and an unexpected day off. We might remember turning our pajamas inside out in the hopes that the School Closure Gods will take pity on us and…

Turkey and Holiday Blues- a mini-blog

Holidays are tough. Whether it is the logistics of pulling it off (either attending or preparing) or  even the thought of coping with so many family members in one room, most of us are affected by this time of year. Here is a quick survival…

Welcome to Our Blog

November is inherently a time to take stock, to express gratitude, and to prepare to make changes once the new year begins. Taking stock is something that most of us find to be challenging. It means that we have to admit to ourselves (and perhaps…
