Julie Caramanico, MS, LPC, RYT, RCYT
Hi, thanks for stopping by! I am a licensed Psychotherapist at the Well Being Center in Wayne, PA where I see children, teens and adults for individual therapy. I am also a PEERS certified provider, and provide social skills groups for teens who need support in making and keeping friends at the HARBOR Center in Philadelphia. I am also a registered yoga teacher for children and adults.
My theoretical orientation is CBT, with an emphasis on an integrated mind/body approach utilizing mindfulness and yoga strategies. My work is client-centered and collaborative, in that I help my clients identify strategies and tools that they can use in their everyday lives to create meaningful change. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and adults with autism, anxiety and social challenges.
I graduated from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2009 with a Masters in Counseling and Clinical Health Psychology. I’ve spent much of my professional career working with children and adolescents at the University of Pennsylvania and CHOP. During my time at CHOP, I started a yoga practice to train for the Broad Street Run. After experiencing many positive mental health benefits from my yoga practice – including a reduction in my own anxiety and trauma symptoms – I dove into a yoga teacher training and have been teaching yoga ever since. I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training with Dhyana Yoga and a children’s yoga training with Little Flower Yoga.
I have spent the last 7 years teaching yoga to children and adults throughout the Philadelphia region. I am the primary yoga teacher for the Friendship Circle in Philadelphia, which provides social activities for children with autism. I also teach yoga for the Kinney Center at Saint Joseph’s University.
