About me

I am authentic and direct but a compassionate therapist who will work with you and assist in empowering you to move forward in meeting your goals. I have a particular interest in promoting healthy boundaries and giving voice to your needs in a more assertive manner. I believe a sense of humor is a critical coping skill. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, motivation, self-esteem, confidence, depression, and navigating life changes. I am licensed in Georgia, Wisconsin, Washington, Oregon, and Arizona. I have 15 years of professional work experience. My clinical expertise is in adult mental health, substance use disorders, and trauma, having worked in a variety of settings to include inpatient, residential, jail, crisis intervention, and outpatient mental health clinics. I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) treatment interventions. I have found great fulfillment in helping individuals better manage their emotions, improve their relationships, and overall functioning. I feel honored to listen and provide tools shown to improve overall quality of life. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started.

I know that availability is a key factor in selecting a therapist that can meet your needs. I offer live chat/video/phone sessions on the weekends and weeknights only. I am very accessible via messaging.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Julie Zemke. 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 was phenomenal as a therapist. I had been having a tough time finding a therapist that would listen to me and help me breakdown my thoughts. Julie was fantastic from day 1. I knew she was going to be a great fit for me because the first thing she said in our first session was - "What do you want to talk about?". Which allowed the space to be open to me. She was able to help me through some of the toughest life challenges I've ever had to face and I feel so much better. I am a better wife, provider, daughter, sister, and overall person thanks to Julie! Would definitely recommend her to everyone!"
