She understands the enormous trust that is bestowed to her with each new client, and does not take this lightly. She is honored to work with your family.
Julie is experienced and skilled at working with diverse populations and families who have deep discord and friction.
A cooperative, inclusive ethos guides her work with all members of every family. Her services range from a one-time consultation to ongoing involvement and monitoring. A cooperative, inclusive ethos guides her work with all members of every family.

"Thank you Julie!
I think it was extraordinarily helpful talking to you. I have had a conversation with my sister, mom and dad (separately), since then, and I know that all of those conversations wouldn't have happened without the confidence and guidance you gave."
