The step towards seeing a professional is an individual journey. Therapy in any form is intended to be helpful and supported with no hidden agendas or surprises. Julie works for you at all times and this means she meets you where you are at on a given day.
A therapeutic relationship is like no other relationship in your life. This process is about and for you. At all times. You are always encouraged to speak candidly about the process and anything that may not be working for you. Through our therapeutic relationship the therapy process teaches and informs you ways of living your day-to-day life that is different.
Be prepared to attend a minimum of three sessions each once a week to start your therapy journey. Therapy is an investment you chose to make to better your life.
