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.

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.

Julie is a fantastic therapist. She's helped me through some really difficult times over the past few months and helped me come to terms with things I was finding hard to deal with. It's been a fantastic adventure - figuring out who I am, with the help from a 5-star therapist.
She is the best! Makes me feel so listened to and understood.
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!
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.
I started therapy a few weeks ago and have had two phone call sessions with Julie. I've really enjoyed therapy and have benefited from each session. I would definitely recommend Julie as a counselor. She is super nice and helpful.
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!
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.
