Julia Porter

Administrative Assistant

they/she

My name is Julia and I’m the administrative assistant for both Chicago Mindful Psychotherapy as well as our partner practice, Andersonville Psychology. I am excited to be supporting such a wonderful team of therapists and staff here.

My background is in mental health agency work, most recently supporting individuals navigating eating disorder treatment. As I have welcomed more mindfulness into my life over the past few years, I have felt the need and desire to intentionally shift my focus to surrounding myself with like-minded individuals who value holistic approaches to healing in the therapeutic space. I am also currently a graduate student in the second year of my own counseling training program at Naropa University, which keeps me quite occupied. In my precious downtime you can find me spending lots of playful time with my sweet cats, watching Hayao Miyazaki’s films or the Great British Baking Show, or dancing at various studios around Chicago.
