Hey y'all. I’m Julia Alexander. 


I identify as a white cis queer woman and I live and work in and around Austin, Texas – land originally stewarded by the Tonkawa, Comanche, Lipan Apache, Jumanos and Coahuiltecan. I am a dog and horse guardian and nature is my sanctuary.

I provide compassionate social justice education and consulting services for therapists, individuals, groups and organizations.

When we address shame and oppression head-on – with love accountability – we free ourselves to move toward braver, more vulnerable, more connected living.

Facilitator | Consultant

I love working with other therapists, individuals and groups to create sustainable practices for a life-long commitment to social justice. Although my services are for everyone, I've specialized over the past 15 years in working with other white-bodied people move from shame, feeling paralyzed, and performance to compassion, accountability and action in their anti-racism journey.

This work is often slow, embodied, and deeply personal. I combine my facilitator training in intergroup dialogue and social justice curriculum design with my experience as a trauma therapist to create transformative experiences that support deep and lasting change.

Horses in Human healing


I love supporting therapists and coaches who are including horses in human treatment do so ethically and with a mind toward social justice. Together we find ways to give your equine as much voice, and autonomy as possible in sessions. We may also navigate shame, identify your deepest values and explore powerful themes that support your clients when you center advocating for your horses during your sessions.

What are people saying?

“Julia was gentle, kind, and transparent.

She was able to create containment without "rescuing" any of the members from our shame or pain around racism.”

“[The process was] in a word: healing.

In more words, Julia encouraged and challenged me in ways that helped me develop self-confidence, joy, and balance after the relational and religious trauma I'd experienced.”

“I appreciated Julia opening up about her own experiences navigating whiteness.

I felt like she honored the different experiences in the room.”

“Working with Julia is challenging and comforting.

She has a natural ability to listen and provide empathy, all the while nudging you deeper into hard work that provides

growth and change.”

“Julia does a wonderful job of providing structure and leadership, valuable psychoeducation, and safety

without taking herself out of the strong sense of connection we all shared. It's clear that she has both sought extensive education on the topic, as well as done a great deal of her own personal work.”

“Julia was extremely present, kind and patient with me throughout my process.

She encouraged me to continue to work towards the goals I had set in therapy while also allowing space for me to feel that I was in control of the work we were doing. Her work involved talk therapy and also focusing on what my body was trying to tell me in nonverbal ways,

which created a safe space for me to come to depending on where I found myself in each moment.”

“[Julia] created a safe environment for us and was very supportive!”

“[Julia is] awesome.

She shows empathy and is very knowledgeable on shame, shame resilience, privilege, and guiding everyone on how to create a safe space.”
