Healing Your Inner Child & Building Self Worth
Every day I talk with people who tell me they have been wanting to come to therapy for months (or even YEARS!) and they just kept putting it off! There is never enough time, never enough of a reason why, and they want to be able to figure things out on their own.
I understand that desire. Really- I do. But you should not have to do it alone! You don't get a gold star in life for doing it without help. Avoiding your healing only means wasting time not living free- Not living life being the person you know you were created to be!
It's normal to be nervous about starting therapy!
A message from Julie
1- Give (someone) the authority or power to do something.
2- Make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and reclaiming their rights.
Empower Counseling & Consulting
My unique approach to therapy can help you to find the freedom you are looking for. You have the ability to write your own story.
Using a combination of clinically proven methods of reprocessing painful life events, it won't take long to feel and see results and relief!
I don’t give advice
I believe you know yourself and what's best for you better than any professional ever could. I want to help you learn to trust yourself again! I will never tell you what's best for you, however...
However, I don’t leave you to figure it out alone
I’m a very engaged therapist, which means I will challenge you and help you connect dots that you may never have even considered are important. I won't just sit in silence the whole session. I like to think of us as partners.
I dig deep!
While we will always go at your pace, I don’t encourage staying on the surface during therapy. I think it’s a waste of your time and money. Healing happens when you safely face the hard stuff. But with that being said...
I don’t believe therapy should be retraumatizing
Many people avoid therapy out of fear (possibly from bad experiences with therapy in the past, and I get that). There are ways to face the past without retraumatizing your system and I strive to help you find that balance so that it feels like relief rather than pain all over again.
