Julie Gislason


15 years of experience

I am a psychotherapist with over 15 years of clinical experience. My work experience includes outpatient mental health, individual and couples therapy, support groups and substance abuse treatment. I am passionate about working with people who struggle with depression and anxiety. These are very treatable conditions and I offer a personalized approach that gets results.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment that allows you to explore obstacles or concerns related to anxiety, depression, and/or relationship/family conflict. Therapy shouldn't be complicated. Let's see if we connect and go from there. We’ll create a concrete plan that includes evidence-based techniques and work through it together until you meet your goals and start to feel better.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I strive to connect to my clients with empathy and curiosity. I get to have really meaningful, sometimes life-changing, one-to-one conversations with people about what really matters to them. This is what I am passionate about and makes me get out of bed every day.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of talking therapy. CBT teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems. It focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and actions.


EMDR involves talking and bilateral stimulation, typically eye movements. The aim is to reduce distress and negative beliefs associated with past overwhelming or traumatic experiences that are having a significant impact on our mental health.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a counseling approach designed to help people find the motivation to make a positive behavior change. In motivational interviewing, I help people explore their feelings and find their own motivations.
