Hi, I am Julie and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in couples & marriage. My goal is to help couples achieve a secure connection and heal from old wounds that may be impacting their relationship satisfaction. I help couples with a variety of concerns including sexual issues, infidelity, communication struggles, emotional closeness and intimacy.

I believe in an attachment model to understanding relationships: that we either learned connection was safe and comforting or we learned it was not. These early messages about safety in relationships have a meaningful impact what happens when we try to be close to others. Understanding your beliefs about connection, safety and yourself are central to the work we will do together.
