Professional statement

Julie is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a private practice in Royersford Pennsylvania, where she provides individual, group, family, and couples therapies who are seeking to get their mind in balance from trauma, anxiety, and depression. Many people enter therapy believing they are doomed for life. They are not doomed. Therapy will help uncover those strengths you have that have been lost amidst the chaos. Julie walks together with people to shine a light on the underlying issues that are behind these disbalances, while learning their story, making sense of those thoughts and feelings, and creating ways to balance them each day. Her clients will set the pace.

Therapy sessions with Julie be a combination of gaining insight and learning skills to manage those bothersome thoughts . She gently pulls in the aspects of life, explores the root cause of their experiences, unleashing new awareness into their emotional and relationship patterns.

Having personal trauma recovery herself, Julie is uniquely skilled in working with those experiencing trauma and helping to move through those unexpected life changing events that have impacted life. She brings a special understanding of how you can heal from trauma and her environment she provides will help you feel safe and secure to allow the recovery process to unfold.

Julie is committed to maintaining an inclusive practice. With a background in trauma care, she is particularly sensitive to the recovery process, and welcomes a wide range of young professionals, freelancers, executives, parents, and young adults to her practice.


Message to clients

You’ve tried everything you know to do – and yet everything seems so exhausting – so uncertain.

You can build your confidence.

I will help you build a respectful and nonjudgmental culture – toward yourself.

We’ll work together to tell your life stories – all of them. We’ll learn from the recurring themes and discover how they’ve impacted your self-talk.

And we’ll tackle each negative thought. You’ll challenge yourself to change for good. You’ll realize how infused you’ve been to the problem and, more importantly, how to differentiate – and separate – yourself from it.

During the therapy process, we’ll unleash your new perspective and the empowerment that’s always been there inside you.

Getting back to your calm state where you can be fully present in your life is more than just a fantasy.

Over time, the therapeutic process will help you break those thought habits and get you back to your “normal.” You can get back in balance.

When you process those underlying causes back to when they started, you’ll empower yourself to rewire your brain.

You’ll tap into those dormant strengths, patiently waiting for you to reclaim them, and you’ll treat yourself better.

You’ll be fully present again and reclaim your joy.
