LIVING STORY                           
Juliet Bruce, PhD

Ways to Work with Me 

Healing and transformation are incremental processes, and for many people best undertaken as focused, time-limited, and measurable commitments.


Single session. 60 minutes by Skype or Zoom. $150. Request free 45-minute consultation.

3-Session Online Package. $300.

In Person in My Office on 34th St.

6 sessions. I recommend at least six sessions to truly begin this work. In this basic counseling arrangement, I work with you to find the subtext and back story of your life -- the story that's reflected in the environments you choose to live in or create around you, the people you attract into your life, the situations that repeat -- and to find the new story that wants to come forth.

In a session, you may write, draw, or dance your story before finding the right words, as it is appropriate and comfortable for you. We may work with a particular story -- a novel or film -- that resonates, or take a museum tour together to break through blocks by finding the stories that your favorite paintings tell you. Or you may prefer to stick with talking about your situation or issue, knowing that I bring the positive and expansive perspective of story. $1,050. Request a free consultation. 

12 sessions. This allows time for you to articulate and flesh out a new vision for your life, as well as identify toxic and repeating relationships, and behavior patterns that sabotage fulfillment of your inherent potential. You'll begin to get a real sense of the plots by which you live, the roles you assign to yourself and others, and the general shape, mood, and texture of the life you are creating for yourself. You'll learn what you want to celebrate and what to mourn. You'll be able to locate yourself in what can feel like a void during a time of transition.

As your right path emerges in this creative process, you will be able to live with greater intention, effectiveness, and enjoyment. Seemingly intractable patterns will begin to loosen their hold on your life. Your spirit will be revived.

Counseling for Creative and Meaningful Change

I use an ancient healing story process, adapted to modern realities, to facilitate the emergence of new internal stories when the old ones no longer serve you.

My clients are people in transition, who have had traditional therapy and who are not dealing with behavioral or serious mental health issues. If you are dealing with more severe conditions, I will refer you to a trusted colleague.

While it's not necessary to be an actual writer or artist, I do my best work with people who are willing to engage in a creative process with me.

Please feel free to take advantage of my offer of a free phone or Skype session to explore whether we're a right fit personally and if my approach is right for you. Before we talk, I'll ask you to
fill out a Client Information Form (CIF), from which you'll clarify your goals, set an intention for our call, and help me align my energy with yours so that it supports you in every way.

If we decide to work together, you may address old issues again. But you will also know that you are being held in a deeply understanding, skilled facilitation environment, within a narrative structure that is the scaffold of your new and happier life, and that you are on a journey of self-realization.

Anything that occurs in our sessions will be confidential.

I work on a self-pay basis.
As noted, I offer a sliding scale for those who need it.

Cancellation policy: If you find it necessary to cancel your session, please do so at least 24 hours in advance, or you will be charged for that session.
