Ari Stockbridge, MSW

Position: Primary Therapist
Ari creates a warm, neutral and safe space for clients to dive deep into their behavioral patterns, blind-spots, relationships and life-style decisions. Ari believes in a holistic approach to enhance the mind-body-soul connection that allows opportunity to look at diet, movement regimen, meditation practice, communication styles, breathing patterns and overall routine. Ari is a certified yoga teacher (YTT200) and incorporates yoga movement and pranayama breath into her practice. Ari is also in the process of becoming a certified Sand Play Therapist (STA) and is excited to offer this creative expression to Dragonfly’s clients. Ari graduated from the University of Maryland with a Master’s in Social Work (MSW) and Master’s International. While studying, she completed 27 months of service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Fiji. She worked under the Community Youth Empowerment Project where she worked with youth groups across the country who struggled with life direction.  In Fiji, she witnessed the power of nature in the healing process and continued to work with youth at a horticultural therapy program in Hawaii. Ari is excited to continue to support youth through their life challenges while appreciating the natural beauty of Oregon. In her free time, Ari loves exploring Oregon with her new husband who just moved to Klamath Falls from Fiji. She adores animals of all kinds-especially her big fluffy dog, Vula. She loves playing piano and singing; she often times will bring music into her therapeutic relationships. Ari is fascinated with the  ‘vagus nerve’ and the role it plays in somatic and visceral response.

Julianna Fultineer, MA

Position: Primary Therapist

Julianna (or Jules) comes from a background of facilitating transformation in the outdoors. She came to the world of mental health through the circuitous path of being a river guide, mountain person, and lover of the land. As a youngster in Southern Oregon, Julianna learned to listen to the voices of nature as powerful guides toward self-transformation. After college, she channeled this passion into nearly a decade in the world of multi-day river guiding. Desiring more depth, she pursued a graduate degree in counseling and achieved an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Transpersonal Wilderness Therapy from Naropa University.

Jules brings an integrative approach to therapy, drawing on mindfulness-based, nature-based, and somatic methods to support clients. She holds specific training in ecopsychology, nature-based therapy, rites of passage work, and trauma-informed methods. With each client, she embraces the goal of creating an environment of relational safety where individuals can re-work old patterns and re-write stories. She does this all within the framework of a neurobiologically sound, and trauma-informed lens. Jules finds meaning in helping others navigate the swirling currents of their own lives and histories.

In addition to her experience in the field of mental health, Julianna holds a B.A. in Dramaturgy from Emerson College. In her free time, Jules can be found running rivers, sliding down mountains, and spending time outside with her family and her pup.
