About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 18 years of experience. I earned my Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan in 1999 and have been providing outpatient counseling services since then. I specialize in helping people who have been affected by trauma and abuse, as well as those struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-esteem issues and relationship issues.

I believe in meeting my clients where they are at in their struggles with a warm, welcoming approach. In treatment, I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. I am also DBT-informed and have special training in trauma, marriage counseling, and grief and loss. I am passionate about making connections with people and guiding them through their struggles.

I believe it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help and I hope that I can help you along your journey!

Julie has helped me a lot with my anxiety. I was unable to even go to counseling in person, so the online option was very helpful. She is quick to respond and addresses all of my concerns. She's provided me several ways to work on my issues and all have helped me overcome them.
