NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
Hey there, my name’s Julie and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor.
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” – Anais Nin
In our lives we experience moments where our shame overwhelms us, and our lives are limited by our fear of failure.
We don’t even want to try, frozen by a sense of who we could be and afraid to try and reach for it. Our anxiety holds us back, constrains us, making it difficult for our lives to expand and grow.
We feel we have no courage.
But if you are reading this, then you do have courage.
It takes courage to reach out for help, to seek counsel, to ask for what we need when we are at our lowest points in life.
You have already taken that first step, just by looking.
And I feel grateful that your search has led you here.
Let me tell you a little about myself and how I work.
From an early age, I had a deep curiosity about the world around me and, more specifically, people: I was both an avid reader and frequent observer of everything that came my way. I was fascinated by the variety of human experience, the challenges that people are able to overcome, and that process of metamorphosis.
My interests led me to graduate school at Georgia State University and my own personal therapy, where I expanded my knowledge as well as developing greater self awareness. This was both the best and most difficult part of my life, as it required me shifting from observer to participant and confronting my own personal barriers.
As a result of both my knowledge and personal experience, I believe that the therapy process can open doors we didn’t know existed and I have seen the power of allowing ourselves the messy and often painful process of change.
My work experience has covered a wide range.
I’ve worked treating adolescents and adults in inpatient settings, residential programs, and outpatient private practice.
I feel particularly drawn to working with men and women struggling with anxiety and depression and experiencing challenges due to difficult life transitions.
I have found it is important to use a wide variety of techniques that tap into the creativity and individuality of each client. Therapy is a collaborative process and I feel honored to help you find your own path for growth.
