Julie Featherman

(LMHC, LPC, NCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (VA) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (FL). I have over 3 years experience working in a non-profit setting, a residential crisis stabilization unit, a community mental health agency, and a private practice, along with nearly 20 years of experience in a variety of fields including marketing, higher education administration, and K-12 online education. I have worked with a wide range of clients dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, family and relationship issues, career challenges, and other various stage of life concerns. I also have extensive training and experience working with clients with body-focused repetitive behaviors such as trichotillomania and skin-picking.

My counseling style is warm and non-judgmental and I believe in treating all people with respect and compassion. My counseling approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and solution-focused counseling. I am a collaborative and goal-focused clinician who understands that you are the expert in your own life and I will work with you to tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by H.A. on Apr 01, 2021 after counseling with Julie for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Julie has been the most wonderful therapist over the past 18 months. She provides thoughtful, compassionate counsel, while also having the unique ability to tie back to pertinent themes and discussions. I look forward to our therapy appointments and always leave feeling as if I’ve moved forward towards my goals. I’ve considered myself to be extremely lucky to have Julia as my therapist!

I’ve seen Julie for several months now and she is amazing. She listens and is really easy to talk too. I highly recommend her!

Julie has been helping me for about 6 months now and is a fantastic councillor. She’s always there when I need help but also gives me space when I need to grow. I enjoy working with her and learning from her.

Julie Featherman is absolutely wonderful. Before I started counseling I really thought there was no hope. I was nervous, scared & terrified. Me and Julie clicked instantly, she's very personable, caring and understanding. She's extremely educated and knows all the techniques. Her expertise has helped guide me in the right direction. I have made a dramatic amount of changes while working with her, I absolutely do recommend her 1000 times over. She's wonderful and very helpful.

Julie has helped me to get through the worst time of my life, and to see a way forward. I've had so many breakthroughs and new realisations in our sessions, and the way I think has changed. I feel strong for the first time in years, after 'unpacking my boxes and putting things where they're accessible, but not in the way'. Which I think is a great way to describe therapy. If ever I feel I need help with these boxes of life again, I would definitely come back to Better help and hopefully Julie too.

Julie is an amazing counselor and I'm so glad that I've been able to work with her over the past few weeks. She has helped me navigate some incredibly challenging times and is always there to listen without judgment and with compassion. I'm so grateful to have her in my corner and would recommend anyone going through a difficult time or going through a life change work with her.

Julie was absolutely amazing for me when I needed her. She would regularly send me messages checking everything was okay and my time difference in Australia never got in the way of us booking a session.

Very compassionate and easy to talk to. Thank you for everything Julie.

Very personable and able to construct an environment that I’m completely able to be myself. Supportive of my goals and supportive of my feelings. Just a great overall person!

Written by A.N. on Apr 28, 2020 after counseling with Julie for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

It was my first experience speaking with a therapist and Julie made me feel comfortable to which I was able to open up and be honest. It’s been great to have Julie to listen to me with no judgement.

Written by E.M. on Jan 25, 2020 after counseling with Julie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

Julie is a wonderful counselor. I’ve only had a few sessions but I can tell I’m getting a lot out of our sessions. She is a great listener and always gives me homework and helps me work through what I’m going through. I’m excited to see where our sessions go and how much better I’ll feel!

Written by A.J. on Jan 22, 2020 after counseling with Julie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

I have full confidence in my councilor and I'm so grateful that I have her in this time of my life. My stress levels are so high, that I know that I couldn't do this on my own. My friends are good, but having a professional help me is life saving.
