About Dr. Juliette
Born in Los Angeles, I was raised in the San Gabriel Valley. For 20 years, I studied classical piano and voice.
Being a Mother and Visual Artist
While raising the children, I started private painting classes. When I was young, I had always wanted to paint and draw. But my piano, voice lessons, and studies left me with little time.
I loved painting and found the freedom of expression exhilarating. I was able to squeeze in time late at night after the children were in bed to paint. It became my therapy. As an artist I was trained by Joseph and Zdenka Buresh, famed Czech artists. I also studied with Tom Browning, at the Scottsdale Artist’s School.
When my children were in their early teens, I decided that I needed to complete my education. I picked Psychology, because I was extremely interested in human behavior. In 1982 I returned to college and by 1988 I received a PhD in Clinical Psychology. As the years progressed, I continued to paint and join in any kind of creative endeavor that I could find.
