Personal

Coming from a divorced home, Julie understands the impact broken relationships have on individuals and families. She spent many years seeking things in the world to fill the emptiness she felt in her heart. After becoming a Christian at the age of 21 she realized that God loved her and wanted to make her whole. Julie was born and raised in the Atlanta area, and lives there with her husband and two children. She enjoys spending time with family, traveling, snow skiing, reading, and spending time in nature.

Vision

As a therapist, Julie believes that mental, emotional, and spiritual healing occurs in the context of relationships. She considers it a privilege to come alongside hurting individuals and join with them in exploring their internal and relational world. Julie welcomes clients as her honored guests and strives to co-create a safe environment to explore the nature of their past and present struggles. Having experienced freedom through her commitment to Christ, Julie wants her clients to know that their past need not define who they are in the present.
