I am deeply appreciative of the support Dr McCune has provided to me. Her attentive listening, encouraging and empowering me at times when I could not see a possibility of change occurring were crucial to maintaining my sanity.
Her expertise has helped me find alternative solutions and take the steps I needed to bring the change relevant to me and my situation.
She would often check on us when things were rough to ensure we are ok. It was very comforting to know and see that we mattered.
I would highly recommend Dr McCune as her warm and encouraging approach oriented towards solutions was felt at every step of my journey with her.
Dr. McCune really helped me through a difficult period in my life and I would highly recommend her. Her non-judgemental, empathetic, and grounded approach to our weekly conversations really provided me the support I needed -- she was a great listener, with actionable advice and words of encouragement. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Dr. McCune.
Dr Mc Cune was very helpful & worked around some difficult circumstances to include a family member in our phone conversations to try to assist in family dynamics. She was kind & respectful; helping me to resolve & make peace with my situation. I highly recommend her.
Julie has been an incredible counselor! She is an excellent listener and cares about what I am experiencing. She has helped me navigate some important life decisions by helping me to see all facets while also listening to my own gut instinct. I value her compassion, her excellent communication, and her knowledge. I strongly recommend Julie!
Julie, is a great listener and asks the right questions.
Dr. McCune is one of the best listener and analytical therapist I ever met, I feel always better after talking to her and she really saved my life and helped me to live a better life
Dr. Julie really helped me out of my depression and gave me great ideas on which direction to head. I would not be in the path i am now without her. I can’t thank her enough and would highly recommend her to everyone!!
Dr. McCune's professionalism and kindness helped me through a very difficult time. She continues to check-in with me which makes me feel valued and respected.
Thanks for your recommendations and help.
I enjoy working with Dr. McCune. She has been extremely helpful in my journey to improving my quality of life. She offers helpful, relatable insight and is very empathetic in regards to my feelings and concerns. Very easy to talk to. I recommend her to anyone seeking a great therapist.
Dr. McCune was very quick to assess some of the key issues and was able to help me navigate same very challenging situations. Very appreciative of her ability to help me accomplish so much and feel so supported during a very challenging time.
Dr. McCune has been my lifesaver she is great at what she does she's very attentive and listens and knows how to make you want to open up to her... I'm grateful for her thank you for all your hard work
Dr. McCune has been incredibly helpful in supporting me through very difficult times. She has helped with identifying diagnosis, creating behavioral change plans, stress management, grief management, relationship struggles and more. She is very professional and knowledgeable!
Very good communications.
I loved working with Julie, she was the best therapist ever.
Dr McCune is a dedicated and effective therapist who has resolved my initial concerns and needs and has mentored me into further exploration of pre emptive issues too.
Very insightful and empathetic and realistic
Great listener and reads in between lines to help additional conversation happen
Dr. McCune is amazing idk how I got so lucky to find her but I have been so thankful for that.
Dr. McCune is an amazing, gifted therapist. She is an excellent active listener who is able to effectively determine the issues and gives excellent strategies to move forward. She is insightful, kind and generous and has genuine compassion for her clients!
I very much look forward and appreciate my sessions with Dr. McCune. She has taken the time and effort to thoroughly understand what I am going through. She has given me good advice, suggested several things to try, and has helped me develop coping skills to enable me to better handle and deal with my problems. I would like to be paired with her again after the holidays, if possible. Thank you, Doctor! Thank you, BetterHelp!
Really enjoy my conversations with her. She’s there to listen and provide feedback.
Dr. McCune is incredibly professional and encouraging. She has been such an amazing support since I've started therapy with her and has helped me through many difficult situations.
I have been extremely pleased with my sessions.
Dr. McCune was spot on with understanding me and my concerns. I am very excited to work with her in the future.
I absolutely love Dr.McCune. She is my lifeline during COVID-19 and all the other stuff going on in my life. My only regret is that i can’t give her a HUGE hug after every session!
Dr. McCune has been extremely helpful in helping me navigate through a very Toxic relationship with my adult son and a tense relationship with my daughter.
I’m learning not to let them “walk on me” any further just to prevent “a problem!” Sometimes it’s better to live your life without their Drama, and just watch “their Monkeys - their Circus!”, from a far!
It’s taken awhile to get here for me .. because as a Mom, you want to fix their boo boo’s! I’ve learned though, from Dr. McCune .. my kids are now adults - time for me to put away the bandaids!
Wonderful, professional and highly recommended. Thank you so much!
Julie has been an amazing support during the past 2+ years as I went through separation and self-rediscovery after 20 years in a largely unhappy marriage. As my spouse began a campaign to alienate me from our four children over the last few weeks, Julie has been invaluable as a support, as a shoulder to cry on, and as a source of guidance and dose of reality when I need it. Thank you so much!
Dr McCune is helping me understand and deal with a variety of issues and is someone I completely trust.
She is very personable, supportive and non-judgmental. Encourages me to look at different angles and reflect. Helps me define and work toward my goals.
Since using the BetterHelp app, I have spoken with 3 counselors to help with anxiety and depression. I’ve been seeing Dr. McCune for 6 months and she has been so helpful! I feel much more confident making decisions, managing my anxiety, and navigating relationships. She is a great listener and asks questions that are very insightful. I highly recommend her as a counselor!
My personal experience with Dr. McCune has been such a blessing. I have been so very distraught, feeling as if options in my life were non existing. Dr. McCune has given me such good care. I really thought with my unique situation, that no one could help me, but Dr. McCune has given me great new avenues to explore. She has given me hope, when hope has not been on my horizon. I very much appreciate her expertise, and I would highly recommend her.
Dr. McCune is very talented. She helped me set my priorities straight from the get go, and she pinpointed what my issues were like a pro, and assisted in finding what are the best solutions. She’s a great listener and follows up quickly on any set tasks. I was at the brink of literally a melt down, but with her help, I was able to get my faith and strength back. So a big thank you to you Dr. McCune.
McCune is a great therapist. I've been through a mess in change on my personal and professional life, and I am not so sure if I'd be hanging on without her.
I like her very much. She is easy to talk to and I feel stronger every time we talk.
I’m really glad I chose Julie to be my counselor. She listens to me and supports me with whatever I want to do. Most of all she understands my concerns and does all she can when it comes to making me feel comfortable in situations. I’m very grateful for her especially when I need to vent.
Dr. McCune and I are just getting started back up again. She does a nice job, and I feel secure divulging my issues to her.
Julie is very kind and understanding of my situation and goals.
Dr. McCune is the best therapist I have ever had. She totally gets me and has helped me through some difficult situations. She has an amazing personality and tells the best stories. She remembers all the details of my life even when we haven't spoken for a bit and genuinely is concerned about my life. I highly recommend her to anyone who has anxiety and needs help managing it.
Julie's been fantastic so far. I tried talkspace and went through 4 counselors and still didn't find one as helpful as she is. Super glad I gave this a try.
Dr. McCune has helped me so much already in a short time! I feel like my life is spiraling out of control and she reminds me that all is well and I can get through it with her support. She is truly a blessing in my life!
Dr. McCune has helped me for over a year. She’s listened to me and really showed me where I needed to go and how I was feeling. She’s amazing!
Dr. McCune is such a great counselor. She always listens to what I have to say and tells me I am not alone. I enjoy beening able to talk to her over the phone. Also, I enjoy that I can message her at any point in the day and she gets back to me as soon as she can. She always gives helpful advice and always believes that I can do something even when I don't always believe in myself.
She is amazing, and very supportive!!
I had been with the same therapist for six years, and I still wanted therapy, but I'd reached a plateau with him. I decided to give BetterHelp a shot, and I'm so glad I did.
Julie is magnificent. She took the time to read my incredibly long first message to get an idea of what was going on in my life and what I want to accomplish with therapy. I refer to her more as a "life coach" than a therapist because she not only helps you figure out what is going on in your head, she helps you figure out what to do about it! She writes thoughtful responses to my messages between sessions, and even checks in on me if she hasn't heard from me in a while. She has extended hours, more-so than my old therapist, and for the cost of one therapy session with him, I have access to multiple sessions a week.
The other thing I can say that sets Julie apart from my previous therapist is that even though sessions are an hour, if she's got time, she will continue until you hit a good stopping place. Most therapists will cut you off after 45 minutes or an hour, even if you're in the middle of some important work, because they have other clients or because you've reached a time limit. Julie is so dedicated to her clients that she will go the extra mile to make sure you're at a calm, decent place mentally before she signs off. She is TRULY one of the greats. I can't recommend her enough!
I have worked with various other counselors, in the past and after only working with her for a short time, I already feel that Dr McCune is the most understanding and knowledgeable counselor that iI have ever worked with! She is kind and empathic. And she is able to get to the root cause of things, in a very reflective and thorough way. If anyone is looking for a great therapist on here, I strongly recommend that you choose Dr McCune....she is the best!
Dr. McCune is an understanding and compassionate person. She has been wonderful in balancing support when I needed it and a firm guiding hand for when I needed that. I wouldn't have gotten through college without her. She is simply wonderful.
She's amazing, I've been through a lot but she always seems to understand what I need.
It has been a rough year for me and I have been feeling pretty lost. In the short time I have been working with Dr. McCune she has helped me find my way back to my path again. I am so grateful!
Wow! Dr. McCune is so generous with her time. She also checks in and makes sure I'm doing ok. Very non judgmental but also pushing me gently forward. Thank you.
Dr.McCune is a lovely and professional counselor. She wholeheartedly listen to people’s need and offer a comfort to people. I highly recommend her.
Dr. McCune has been wonderful so far. I’ve been really stuck in a rut lately and knew I needed to get back into counselling, and I’m glad I was connected with her. She understands my needs and my diagnoses and has been a huge support for me. She’s exactly what I needed! Thank you Dr. McCune!
I was concerned about on-line counseling. I need not have been. I have been to in-person counseling in the past, and I find this to be more valuable in some ways. This has been a wonderful experience so far. Dr. McCune has been a great support of my particular needs. She has been available for written-online counsel as well as telephone counseling. What I like the most about this type of counseling is that you have real-time communication and response. I can relay to Dr. McCune how I am feeling as I am feeling it through this online forum. This gives her real-time insight into the true issues I am having, as opposed to trying to relay these issues/concerns to a counselor once per week, filtered by time and my memory of the events. I am very impressed by this counseling forum.
She is very professional. Always available and eager to help. She is giving me insightful advice, asking me the right questions and allowing me to feel confident about myself.
She is a godsend. I am 30 and have been through more therapists than you could count. Julie is the FIRST one to really commit to me, help me, understand me. She is so intelligent and professional. I learn from her too. She is absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend her.
Dr. McCune has truly been a lifesaver for me! Literally a lifesaver! I do not know what I would have done without her or how I would have made it through my difficult time without her help! I have seen quite a few therapists but Dr. McCune has truly been the best. She is very personable, listens to and addresses All my concerns, and gives me a variety of coping skills and advice. She is very kind and knowledgeable and does not sugar coat anything. She always responds in a timely manner and even checks up on me randomly and throughout the week! She is also always able to fit me into her schedule for a live chat session, which has been very helpful and beneficial. I believe I have made great progress already, and the advice and help she gives me are things I can use during Any tough time and things I can always reflect back on. I often find myself reflecting back on conversations we've had whenever I am down and remembering what she told me and it helps! I highly recommend Dr. McCune and am grateful for her help and support. Thanks to her and BetterHelp for helping get through my difficult time!
Dr. McCune is FANTASTIC. She has a way to combine strong support/guidance with sensitivity and compassion. Her voice has become the "Good Angel" that pops up on my shoulder to combat the "Demon of Anger" that shows up occasionally. And those occasions have become fewer and further between with the coaching she has provided. I would recommend her services to anyone.
Dr. McCune offers a balanced and sensible approach to counseling. She is practical, considers all aspects of a situation and helps you to find solutions that are right for you. She's generous with her time, proactive in making contact and flexible to suit you. She's made a real difference to me.
I have come so far in four months! With previous diagnosis of PTSD, depression and anxiety, I didn’t think anyone would understand. I’m a firefighter and the kind of trauma I have experienced is unique. Julie not only discovered I was undiagnosed ADHD, she worked directly with my school to get me the accommodations i need. I look forward to working with her more! I finally feel like I have someone to talk to who understands.
Dr. McCune has been amazing! She is quick to respond to my messages and really takes the time to write out thoughtful responses that take on board everything that I have expressed to her. It truly feels like she wants to help those she works with get to a better place in their life!
She is empathetic and understanding. She tries to give me tools to be successful in solving my issues.
Before starting with Dr. McCune and Better Help I was a mess of uncontrollable emotion. I was over reactive, explosive and volitle with my interactions with others. Since then, Dr. McCune has been patient, understanding, validating and most importantly essential to helping me manage how I feel. She taught me that my emotions are valid and there are ways to reframe negative thoughts and feelings while maintaining healthier interactions for myself and with my partner. I am so thankful for Dr. McCune because where I was headed was very unhealthy and while I am not anywhere near where I would like to be, knowing she is there helps me overcome the toughest days.
Dr. McCune has been very helpful and accessible every day. I appreciate all of her help. I would recommend her.
A great and rounded counsellor. Good at leading me to draw conclusions and very experienced in life.
Julie and I have worked together for six months. In that time she has helped me face the issues that I came to counseling for, and as more issues arose in my life, she was patient and always there to help me through them. I'm always excited to share with her when things are going well too! I know that when I finish counseling I will be much better off, but I will surely miss her.
Julie is a great counselor. She's been very supportive and easy to talk to. She's the first counselor I've ever seen that I can relate to and that's saying a lot. I'd recommend her to anyone. And if/when I come back to betterhelp she's my first choice.
Very helpful. She understands what the root of the issue is and patiently works with you toward reaching a better place in your life.
Dr. McCune manages to put words to thoughts/feelings I've struggled with for years. I was floored at how quickly she was able to understand what I was experiencing and curate a proactive plan towards my development. I feel like her advice is always personally encouraging and never from a place of recycled phrases, as I felt with my previous (external) counsellor. She always checks in if it's been a couple days of silence and makes me look forward to sharing rather than dreading the thought of opening up. Thank you for all your support!
I am happy with her.
Love Dr. McCune she is has a lot of knowledge and love that she give worksheets.
Dr. McCune is really positive and helpful. She is good at helping me see another perspective of a situation in a very kind way. I definitely recommend her.
I would really like to thank Dr.McCune for all the help and guidance that she provided over past few weeks. When I started off with my counselling with her I was in a bad state of mind and couldn't think through my problems because I felt I had too many issues at hand. She helped me to prioritise them and asked me specific questions which led me to think about the soutions to these problems. I was not expecting to reach this good state so early in my counselling. I'm glad I took this step of seeking counselling.
This is everything you’d want in a counselor. She is kind and considerate. She is efficient and goal-orientated. She is a great listener. She helps but does not make you feel bad about past choices. Even in a short period of time I have learned a lot about myself and how to help myself. Thank you, Dr. McCune. To any of her future clients: you got lucky. So did I!
I really really appreciate her helping me talk through my situations!!
I really enjoy Dr. McCune. She has helped me and still is helping me to feel better about who I am.
Dr. McCune is fantastic. She is thoughtful and to the point. She has gone above and beyond what I expected from online counseling by offering worksheets, conference calls and by checking in with me after a periods of silence on my side. Highly recommend.
I have been in therapy for twenty years with dozens of therapists accross four countries. I am also a life coach. I have had only one session with Dr. McCune, but with her unmatched patience and warmth, I feel she helped me gain deep insight into my issues to an extent that would have otherwise taken many weeks! Her great expertise as a therapist, and her own life experiences from which she draws a wealth of wisdom are obvious. I left the session with gained confidence, optimism an enthusiasm, ready to tackle a difficult abusive marriage that I have been in for thirteen years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! It is people like you who really make a difference in people's lives!
Dr. McCune has been very helpful with stressful situations that I am experiencing. She responds quickly and I have participated in live chat sessions that were amazing. She is good and provides activities to help you with your issues.
Very helpful and understanding, gave valuable support.
I had counseling with Julie over a short period of time, but she has helped me a great deal. She was always very supportive and offered advice that will stay with me for a long time. I would 100% recommend her to a friend, or anyone, who is seeking counseling. Its not always easy to come forward with your own personal problems, but Julie made me feel comfortable and like I was talking to a friend. Thank you again Julie.
Dr. McCune always responds in a timely manner and addresses all issues. She is the best!
Dr. McCune has been instrumental in helping me tackle this past year of major life transitions and loss. She is caring, thoughtful and insightful. She's shown a genuine concern for me and my well being all throughout my healing process. Dr. McCune is a compassionate listener and I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Dr. McCune for your time, your help, and your wisdom.
Dr. McCune has been incredibly supportive, present and helpful through a difficult and transitional period in my life. She has shown great empathy and experience, and has offered effective, proactive solutions that we could try and tweak as we go along to improve and resolve several challenging situations. Thank you! Highly recommended.
Dr. McCune has been fantastic. She has been very empathetically and patiently guiding me through a very difficult transition in my life. She's been asking all the right questions to get me to really examine what I want and what I need to do to move forward. I would highly recommend her!
She has helped a great deal just to have someone to vent and talk to. She is a wonderful person and I don't know what I would do without her to talk to.
A good listener - and insightful. Speaks with authority, in clear and concise language. She encourages you to unfold yourself - and you do not feel embarrassed or threatened in revealing thoughts left unspoken for decades.
In peeling away layer after layer of self, she gently introduces you to - not so much a new self, a new you - but a new way of looking at that old self. And what could be better?
Dr. McCune has been extremely helpful! She is very positive and has guided me to become a much better version of myself. She is there whenever you need her. She truly has been a huge help!!
Dr. McCune is amazing! I am very grateful to have her as my therapist. She has went above and beyond with helping me through a difficult time. She fully listens to what I say, is kind yet honest with her advice (which is what I really needed) and she does not take long to write back to my messages. I also like and appreciate how she checks up on me to see how I am doing. Her advice and help have really impacted me positively; many things she has told me and heradvice are things I can use in the future whenever I go through a hard time, which is what I was looking for in counseling: results and positive changes. I highly recommend her!
Dr. McCune is helping me to work through some serious relationship issues that are affecting my whole life. I appreciate her insights, support and thought-provoking questions.
Dr. McCune answers promptly and asks very helpful questions. She makes me feel better about myself.
Dr McCune is positive and helpful! She has good insights into both my situation and into helping me determine how to move forward. Her perspective has helped me frame how I think of recent events in a way that feels healthier than the self- recriminating mindset I was in. She is prompt in her responses and I am grateful to her and Better Help!
