Trauma, anxiety, depression, and grief related to past and present life events, relationship conflicts, worsening of symptoms, or the bad consequences of even the best decision making can injure your heart and diminish your hope. If this is your time to experience relationship challenges, betrayals, stressors, or losses that unexpectedly provide you with swift kicks that knock you face-first into the dirt, therapy will support you and teach you to develop your own plan to dust yourself off. Here you can regain your strength, and experience the empowerment of reconnecting with your goals while you develop new skills for healing and recovery.
For over twenty years, I have partnered with children, adults, adolescents, and families on their individual journeys of healing and restoration. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Master Addiction Counselor and my approach is defined by your goals, challenges, and the plan that is most supportive of your healing and recovery.

Julia is an incredibly thoughtful therapist. She took her time to get to know me and the issues I am dealing with. She encouraged me when I was right and cheered me on and corrected me when my actions were not beneficial to the process. I would highly recommend her and can’t thank her enough for helping me.
Julia is wonderful, she's so nice and considerate. I truly feel she listens to me and is confident in her field. She is so skilled, she has a knack of picking up on traits and issues without me even specifically saying anything. I feel much better and motivated towards self improvement. Could not thank her enough!
Julia is kind, an excellent listener, and genuinely invested in seeing me progress and succeed in my counseling and life goals. She does an excellent job of re-articulating my concerns and choices for plans of action without "steering" our conversations, or coloring g them with her own biases. I'm so greatful for her help. She's an absolute blessing and I highly recommend her.
Julia is great. I would recommend her to anyone.
So far so good - only three sessions in, but I like that she takes the time to repeat back to me her interpretation of what I'm trying to express and help me understand it better. She's great at explaining her thought process or defining what she's thinking in a way that's every easy to understand. She's been great at finding articles she think can help me and, as someone who likes to research, it's nice to ready up on things we talk about during sessions.
Julia is absolutely amazing! She is an excellent listener and really helps me gain a better perspective on what I’m going through. I’m so thankful to have met her and hope more folks get the opportunity to work with her!
Julia knows her stuff. She’s so down to earth and easy to talk to. Grateful to have her.
Julia is an amazing counselor! She helped me navigate and understand my emotions when I was feeling extremely overwhelmed by life. She challenged my perspective which allowed me to switch my thinking from "what should be" happening to "what is" happening which allowed me to become much more present and truly work through my experiences. I now have a better understanding of myself and my triggers and have acquired tools I can use to help me in the future to help cope.
Julie is amazing. Feels like the BFF we all wish we had in our head.
First time using BetterHelp, my counselor is Julie Collins, I immediately felt she would help me to learn who I am, and there is no need to try and be anyone else! I feel heard and seen! Thank you, Julie!
Julia is great!
Julia is honest while remaining supportive and encouraging. She really genuinely cares and is always there to help. She goes above and beyond and I have appreciated all aspects of this counseling experience so far.
It's nice to have a counselor understand what I'm trying to say when I'm having a difficult time trying to explain it. I feel like I've given her a lot of history about why I've been so stuck. It's clear that she really gets it and empathizes with me. I also appreciate her suggestions of some of the concrete steps I can to more easily do some routine tasks, and to improve my overall situation.
Julia has actually introduced me to therapy in such a gentle and understanding manner I couldn't be more grateful. She's really helping me put things back into place slowly but surely.
