I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been licensed for almost 20 years and have over 30 years working in the mental health field. My experience ranges from working on inpatient psychiatric units, in crisis counseling programs as well as doing individual and family therapy. I have extensive experience working with teens who suffer from anxiety and depression, and high functioning autism spectrum issues. I use a person centered, strengths based and goal oriented approach. I also use personality typology tools to help teens better understand themselves and build confidence.
My specialty with teens is working with Highly Sensitive People and High Functioning Autism Spectrum teens and young adults. If you wonder if your teen is a Highly Sensitive person, I recommend Googling Highly Sensitive People self test. Frequently teens who are highly sensitive people, or who are on the autism spectrum, struggle with coping with the stress and chaos of the world. I can help with developing positive and effective strategies to manage emotional reactions and help reduce acting out emotionally and replacing that with confident and positive communication.
I am most effective with teens who are struggling with above stated issues, LGBTQ issues, or adjusting to changing life situations. I admit, I have no experience with working with oppositional defiant teens or teens with conduct disorders. I encourage you to look for a different therapist if you have a teen that needs help with severe behavioral problems that includes violence toward authority.
If you feel your teen would benefit from a warm, empathetic and emotionally validating therapist to help build confidence, overcome depression or anxiety, cope with challenges of being an LGBTQ youth, or build skills and insight to live positively with high functioning autism or being a Highly Sensitive Person, I might be the perfect therapist for your teen and would love to work with you and them!

LPC #2847 (Expires: 2021-06-30)
Julie has helped support me in answering questions that I didn’t even realize I was asking with my thoughts and behaviors. I can’t say enough about how much I appreciate her. Completely genuine and experienced, 15/10 would recommend every time.
Julie makes me think and ponder about things I didn't even know were in my head! She pays attention, she listens and she gets me. I couldn't ask for anyone better!
Julie has been a true blessing for my daughter. She works patiently and offers a strong understanding of issues my daughter struggles with. She provides me helpful follow up tips and the confidence needed to help with issues. She is an amazing therapist and I highly recommend her.
Julie has created the space for me to share when I need it and has been very understanding when my schedule prevents any communication. She has been flexible and always responds even when I am just looking for someone to vent to.
I love working with Julie. She is a great listener, provides great advice and is very knowledgeable.
Incredibly supportive, understanding, caring and helpful! I've been going through some major life changes, and I don't know how I would be doing without Julie as my sounding board and guide.
Julie is great; empathetic and kind. I highly recommend.
Julie has been my counselor for a month or so now, but I’m a nursing student so my schedule is insanely busy and Julie has been so understanding about that. I have not felt an ounce of judgement from her about any issue- from the smallest to the biggest- and that is what everyone deserves in a counselor.
Julie is literally the best therapist I’ve ever had. I cannot even tell you how much she’s done for me. ❤️
Only a couple sessions in but so far great connection and easy to work with
Julie is the best therapist I have ever had. I am making breakthroughs I never thought I would make. I am seeing results in a matter of a couple weeks. It is obvious that she cares. She is articulate, communicative, and intuitive. She helps me come to in depth understandings of my needs. After talking to her for a couple days all my apprehension to use teen counseling was gone. I am a dip my toes in kind of person but with Julie I jumped and she has done an amazing job and I cannot wait to see what’s to come. I cannot even stress this enough. Julie is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!
Julie is very easy to talk with. She is empathetic, insightful, and intelligent. She is well read and brings many years of experience to the sessions. I so appreciate her perspective on things and the ways she challenges me.
Julie is absolutely amazing! Almost every time we talk, I actually leave the conversation feeling positive, hopeful, and determined. Julie helped me find that by encouraging, supporting, and validating me, my parts, and my experiences. I still have a long way to go, and paying for therapy with no steady income is hard, but I am confident that she can help me learn to navigate and manage my C-PTSD/Complex trauma, and other comorbid disorder(s).
Julie takes the time to listen and provides helpful practical tips to help you feel better. She genuinely cares and I’m so thankful for her!
Julie is AMAZING! Her positive outlook and energy are contagious. She has given me so much insight into who I am, and why I react to things the way I do. She’s the best!!!
I’ve really enjoyed my therapy with Julie. It hasn’t been long, but I feel my eyes have already been opened to looking at certain situations in a better light. My shoulders feel a little less heavy. I am excited to keep working through my issues because I feel Julie truly cares & wants to show me the best ways to navigate through my life hurdles :)
She is an amazing therapist who listens, validates, and addresses all of my issues.
Julie has been one of the easiest people I have ever talked to. She is so warm and kind and understanding.
Julie Knight has been a great help. She is a sympathetic listener and offers helpful suggestions for dealing with stress. I am so happy to have her support.
Julie has been professional, kind, and really helped with my situation. It is very complicated, and she has helped me feel like I am not losing my mind. She is compassionate and quick to respond. I highly recommend her as a counselor.
