Hello, I'm Margarete Juliana of Joyful Heart Therapy.
Choosing the right therapist for your specific therapy needs is important. I hope this overview of my credentials and experience will help you make your therapist selection.
I am a fully licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Tennessee, United States. I am also a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario, Canada. This means I have fulfilled all license requirements needed to practice independently in both jurisdictions.
I help clients to identify and resolve distress, feeling stuck and relationship discord. In order to do this work I rely on clients feeling safe with me so that they can collaborate in the process of discovery. With individuals, I work primarily with clients who may have unexplained anxiety and depression, family of origin concerns and who may be under the care of their family doctor or specialist.
Much of my clientele is with couples who are experiencing relationship distress. I have successfully helped couples who have had relationship trauma such as affairs, sexual addiction, illness and other highly disruptive concerns. During therapy clients first begin to understand their disconnection cycle and how to create a safe secure connection within the couple relationship, then they work to successfully interrupt this cycle consistently so that they can discuss any topic knowing their partner is responsive and willing to interact in a safe caring way.
My education and professional development as a marriage and family therapist covers a broad range of relationship issues. I promote the importance of maintaining safe secure connections in all relationships. My education also includes a Masters of Counseling Psychology. I am also a Certified Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist through the ICEEFT.
For the past 10 years I have been in private practice working mostly with individuals and couples using Emotionally Focused Therapy. Prior to my private practice I spent many years working as an addictions specialist, and as a family therapist supporting clients of an eating disorders day treatment program within an Ontario hospital.
A significant part of my therapy practice is now conducted through video conferencing. My clients (both couples and individuals) find Teletherapy to be a convenient, easy, and effective way to enhance or replace traditional face-to-face office visits.
More importantly, clients find Teletherapy to be very similar to their experience with me in an office setting. The same sense of closeness and connection that is necessary in order to do effective therapy is also accomplished through our secure video conferencing session.
