I am an Individual, Couple and Family Counselor licensed in the State of Indiana. My undergraduate degree is in Marriage and Family Relations. My Master's Degree is in Counseling Psychology, and my doctoral work is also in Counseling Psychology. I have been a professional counselor for 31 years. I have served numerous clients, with a variety of life issues during this time, including anxiety, depression, relationship/intimacy, parenting concerns, self-esteem, motivation, and domestic violence, as well as many others. I have a special interest in helping nurture, strengthen and heal intimate relationships. With emphases on mutual respect; effective communication and conflict resolution skills; understanding what each brings to the relationship; and relationship dynamics; I love working with couple clients to help serve the best interests of their relationship.
My primary counseling style is very relational and respectful. I believe that all persons deserve kindness, sensitivity and understanding. My therapeutic approach includes cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive and psychoeducational styles. While I would never impose my values or beliefs on anyone, I am a Christian who is comfortable providing biblically-based counseling. I tailor this to each client's request and theology. I have served numerous clients who are of other faiths, or no faith, over the years. Applying biblical principals is as individual as any other aspect of the assistance I provide to each unique client.
I love helping others experience growth and health, in themselves and in their relationships. Seeking assistance in this process can be a bit intimidating, and I applaud you for taking this step. I very much look forward to meeting you and helping you in any way I am able.

Julie is certainly helpful and thoughtful to consider both sides. I took on her services for mother and daughter counseling and we have certainly seen progress in our relationship and ability to communicate with one another.
