WOUNDED HEALER I have been called: OCD, ADHD, Addict, Alcoholic, Sensitive, Hopeless, Moody, Co-dependent, Crazy. I spent most of my life terrified of these labels, ashamed of my behaviors, at war with myself, defined by the opinions of others. Now I am in partnership with my mind, body and soul, connected to a loving God, and surrounded by healthy people. I am grateful and honored to be helping others do the same.
COMMITTED TO EFFECTIVENESS I am committed to learning and providing the most effective and lasting treatments available in the areas of trauma, addictions, relational issues, attachment disorders, anxiety, self-doubt and loathing, depression, binge eating and drinking, anger and resentment, grief and loss, loneliness and heartache.
CONNECTED TO A TRIBE Married with two wonderful step-daughters, and part of a tribe of watermen/women, I learn my greatest lessons and experience my greatest joys within these close relationships.
LIVING EACH MOMENT I strive to live with what is present, possible and beneficial. I’m not there 100%, but it’s sure a better way to be. My hobbies, exercise, and pastime activities reflect what honors me, husband, and God. Currently, I enjoy building water fountains, raising chickens, brewing Kombucha, bodysurfing, and cooking with my Chef Husband.

I do not discriminate against race, religion, sexual orientation, culture or personal preference. I do not discuss my personal beliefs unless asked and I will not judge you or attempt to change your personal beliefs. Counseling and coaching services invite a rich mix of thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs, behaviors, customs, needs and goals into the therapy room. Thus, it’s important to create and support an individual therapy environment that is sensitive to this diversity. This is done through both understanding and respecting the various academic, socioeconomic, ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds, disability, and sexual orientations that clients bring in to the therapy room. I am sensitive and accepting of this diversity and open to assisting anyone who desires to feel better and live more fully. Julie
