Hi, my name is Julie.
I believe that all experiences – whether negative or positive – have a major impact in our lives. My passion is to help individuals and families who have experienced negative events to continue their growth. I believe every person is in charge of their story, but sometimes they can benefit from assistance with their narrative.
I am comfortable working with many individuals, ranging from speaking preschoolers to middle-age adults. I have worked with individuals and families seeking to cope with a variety of challenges, including ADHD, PTSD, human trafficking, sexual abuse, anxiety, blended families, chronic illness and personality disorders. I also work with couples to help address relationship conflict, communication, trust issues and financial concerns.
I am available to provide a Christian counseling perspective, but I love working with clients from any walk of life. I utilize several therapeutic techniques – including cognitive behavioral, experiential and structural therapy – to meet the needs of my client.
I completed my clinical licensure in February 2015. I received my Masters in Family Therapy at Friends University in Wichita, Kansas, in 2011, and I have nearly 10 years of experience working with families in the home, including more than five years as an in-home therapist. I have trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), a psychotherapy treatment used in working with trauma clients, and I plan to become certified.
Therapy is not always easy, but I would be honored to help you write or re-write the story that you deserve!
