Hello & Welcome!
I’m Julie, and I provide individual counselling in-person, virtually or over the phone to struggling teens and adults who are having difficulties coping with the natural yet often painful ups and downs of life. I believe that even the most confident and capable of us can sometimes get stuck in challenging circumstances and unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that unwittingly takes us away from what matters most. My approach to counselling can help you learn new ways of understanding, relating to and coping with your painful experiences and encourages you to take intentional steps towards a rich and meaningful life.
I’m a Victoria-based therapist and certified life coach with almost 20 years of clinical counselling experience working with youth and adults. Working together, I can help people learn to cope more effectively with a variety of challenges, including:
- Worry and anxiety
- Low mood and depression
- Stress, overwhelm, perfectionism
- Grief and loss
- Interpersonal relationship challenges
- Difficult life events from the past and trauma
- Support and accountability for achieving a long term goal
- Gender identity and sexuality
My approach to counselling is one of collaboration, rapport, respect and compassion. I integrate many evidence-based practices, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), mindfulness and self-compassion practices and a somatic-body and attachment framework.
