About Me

Hello! If you are reading this and looking for help, you are exactly where you need to be :) I like to think of myself as an "UNshrink" . I believe in helping to de-pathologize you and whatever it is that you are struggling with, and to help you to experience yourself, situation, partner(s), family, kids, LIFE, in a whole new way. I'm usually a good fit for people that aren't into traditional "therapy" for whatever reason: anxiety, skepticism, bad or unsuccessful past experiences..or if you think you, your family, everything is/are beyond hope! Not true :)

I specialize in de-pathologizing "symptoms" and helping you to see that these "symptoms" are just ways of guiding you to see how you are not truly living the life you were meant to live, because you are not truly connected to who you really are, yet!

I tend to have a very concrete, goal-directed approach. I feel strongly about making sure that you feel you are experiencing measureable progress in the direction you would like to go in, and not needing to be in therapy for long periods of time just talking, without feeling as if anything is getting resolved/changing. I also feel it is important that the people I work with feel deeply heard in their stories.

If this resonates with you, I look forward to possibly working with you soon!

Written by A.N. on May 04, 2022 after therapy with Juleen for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Juleen is a great listener and brings up things I never thought to talk about just from our conversations. She is very professional and truly seems like she wants to help me make progress in my life.

Juleen is helping me get my priorities straight. She has been coaching me on timing, activity level and motivation. I'm hoping over time she'll help me get out of this funk I'm in.

Written by D.A. on Apr 18, 2022 after therapy with Juleen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, anger management, and career difficulties

I have been quite happy with my experience with Juleen

Written by S.T. on Mar 13, 2022 after therapy with Juleen for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

Juleen offers an empowering blend of practical tools and spiritual guidance that opens the possibility for a fuller, more authentic expression of oneself. Juleen has helped me start to trust myself and empowered me to lean into the unique aspects of myself that I now deeply appreciate through our sessions. I’m so grateful for our sessions together and would recommend her to anyone on the seeker’s path.

I have seen many therapists face to face, but Juleen has been by far the easiest to talk to. She gives you a great perspective and trains you to use your brain to work with you rather than against you. I had around 5 sessions with her and that's all it took! I didn't think her techniques would work on me but it did!

She is honest, truthful, and tells it like it is. That's what you need in a therapist.

Written by T.A. on Dec 23, 2021 after therapy with Juleen for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Juleen is amazing and has really helped me process my emotions and sort through some trauma. I would recommend her to anyone needing help through difficult situations or just processing the information in front of you. Juleen definitely deserves a raise btw.

Juleen is one of the best therapists I’ve ever had, and she’s helped me through a lot in the last several months we’ve been having sessions! Super understanding, matches my energy and sense of humor, and isn’t afraid to say things that need to be said bluntly. I feel like I’ve grown a lot as a person with Juleen’s help! :)

Written by J.E. on Sep 30, 2021 after therapy with Juleen for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

I’ve been doing sessions with Juleen for about 6 months now! I especially love how she talks about the brain and how I can target and re-wire my own brain to deal with and think about anxiety differently. Juleen is a great listener, she’s personable and a fabulous sounding board for me outside family support :)

I’ve been working with Juleen for a short time but so far I’ve really enjoyed our conversations and am looking forward to her knowledge and helping me with figuring some things out that I’ve been struggling with.

Great experience. Has been so easy. I have gotten more out of this experience with Juleen than some in-person sessions with other providers. She is amazing.

This world is full of people navigating life’s journey; and I am among them. Juleen’s uber-responsiveness, keen insights, and occasional levity are just what the doctor ordered.
