Hi there! I’m Julia, and I’m in the process of completing my Master’s in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University.
My professional background is varied, with having owned my own business over the last several years, working with Pearls Space (formerly Howe Sound Women’s Centre) and Sea to Sky Community Services. Working for these community agencies, amongst others, has given me the invaluable hands-on experience to effectively hone my skills working with diverse populations, with complex presenting concerns.
On a personal note, after moving to BC without knowing anyone, establishing a community and investing in my own personal growth became imperative for balancing the complexities of day-to-day life. Currently, in true Squamish fashion, hiking the backcountry, my dog and my bike are some of things that help keep me grounded in the hecticness of life.
I draw from an eclectic background of theories, some of which include Client-Centred, Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, all with the goal of creating a safe and collaborative space where clients can explore their unique narratives and find empowerment in their life circumstances.
I support clients in a number of areas including:
- Overcoming negative thought patterns
- Anxiety disorders and symptoms
- Loss of a relationship or job
- Issues related to self-esteem
- Difficulties coping with life transitions
- Body image difficulties
- Improving interpersonal communication.
I’m committed to creating a space where you feel valued and respected with a deep sense of trust within the therapeutic process. If you want to begin therapy or continue your journey, please book a free 15-minute consultation below. I offer in-person and online sessions.
My rate is $50 an hour; however, if this is a barrier to accessing help, please reach out, as I offer a sliding scale to those in need.
