About me

The road of life can be unpredictable. Sometimes it takes you exactly where you want to go. Sometimes you encounter detours and accidents. As a licensed therapist for over 25 years I’ve treated just about everything. Now I have the freedom to focus on the areas I’m really good at and the ones I really enjoy: anxiety, depression and change of life issues.
Additionally I’ve always loved teaching parenting skills and now with 2 adult children established and our relationships on firm footing I do so with credibility not just theory.
Every decade in life can be wonderful and difficult all at the same time.
I look forward to helping you find your inner strength and perhaps learn some new useful life skills. It takes courage to begin but you’ve got this!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Julie Rider. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Julie is very easy to talk to and excels in listening to my thoughts and feelings. She helps me weed through the “stuff” and helps direct me to the real issues. Worksheets and our conversations help me to focus and address specific things.

She listens and is understanding and helpful.
