Message from Julie
As a person-centered therapist, my philosophy is that good therapy begins with taking time to develop a trusting, non-judgmental, and respectful relationship where clients feel understood and valued. I aim to be present, supportive, and accepting- allowing you to just be.
I assist clients with investigating their past and present in an effort to develop a better understanding of how and why they feel the way they do. We work together to identify unhelpful response patterns and what influences them.
Drawing from advanced training in cognitive behavioral therapy, I help clients shift and realign their cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and relational patterns. I provide a safe place for clients to practice and refine new strategies for responding more effectively to the stressors in their lives.
While my approach to counseling is rooted in cognitive behavioral and person-centered therapy, I often incorporate mindfulness practice and elements of dialectical behavior therapy in my work as well. I truly value developing a meaningful and collaborative relationship with clients and have respect for personal values, choices, and lifestyles.
We as humans are always evolving, both as individuals, and as a part of something much bigger than us. Therapy is not just a safe space for reflection, but is is also an opportunity to learn more about ourselves and the world around us. Before becoming a therapist, I began my career as a public school teacher. I often draw upon my background in education to add a valuable psychoeducational component to therapy. Gaining an increased of mental health and wellness helps us create a better road map toward being the best version of ourselves.
