Hello! I'm Julie
Professionally, I hold a master’s degree in counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Indiana. I have practiced for the last 15 years and have had my own private practice for the last 5 years. Prior to starting my own practice, I worked as a counselor at a local women’s transitional facility as well as at a private practice agency. Prior to that, I worked for 34 years in a large corporation in a completely different career!
I also am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Response (EMDR) and Emotion Focused therapy. I frequently use my extensive experience working in corporate America as part of therapy as I have a deep understanding of workplace dynamics.
Have a question for me?
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” Ecclesiastes 4:10 (Bible version NIV)
I’m a counselor because my journey led me to people who literally “helped me up”. Those people included a therapist. I find it deeply fulfilling to pay forward what I’ve learned over the course of my journey. I have a passion for using the tapestry of my life to help other women. I’ve been in your shoes. I know firsthand the courage it takes to make a decision to seek help. As a result, it is very important to me to ensure you feel safe and comfortable as you begin the hard work of healing and working through your individual pain or struggle. I have a strong Christian faith that I believe saved my life. However, I completely respect a client’s individual beliefs and only bring faith into counseling if you desire that as part of therapy.
