Hi, I’m Julie Kurtz!


I am an author, national speaker and expert consulting and training on trauma and resilience. I promote the concept of optimal brain integration to maximize the human growth potential. I am the Founder and CEO for the Center for Optimal Brain Integration.

I co-authored the following books:

·     Trauma-Informed Practices for Early Childhood Educators: Relationship-Based Approaches that Support Healing and Build Resilience in Young Children

·     Culturally Responsive Self-Care Practices for Early Childhood Educators

·     Trauma Informed Practices for Early Childhood Educators: Creating and Sustaining Healing and Engaged Organizations (2021)

·     Trauma Informed Practices for Early Childhood Educators: Family Engagement with a Strength-Based and Trauma Informed Lens (2022)

As the creator of the phone/tablet Application (APP) Trigger Stop: Sensory and Emotional Check-in, I designed this APP specifically for children ages 3-8 years to promote sensory and emotional literacy and to support self-regulation.

In 2011, I was honored to receive an award as the 100 Influential Woman of Silicon Valley, CA by the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund if I'm unhappy with my purchase?

After you purchase your 1:1 coaching session, it is not refundable. That is why we have you purchase one session, not several. This gives you the option to choose to do one coaching session at a time without the larger financial commitment.



How do I schedule my appointment?

Upon purchasing coaching, you'll receive further instructions on how to book a time for your appointment.



Can I purchase coaching more than once?

Absolutely! If you find yourself in need of coaching more than once, simply purchase the coaching again.
