Julie M. Rosenzweig, Ph.D., L.C.S.W. is a psychotherapist in private practice in Lake Oswego, Oregon and a professor of social work at Portland State University. For over 25 years as a practitioner and teacher, Dr. Julie has touched many lives through her knowledge about human development, relationships, and healing from trauma.



At PSU, she is a well-respected teacher and researcher. Her classes on clinical practice and human sexuality consistently receive high marks for her ability to communicate about complex subject matter with sensitivity and humor. In addition to teaching, she is a leader in research on the work-life balance experiences of parents of children and youth with mental health disorders. She presents her work nationally and internationally and has written numerous publications, including co-authoring the book, Work, Life and the Mental Health System of Care: A Guide for Professionals Helping Families of Children with Emotional or Behavioral Disorders.



She is a speaker and workshop presenter to national audiences on the topics of brain development, sexuality, and work-life balance. During the past ten years she has been a regular contributor on local and national television about family matters and intimate relationships.



Despite of her record of career achievements, when asked, Dr. Julie will tell you that she is most proud of her 25 year marriage and her two children who are now young adults. Being a mom has given her both her greatest joys and most heart-breaking experiences, and has this to say about parenting:



“Parenting is like looking through a kaleidoscope; it is exhilarating, confusing, and ever-changing. The relationship with your child will teach you things you never knew you needed to know and things you never wanted to know. The stretch marks from being pregnant are only the beginning of the ways in which you will be stretched from the inside out. Being a parent strengthens you—heart and soul.”
