Julie graduated from Columbia International Universities CACREP accredited master's program in Mental Health Counseling. She has experience providing in-school therapeutic care to students and their families. Julie developed exceptional skills in facilitating an environment of empathy and believes that rapport is the foundation for change in any therapeutic relationship. Julie is passionate about providing a safe place for exploration, change, and accountability.
She works with individuals of all ages and especially loves working with anxiety. Throughout her graduate program, Julie realized she wanted to be a lifetime learner in the counseling field. Currently, she loves reading books and listening to podcasts about topics relevant to ALC clients.
When she’s not at the office, you’ll find Julie going on mountain hikes or beach trips with her husband, taking exercise classes, reading books at coffee shops, or taking care of her two Holland Lops.
She is new to North Carolina and loves it. Also, since she got her bachelor's from Clemson University, she is forever a Tiger’s fan!
“When I saw A Little Counseling specialized in anxiety, I knew it would be a great fit because I am also passionate about anxiety and continuing to grow in my ability to treat it. A Little Counseling was the clear choice for me, especially after meeting members of the team and seeing how supportive and positive the environment is. I also loved the organized and peaceful atmosphere of the practice. I am incredibly excited to be a part of the team!”
