Julia Klynstra, MSW, Supervisee for LCSW

Hello! My name is Julia and I am a Master’s Level Social Worker currently under supervision towards becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received Master’s in Social Work with a clinical concentration at Virginia Commonwealth University. Before moving to Virginia, I lived in Michigan and received my Bachelors in Social Work with minors in Psychology and Spanish from a small liberal arts school.  Within the therapeutic relationship, I am passionate about building a collaborative space where clients are free to address current struggles, process past events, celebrate successes, and work towards identified areas for growth. I practice from a person-centered and trauma-informed lens and draw from various therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.  Prior to working at Youth for Tomorrow, I have worked with a wide variety of populations in different settings including youth and adolescents in home-based counseling, adults experiencing domestic violence, and court-mandated adults. I now work primarily with adolescents and adults and have experience addressing a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, self-injury, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, and adolescent challenges.  Outside of work, I enjoy trail running and hiking as well as knitting, reading, and traveling.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the North Carolina State University and my Masters in Social Work from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. I have previously worked in a psychiatric residential treatment facility where I provided direct care services to youth who had experienced trauma and who struggled with a mental illness. I have also provided direct care services to youth who were diagnosed with an eating disorder. Lastly, I completed my graduate clinical internship in a children’s advocacy center where I provided therapy services to children and adolescents who had experienced and witnessed physical, sexual and emotional abuse.

I am very passionate about providing high quality mental health services to individuals who have experienced trauma and have been diagnosed with a mental illness. I primarily work with children and adolescents but I am more than happy to work with adults. My specialties include Anxiety, depression, Trauma, suicidal ideation, self-harm, and behavioral difficulties. My goal is to provide a safe space where individuals can begin the healing process and to gain skills and coping mechanisms to manage their mental illness and daily life challenges.
