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.

I offer many different arrangements for working together. This list does not include organizational training arrangements. For those, please see my Story Supervision page.


Periodic Story Sanctuaries focused on specific themes. This is an excellent and affordable way to experience my approach and connect with resonant community. Occasionally I offer a very affordable one. $35.

Currently I'm offering Story Sanctuaries for:
  • Caregivers;
  • Cancer Survivors;
  • People  going through tough emotional times.

Keep informed about my Story Sanctuary schedule on Facebook, LinkedIn, or my newsletter, for which you can sign up on my home page.

Single private online session to frame your story for professional or biographical discovery. 60 minutes by Skype or Zoom. $125. Request free 45-minute consultation.

(My most popular package!)
3-Session Online Package. $300.


6 sessions. If you have taken the group Write of Passage, I continue to work with you to deepen your experiential understanding of 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. Online - $750 prepaid.


SINGLE SESSION for caregivers, families, and people facing a major threshold or nearing the end of their life.

There are times in our lives when nothing matters more than healing or affirming our connections with other people. Storytelling is one of the most effective ways to reach out for life, for celebration, and for peace, and to give back love through listening.

$150. If you or your loved one is ill or incapacitated, I will come to you. Otherwise, we will meet in my office.

6 in-person sessions . In person in my office on 34th St. -$1,050 prepaid. Museum tour ("Stories Paintings Tell") available for extra fee. 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.

In person $1,890.

Online $1,300.

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 within a compassionate 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.
