Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois. I have been working with families and individual clients of all ages for 10 plus years. I am motivated by helping others work through their unique life experiences. When we struggle, sometimes we need help navigating through life's challenges. Finding healthy ways to express ourselves, and communicate our needs is crucial to our well-being. I am particularly skilled in counseling people with behavioral issues, impulse control, depression, self esteem, anxiety, identity, relationships, and conflict resolution. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma and emotional abuse.
I take great pride in my attentive and interactive counseling style. My everyday life approach has always been positive and empathetic. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, and client centered therapy, in addition to utilizing clients strengths. My focus with clients is to create a safe, therapeutic environment conducive for growth and change.
I look forward to working with you!

Julieann is such an important source of support in my life. She’s helping me unearth things I’ve kept buried for decades by simply proving safe space and endless encouragement. I’ve worked with half a dozen therapists and nobody has ever gotten me to open up like this before. I am grateful to have found her!
