I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, incarceration, dissociation, psychosis, sexual behavior issues, trauma and abuse, PTSD depression, coping skills, career challenges, OCD, and eating issues. I have a special interest in working with LGBTQIA+ clients with specialized training for supporting transgender clients.
My therapy style is warm, interactive and person centered. I believe everyone has the ability to find healing and you are the expert on you! My role is to support you and provide resources as you find your way to healing. It might be cliché, but life truly is a journey. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, as well as narrative and solution focused therapy. I will tailor our work together to meet your specific needs based on my training in Polyvagal Theory, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Ego States, Internal Family Systems, Attachment Based, Strength Based, Trauma and Abandonment, Eye Movement and Desensitization (EMDR), and Gottman's Couples Therapy.
It takes courage to reach out and ask for support towards a happier and more fulfilling life. That courage will serve you well.
I look forward to working with you!

Jullie has been a great help in all aspects of the sessions I have attended. I began the first couple weeks feeling overwhelmed by the facts she was offering. By the third week my emotional experience began to work with my progression and all that I've needed for years has finally been found through the professional and well caring therapy provided by Jullie. I am so thankful for one of the toughest decisions I have ever made. Now I'm only happy I made that decision. I'm healing and have no doubt I will keep making great progress.
