Details

The Viva Center was founded by Julie Lopez, PhD, LICSW, in 2010. An adult adoptee with extensive work in the trauma field, Dr. Julie saw firsthand how many people went through life feeling alone, ashamed, or even hopeless because of common mental health concerns. She knew she needed to create a safe, healing space where people could learn that their feelings were totally normal—and that they had the innate power to heal.

Over the years, more and more clinicians came to Viva, united by the desire to end the stigma against mental illness and to promote happiness and health across DC. They saw the powerful ripple effect of healing; as one client improved, they passed that healing on to the people around them. Because of this, we truly believe that helping others with their emotional health is the key to saving the world.

In 2018, we launched our comprehensive library of free mental health resources, the Resilient Brain Project (RBP). We are constantly updating RBP with podcasts, playlists, research, apps, worksheets, and more. Our hope is to make mental health tools accessible to everyone, no matter their age, location, or income.
