Master of Social Work
Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate
Julia has always had a strong desire to help others in her community. Julia is particularly passionate about helping adolescents and young adults (13-30 years old) navigate thoughts and emotions that can coincide with stress, social anxiety, low self-esteem, transitional periods, family/friend issues, work/school issues, general anxiety, and mild-to-moderate depression.
Julia utilizes a mix of CBT, ACT, and mindfulness based practices. She does not believe that “once size fits all” and will work with you to determine you and/or your child’s needs. She believes in a wholehearted approach to therapy (and life too!); She strives for each client to feel heard, valued, and cared for in each session.
Julia graduated Magna Cum Laude from William Peace University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Biology. Julia then attended North Carolina State University to receive her Master of Social Work. She graduated in Spring 2020 with honors and became a License Clinical Social Worker Associate. Julia’s first year practicum was in an intensive in-home setting, as well as a private practice setting, primarily working with children and adolescents (5-17 years old). She practiced child centered play-therapy, CBT, and ACT. She gained experience treating for children experiencing trauma, anxiety, ADHD, mood disorders, and autism spectrum disorder. Her second field placement was at a partial hospitalization program/intensive outpatient treatment setting for adults (18+) struggling with mental health conditions such as: personality disorders, bipolar disorder, OCD, autism spectrum disorder, depression and anxiety. Here she led mental health groups and worked with clients one-on-one utilizing DBT, ACT, and CBT as evidence-based practices.
Julia has been married since June 2018 to her husband, Ben. Julia enjoys finding new hobbies such as crochet or painting in her free time. She also loves spending time with her friends and family on the weekend.
