About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor with a background in human services, education, and social work. I have worked with individuals struggling with the grief and loss of a loved one, domestic violence, trauma, diagnosed personality disorders, anxiety and depression, poverty and homelessness, human trafficking victims, and individuals experiencing chronic pain. Although my experiences are diverse, I have learned two overarching truths: human suffering is universal AND there is always hope.

My style of treatment is person-centered and eclectic. I know that "one-size-fits-all" is never true with mental health treatment. Each client has a unique story and therapeutic goals are developed cooperatively with that in mind. You are the expert on you. I am often described as a warm and empathetic listener, but I am also willing to provide reflective feedback during "stuck" moments in treatment.

If you are ready to move towards a path of healing, hope, and wholeness, contact me and we will begin this journey together.

Julie, as a Christian counsellor, you’ve been a great support through really through an incredibly difficult period in my life. I’m grateful for your overwhelming encouragement and support. I feel like I’m able to adopt coping strategies and mechanisms for the immediate and longer term. Keep up the great work and keep doing what you do because there are a lot of us that need to let our hearts out in a constructive manner without judgement and knowing we’ll feel better once we do!
