Julianne Blake, Ph. D
Dr. Julianne Blake, Ph.D., is a Certified Professional Success Coach who offers high-level training in Jack Canfield’s outstanding system for attaining ultimate success. As a coach and trainer, she guides you in breaking through obstacles and limitations to create lives you love to live. The onetime professional dancer earned her doctorate in clinical psychology and was a practicing psychotherapist for eighteen years. As a therapist, she developed exciting, innovative methods in Gestalt art therapy. Her practice focused on teens and adults with self-esteem issues, women in relationship crisis, and she also specialized in effectively counseling people challenged by chronic or life-threatening illness, particularly cancer. Julianne’s quest for a deeper understanding of healing led her to travel the world researching new paths to physical and spiritual health. Her journey took her from milking sheep (for making cheese) on a Sufi farm in England to studying acupuncture and medicinal tonics at a Taiwanese hermitage, to learning ancient meditation techniques at a Buddhist monastery in Nepal. Then suddenly, Julianne was confronted within her own crisis when she was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and faced the possibility of never dancing again. Determined to overcome her pain and her own feelings of helplessness, anger—and fear, she journeyed again—this time into the world of medicine, research journals and alternative practitioners, where she experienced acupuncture, osteopathy, chiropractic, and many systems of natural healing. With newfound knowledge and skills, Julianne parlayed the broad range of her experiences into a new career as a professional success coach. Julianne’s exceptional insight allows her to enable you to access your core, your true self. Her program includes personalized guided meditation sessions that empower you to release past trauma and pain, and offers step-by-step guidance in developing the action plan to take you to your ultimate success. Her own personal challenge gives Julianne a unique ability to work with clients who are challenged with chronic and life-threatening illness and pain, helping them find relief, thrive and live their dreams with passion. In addition to her designation as a Certified Professional Success Coach, Julianne is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, as well as a certified mem457 dancinG throuGh the dark to coMe alive: becoMe the Miracle you are ber of the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Los Angeles.
