Julius Jessup Peterson (they/them/their) is the owner and founder of Roots Seeds and Branches, an integrative mental health experience that offers psychotherapy in synergy with social justice and science fiction. Roots, Seeds, and Branches (RSB) is building a movement to redefine what it means for a marginalized body to live as a free person in a polarized world.

Julius has over 10 years of experience assisting women and men through crisis. Julius uses a variety of healing and therapeutic modalities; including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy, (EMDR), Brain Spotting, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) , Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy. Julius specializes in helping individuals build and develop their internal resources, draw from their strengths, and build new skills that will allow them to live as a free person. RSB offers a framework in which people living on the margins can look beyond their own reality and literally see other possibilities that centers on their dignity, their internal resources, and power that they never knew that they had.

Whether you are going through a hard life transition or a descending into something painful or harmful, each requires an inner strength that needs to be nourished.
