Ms. Julissa M. Perez

Clinical Social Work/Therapist , LCSW , MT-BC

(203) 403-6299
Finding a therapist can seem overwhelming. I am a Board Certified Music Therapist and use multiple creative modalities to provide a positive experience for my clients including mindfulness, story-telling, movement, and writing to name a few. I am particularly interested in cross-cultural/multicultural psychology and currently enjoy working with identity related issues. The goal is to help you create your best life.
During sessions, we devise a plan together and set real short-term and long-term goals. As an experienced therapist, I will work with you to develop new patterns of thinking and relating to yourself and others using cognitive-behavioral, expressive, creative, and dialectical techniques.
I have worked in multiple settings including hospitals, LGBT Centers, Employee Assistance Programs , women's clinics and schools. I was featured on the talk radio show, "Cafecito Break" discussing issues related to self-esteem and negative self-talk. Click on the website button to hear the segment.
