I utilize a trauma informed lens drawing upon a range of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
I believe that hurt, disappointment, sadness and grief are a normal part of the human experience. However, we often turn this hurt inward and create even more painful beliefs about ourselves and the world. I create genuine relationships with the people I work with, helping them to address and remove barriers that prevent them from more meaningful, authentic, and purposeful lives. I offer curiosity, new ideas and techniques while helping my clients identify and shift patterns that no longer serve them.

Sex addiction can be scary, overtaking your life and the life of your family .
I have over ten years of experience helping clients, particularly sex addicts, with the challenging, often frightening task of achieving their potential. When people come into my office, they are usually stuck. Stuck in destructive, out of control behaviors. Stuck in ways of coping with past traumas that are not allowing them to move forward. Their distress at being stuck is palpable, as is their motivation to move forward with their lives. It is this motivation I begin with, the strength it takes to honestly face what isn't working. Together, we can transform being stuck into flying free.

I have treated clients with a wide range of issues, but I specialize in helping women to better understand and manage some of the "typical" life events that often cause distress but may go untreated. I am passionate about helping clients gain a better understanding of how early childhood experiences and family culture have impacted their current functioning and self-esteem, and how those play a part in their ability to manage life's milestones. Significant issues related to relationships, career, parenting, family and social interactions are so common, but are often ignored because they are "normal". Change is possible!

I incorporate family systems, attachment theory, and 12-step informed practice into much of my work.
I am committed to co-creating a soft, genuine, relational space for my clients to get to know their inner systems. I have a graduate degree in Social Work, and I am trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS). I have been engaged with the IFS model for over eight years, and it is the primary model I use for psychotherapeutic work. I have assisted as a staff member on three Level 1 IFS trainings, helping other therapists and practitioners learn the model.

My clients often struggle with relationship issues stemming from early childhood trauma; this results in coping mechanisms that work, but may carry a big price tag. They may grapple with sexual abuse, partner violence, sexual orientation and/ or disability related issues. Often, these manifest as substance abuse, cutting, communication problems or self- isolating behaviors. They may have friends and family members who do not truly "see" them, and as a result their own view of self is dim. Other clients are coping with situational anxiety and depression related to Covid, and need to establish safety, structure and hope.

Julie views the therapeutic relationship as a supportive alliance that is formed through the sharing and exploration of one’s unique and sacred personal story. Julie believes that through sharing your story and engaging in a process of exploration, the lingering effects of past traumas can be released, as well as patterns that no longer serve you. Julie is an expert at supporting clients who are going through or seeking life transitions, navigating family relationships, and working through anxiety, depression, and trauma.

When you determine that you should seek counseling services I keep in mind that each individual is different biologically, psychologically, sociologically and economically. I also understand that receiving a diagnosis will have an impact on you, your family , friends, lifestyle and social situation. As a counselor I am aware that left untreated many disorders can escalate and in some cases as in substance abuse cause chemical changes in the brain, with mental disorders left untreated can have a negative impact on your life.

What are the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves? Where do we learn them? Therapy is a great place to start creating new stories that are more aligned with your values and desires. I believe that healing happens in the relationship and approach therapy as a creative, collaborative experience between therapist and client, where humor, kindness, and self-expression are valued and encouraged. My areas of expertise include working with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma and family conflict, though I work with individuals of all ages to help them manage the stressors of life and achieve greater self-awareness

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
