She has experience practicing with individuals, families, and groups, with a focus on evidenced-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral and Acceptance and Commitment therapies, Motivational Interviewing strategies, and Solutions-Focused interventions. Whether working with young adults navigating life transitions or supporting geriatric clients through the complexities of aging, Julie approaches her work with a sense of curiosity, always seeking to understand the unique narratives and perspectives of her clients. Her gentle and collaborative approach creates a safe space for individuals to explore and navigate their emotions, fostering an environment conducive to healing and growth.
