Julie Tallard Johnson


About Me

Hello and welcome! Something in your life brought you here in your search for help. I want you to know that you’ve come to a good place. I know how it takes wisdom and courage to seek out counseling support. I want to help you explore what is possible for you. Each of us can tap into our resilience and creativity even during the most stressful of times. I know too that sometimes we just need someone to talk to, who can listen without judgement. I am here for that.

Here is a little about me and how I would assist you:

I have a Masters in Social Work and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with over 3 decades of working as a therapist both face-to-face and online. My therapeutic style involves helping you to gain personal insight, simple strategies, and tools that you can use immediately to make positive choices and movement in your life. I consider you the captain of the ship, where I am the navigator, so, – you tell me where you want to go and I come up with several ways for you to consider, to get where there. You will always direct the session; I am here to help you discover the best internal and outward route to take to get to where you want.

I have also authored several books on living a healthy and fulfilling life, healing from trauma, and cognitive-behavioral approaches to well-being, where I introduce simple tools to living a fulfilling life. Much of my work is about living life from the inside out – and how our emotions, beliefs, past traumas and attitude influence our outward and present day experience. I also use an educational approach with references to other resources that may help you, such as books, movies, on-line resources.

We don’t just sit and talk. I love to provide you with simple, usable tools wherever possible that help you between sessions. We can practice these together and then you can see how they may benefit you in your daily life. I rely on these same practices to help me live a fulfilling and healthy life too. I too have relied on therapy, books and mentors to get me through challenging times. Most importantly, we are going to make sure we are making progress on your therapeutic intentions that you have for yourself. In that way, we are in this together. You will experience a true connection to me as your therapist. I am here to guide you, encourage you, possibly even challenge you if I feel you are unknowingly allowing obstacles to stand in your way.

Written by V.I. on Dec 06, 2020 after counseling with Julie for 3 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

The 8 sessions that I have had with Julie have had a surprising impact on my situation, helping to shift my perceptions and move me forward significantly along my path towards healing and happiness. I have felt very supported by Julie, not just within the sessions but also afterwards when she follows up with thoughts and suggestions for reading. What I have found particularly helpful is Julie’s straightforward and pragmatic approach. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her.

Julie has been a guiding force in my journey. She is empathetic, strong and mindful. I have had many obstacles throughout my journey and I am still not a 100% but she has been so positive and encouraging. I would recommend her to anyone who is in a dark place and needs guidance.

Although I have only had a few sessions - Julie is no holds bar- she certainly in a good way helps me to see my stuff- i did not need a soft touch - and even though it hurts - it’s my own and I appreciate Julie supporting me to own it!

I have never tried therapy before, but Julie has set the bar high. She has such a peaceful, knowledgeable aura around her, and she listens and is so patient and professional. I am so thankful for her help.

Finding Julie has been a gift. She understands the things I cant explain, and her ability to find the correct words and tools to reach me at the correct moment is a priceless gift which I look forward to every time I receive that email telling me that I have a message from her.
