Hi, I'm Julie--it's nice to "meet" you! Anxiety and depression affect so many of us every day. Spiraling thoughts, racing heartbeat, inability to sleep, feeling withdrawn at social events--these are just a few examples of how our anxiety gets in the way of our enjoyment and ability to live our lives. Anxiety and depression also increase our stress level and may prevent us from having healthy interactions with coworkers, friends, family members. Think of it this way: if our mind has us focused on the past or the future, how can we enjoy our present relationships.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Whether you're looking for extra support, guidance through a challenging situation, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
Through a solution-focused approach, we will work together to identify your source of stress, devise goals for your life, and plan personal, achievable ways that you (yes, you!) can take steps to get control over your thoughts, instead of your thoughts controlling you!
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I frequently support and encourage women who are dealing with pregnancy, post-partum issues, and general parenting concerns. I also provide counseling to young adults as they are trying to find the best fit on their career path, formulate goals for their lives and manage the stresses of life after college.
