I’ve been working with Julie since March (6 months ago) and there aren’t enough words to express how thankful I am to have her as a therapist. She has been wonderful throughout and I highly recommend her to anyone willing to do the work to get to where they want to go. Julie is incredibly professional, personable, attentive, intuitive, well spoken, and accommodating. I find it incredibly easy to talk with her, to confide in her, and to listen to her. The perspectives that she offer in our sessions have become tools for me on a day to day basis and I find them invaluable. A thousand thank you’s Julie!

Written by S.C. on Oct 17, 2021 after therapy with Julie for 9 months

I’ve been working with Mrs. Elliott since the beginning of the year. I was in a pretty rough spot with a recent loss and a problem controlling my emotions and anger around my family. To be truthful, I’m not too sure I’d still have a family without Julie’s help. She has a nonjudgmental and empathetic approach to counseling. Her insights and guidance have really helped me grow as a person and has improved my relationship with my wife and my daughter. I am very fortunate to have worked with her.

My sessions with Julie helped me greatly in understanding my current state, why I react in a certain way to certain triggers. Julie is very patient, empathetic, listens without judgement and shares her professional insight in a way that's easy to comprehend. She also asks questions about my situation that immediately helped myself and my actions better. The information and worksheets she sent me provided some great and constructive points, directly related to my issues, as well as advice on how to handle them and improve gradually. I would absolutely recommend her services to another person!

Julie is really attentive and I could tell that two sessions in she was already connecting dots and helping me reach conclusions I was struggling to reach by myself.

I had a great session with Julie. I felt that she asked excellent questions and had really good feedback. She was good at flowing with the conversation, going deeper when I was able to be more vulnerable and keeping a comfortable, real, intellectual conversation when I was more in my head.

Written by C.R. on Feb 20, 2021 after therapy with Julie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, grief, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Julie has been beyond excellent.
I had my doubts about betterhelp as the first counselor I was paired with didn't seem to engage with me as I was expecting, but after being switched to Julie I now see the potential of this service.
Julie has offered a bunch of support through messages, worksheets, and video sessions, and I have felt she has adjusted her methods to suit me in a very comforting and patient manner.
I was doubtful I would get much from a counseling service but I have been thankfully been proven incorrect.
Thanks Julie!

This has been my first therapy experience and I am really happy that I was matched with Julie. I could tell that she was really paying attention to all of the information I shared with her in our voice sessions and in the chat. She made it easy to schedule appointments and always responded promptly. In just a month's time she was able to share with me a lot of info and advice pertinent to my situation and tools to help me going forward. If I decide to sign up for more counseling in the future, I would definitely want to work with Julie again.
