At the core of Julie’s work is the belief that people are people, and problems are problems. People are not their problems. Sometimes problems feel like such a big part of you, it’s hard to see where you begin and it ends. Regardless of the problem, Julie believes that the essence of who you are is not defined by your emotional, relational, or motivational issues.
Julie works with all of her clients from an anti-oppressive framework where you are considered an expert in your own life experiences. Julie and her clients work together in finding how their experiences line up with research and adapting their mental health care to meet what they are feeling and dealing with in their day to day life.
Julie builds therapeutic relationships by discovering her client’s stories through curiosity and unconditional positive regard. Julie brings warmth, presence, and passion to all interactions with her clients.
Julie brings her educational background in feminist theory to her therapy practice, along with 4+ years of experience working with women who are victims of intimate partner violence. Her clinical interventions strongly consider each client’s social location to breathe societal, cultural, and personal context into their experiences.
Julie has also worked other settings such as short term crisis counselling, youth counselling, and emergency shelter services.

The theories I use in therapy: In all my work but especially with eating disorders and disordered eating I use polyvagal theory and somatic experiencing. They focus on the nervous system and are body based approaches. I also use Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Emotion Focused Therapy. I also work from a systemic perspective, I recognize that people exist within the systems they live in (family, romantic relationship, friendships, work relationships, city, country etc).Please let me know if you are needing more or something different.
