Hi! I'm Julia, I've been providing counselling, advocacy, and support for over 20 years to children, teens, their parents and families in the Public and Private School Systems, residential programs, and long term treatment homes.
I specialize in working with Couples, Teens, Children, and Families offering unconditional support, understanding and trust. I provide a non-judgmental and accepting atmosphere where you can be comfortable in sharing your most sensitive and confidential struggles verbally or through the modalities of play, art, or sandplay.
Through my personal journey I've learned to embrace and celebrate what sets me apart as an individual, which has lead me to recognize and encourage the strengths in others. Together through celebration and reflection, I help clients of all ages recognize, and maximize their unique and authentic selves.
Whether you’re struggling with your partner, your teen or your younger child
– I have been there, and now I am here to help.
- I specialize in helping teens feel heard, appreciated and understood, by reflecting back the thoughts, emotions and actions I see, allowing an opportunity build self- esteem and confidence as they reconnect to their true selves and align with their full potential.
- I support children and youth to express and heal at their level and their pace using therapeutic play, art and sand (Children's natural learning tools) allowing change to occur with or without verbal communication.
- I also work with parents and couples through providing a safe and confidential place where they can be open to trusting and reconnecting with themselves and others, while learning to identify and stop patterns that have developed over time that might be blocking a brighter future.
My personal life lessons and losses, specialized education, training, and experience has equipped me to help you navigate through your own journey. Thank you for viewing my profile and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. It is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey, I believe.
If you are in Grey, Bruce, Wellington or Huron Counties are ready to start achieving your goals, and living a more fulfilling and meaningful life- Give me a call at 226-230-3433 for a free 20-minute consultation and I will help you discover how.
You are worth it, and it is possible.
