Hi my name is Julia Burke and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in anxiety, eating disorders, and healing from trauma. My style is an eclectic mix of psycho-dynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and strengths-based. In this, I acknowledge and work through any past trauma that may be impacting current stress and/or disorders. I then work with the client to establish their strengths and provide mindfulness techniques to bring more awareness into their lives.
I began my passion for helping others in college, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Lake Forest College. I then went on to receive my Master's in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago, where I specialized in social work in the school setting. I have a vast knowledge of working with families of special needs children and have a through understanding of the special education evaluation process.
I believe life is an exciting and beautiful adventure. While life has mountains and oceans, it also has earthquakes and volcanoes. Without these traumas that can quite literally rock our world, we would never see how beautiful life can truly be. You are brave, powerful, and beautiful. You have taken the first step in healing. I look forward to working with you!
