Greetings, my name is Julie Peterson, and I would love the opportunity to brighten your family's life. Understandably, life can be challenging at times, so let's work together through those times. Healing and growing come from working together towards a common goal. Over the past 25 years, I have worked as a social worker with children and their families. My experience ranges from working with children as young as four to adult clients. Children are my specialty, but I'm willing to use my skills to help anyone.
