Julia Forberg, MA, MFT

Therapy4u San Francisco Bay Area Psychot



I have dedicated much of my adult life to working in the social services and am passionate about supporting women in their personal growth. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, I have comprehensive training in Somatic Psychotherapy and Mindfulness Meditation. Helping individual women connect with their hearts, gain a meaningful understanding of themselves, and learn new tools to increase ease in their lives are central principles in my practice. 


My Approach


Our work together is collaborative and relational. You will find me to be warm, nurturing, and fiercely committed to your therapeutic growth. In each session, I will offer suggestions for how we can approach what you wish to explore. This may be through a guided meditation, body scanning, breathing exercises, sensing into your emotions, or authentic movement. We will also talk through ways to move beyond old beliefs, patterns, and stories that you wish to shed. To encourage your therapeutic growth in between sessions, I offer book suggestions and real-life experiments (homework). Helping you to uncover your unique ability to heal from past wounds so that you can move towards joy is my commitment to you as your therapist.

​For a list of the issues I treat please take a look at the Individuals page.


My specialties include:

  • Women’s issues

  • Relationship issues

  • Body image issues​


I see clients weekly in my San Francisco Laurel Heights office.

My Background


Originally from the East Coast, I moved to the Bay Area a decade ago to pursue a Master’s Degree in Somatic Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. Prior to becoming a licensed clinician, I studied traditional and therapeutic dance and therapeutic massage. Yoga and meditation are central to my personal healing journey, and I am passionate about supporting women in discovering their own holistic forms of healing. What the world needs now more than ever is for all people, especially women, to awaken to their hearts’ deepest longings and to live their lives unapologetically and with joy. Please contact me if you desire for more connection and ease. I am honored to support you.
