About Me

As a therapist, Julie offers a multifaceted approach involving techniques learned in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples and individuals), AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), Bowen Family Systems Theory and Somatic Experiencing (Peter Levine’s multidisciplinary approach to healing trauma). She has immersed herself in the study of Stephen Jenkinson and his teachings on grief, aging, and the reclaiming of culture and community. 

Julie has a way of immediately putting people at ease and exudes a warm and friendly demeanor. An initial session will involve assessing the issues that bring you to therapy, defining your goals for therapy, and looking at the behaviors, past experiences, family history, or relationship dynamics that may be contributing to your current dilemma. Clients often feel immediate relief after an initial session with Julie.
Julie’s gentle, but directive approach has helped many couples and individuals overcome hardship and find more ease and harmony in their lives and relationships. Your time with Julie will help you feel more resourceful, empowered, and better equipped to deal with life’s challenges.
