Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois. I have been working with families and individual clients of all ages for 10 plus years. I am motivated by helping others work through their unique life experiences. When we struggle, sometimes we need help navigating through life's challenges. Finding healthy ways to express ourselves, and communicate our needs is crucial to our well-being. I am particularly skilled in counseling people with behavioral issues, impulse control, depression, self esteem, anxiety, identity, relationships, and conflict resolution. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma and emotional abuse.
I take great pride in my attentive and interactive counseling style. My everyday life approach has always been positive and empathetic. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, and client centered therapy, in addition to utilizing clients strengths. My focus with clients is to create a safe, therapeutic environment conducive for growth and change.
I look forward to working with you!

Julieann is all one could ask for in a counselor! She is kind, comforting, and attentive. I have had negative experiences with therapy in the past, and I was truly about to give up searching for the right fit, until I met Julieann. It is difficult for me to truly open up without worrying about judgement, but Julieann has never made me feel judged at all.
Julieann does a great job making us feel comfortable with the counseling process. She has done a great job helping us to see our issues from each others perspectives and find common ground on which to try and find compromises and solutions to our issues that make us both happy.
Julieann has been a true joy to work with. She is so empathetic but also provided insight and guidance that we need to make our relationship better. My husband wasn’t too found of the idea of going to couples counseling but he was out at ease when we did our first session with Julieann. We have only had 2 sessions and already so happy with her she was a perfect March for us. Can’t wait to continue to grow as a couple with the guidance and aide of julieann.
