Julia Martin Burch, PhD
Welcome! I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in evidence-based treatment for anxiety, obsessive compulsive, and related disorders in young people. I provide both cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and training and consulting services for a variety of organizations.
My mission is to help children, families, and organizations learn how to quickly and effectively handle anxiety. I've created a collection of resources and services to help anxious young people live easier, more fulfilling lives. I look forward to connecting!
I completed my training at Fairleigh Dickinson University (Masters, Doctorate), Weill Cornell Medical Center (Externship), Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School (Internship), and McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School (Post-Doctoral Fellowship). Prior to transitioning to full time private practice and consulting, I worked as a staff psychologist in the McLean Anxiety Mastery Program (MAMP) and as a trainer and consultant on evidence-based practices in the McLean School Consult Service. I concurrently held an appointment as an Instructor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
I have won several awards, including the Alies Muskin Career Development Leadership Award from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, and was selected for the Harvard Medical School Leadership Development Program. I hold leadership roles in the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.
Training and Consulting
Since 2017, I have given 165 workshops (and counting!) on child mental health to a diverse variety of organizations, including pediatric medical practices, schools, camps, and parent-teacher associations.
Participants describe these interactive trainings as engaging, fun, and filled with easy to implement tips that they can apply immediately.
Using research supported treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I help anxious children, adolescents, and young adults learn to live more intentional, joyful and fulfilled lives. My therapeutic style is engaging, warm, and often (my patients tell me!) fun.
