About Julie

Do you experience ongoing conflicts in your most intimate relationships? Are you a new parent struggling with the loss of desire or intimacy with your partner? Are you overwhelmed by chronic pain, anxiety, or depression? Do you have sleep challenges that impact you deeply on a daily basis? Or are you looking for new meaning in life following an abrupt life transition? These uphill battles do not need to be faced alone. Join me in therapy as we explore facing these challenges together and finding solutions to meet your unique needs.

My style as a therapist is warm, empathic, creative, and encouraging. I offer thoughtful questions to inspire shifts in perspective and enhanced self-awareness. I am likely to gently challenge you to think, feel, and act in different ways to promote healthy relationships with others and with yourself. I aim to help you feel deeply seen, heard, and understood in each of our sessions together.

It would be my privilege to help you navigate difficult life experiences including:

    • The loss of intimacy and desire with your partner
    • Communication breakdowns with your partner or children
    • Chronic pain, anxiety, or depression from a motor vehicle accident
    • Getting passed over repeatedly for that big promotion at work
    • Being “on edge” and constantly feeling the need to keep busy or be perfect

I am completing my Master of Counselling Psychology (MCP) degree at Adler University and am a student member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). Prior to graduate school I attained a bachelor’s degree from Simon Fraser University and founded three small businesses. I have also provided play-based behaviour intervention for autistic children, authored and published a best-selling parenting book, and worked for a decade in the construction industry.

Although I can always remember having an interest in understanding how others think and what might motivate them to act in certain ways, the greatest catalyst toward eventually becoming a therapist was being in a motor vehicle accident back in 2011. Along the road to physical recovery, I embarked upon an incredibly rewarding and profound path to emotional recovery as well. To my surprise, therapy provided me the precise tools I needed to self-regulate, understand my life patterns, and drastically improve relationships. Through therapy I had experienced genuine validation and undivided attention unlike I had ever encountered before. I have since been a strong advocate for counselling and am grateful to now be able to help others in this highly meaningful work.

My areas of specialization include:

    • Borderline Personality Disorder
    • Obsessions and compulsions
    • Insomnia and sleep difficulties
    • Depression and anxiety
    • Dissociation
    • Trauma processing
    • Self-compassion
    • Forgiveness
    • Desire and intimacy in couples/partners
    • Consensual non-monogamy
    • Boundaries and assertiveness training
    • Workplace conflict
    • Career advancement

The forms of therapy that most shape my practice include:

    • Schema Therapy
    • Jungian Depth Psychology
    • Sand Tray Therapy

I commend you on taking this courageous leap toward resolving areas of distress in your life and choosing to cultivate joy. As counselling is not a one-size-fits-all approach, I look forward to developing an individual therapy that meets your specific needs.
