I am so glad you are seeking help and support at this time in your life. This is an important time in development and there are a lot of things going, a lot of pressure and stress that you may under which can be contributing to how you are functioning.

It takes strength and courage, both of which you possess in order to start this journey.
My counseling style includes Cognitive Behavior Therapy to help make the connection between behaviors, thoughts and feelings to gain a better understanding of how you are a functioning in life. I also incorporate some mindfulness including progressive muscle relaxation, deep-breathing and imagery that can ultimately improve your quality of life.

I believe that everyone has the ability to explore what is healthy for them and knows innately what will help them grow, they just may need guidance and support to see that through.

I am very pleased that we can count on Julie for support!
Julie is a good listener and gives me things to think about after each session. She always responds back when I message her or share my journal and I believe she cares about me.
Julie has been absolutely amazing. She has listened to my concerns, helped me to feel supported and less alone while I navigate unfamiliar waters with a situation I have never faced before. She is easy to talk to and comforting as well as encouraging and positive. I am so grateful for the time she has put into our professional relationship and all of the advice she has given me. She has helped me to start to feel like myself again.
