Our Therapists

Julia Triplett MA, AMFT #95417

My therapeutic style is to combine genuine compassion, curiosity and empowerment. Working together, we will find meaning in your past patterns, and set goals for both immediate and long term change. Together we will take up a holistic, courageous and non-judgmental exploration of your life. Nothing is more inspiring than guiding a client in rediscovering his or her wise inner voice.

I was drawn to work in a healing profession because I wanted to contribute to people’s well being and increased self-awareness. This work is very much in alignment with my values and my temperament, and I cannot imagine myself doing anything else.

I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I work with adults, couples, adolescents, children, and groups. I use evidence-based practices in addressing issues such as substance abuse, relationship conflict, depression and anxiety, codependency, and major life transitions.

Nancy Carnathan-Cribbs MA, LMFT #44623, CASD

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Spiritual Director, I work with individuals, couples, and families. I have experience working with depression and anxiety, grief and loss, marriage conflicts, parent-child concerns, survivors of sexual and emotional abuse, gay/lesbian/bisexual issues and spirituality.  My goal is to provide a safe space for you to explore those areas of your life that are causing you discomfort, pain, sadness, stress and anxiety, preventing you from embracing who you really want to be.

As I work with individuals, couples and families I can offer a wide variety of healing methods such as but not limited to talk therapy, art therapy, sand tray, guided imagery and inner child work.

I provide a calm, safe environment as I honor and respect your desire to address, confront, and heal the woundedness in your life. I provide a listening ear and gentle presence as I acknowledge your ability to develop insight and awareness into your true self.
