I took my IFS level 1 training with Julie and I'm currently a program assistant (PA) in the same team with Julie. I also had the opportunity to meet Julie in person at the IFS conference and to spend time with her in person. If you are looking for someone who can listen to you actively and ask you and your parts questions that can help you access your inner world in a new way, don't hesitate another minute. Although I haven't had a typical session with Julie, I experience shifts in myself after talking to her in regular conversations. If you feel inspired to work with her, allow yourself to follow that inspiration without any hesitation.

I'm so thankful for my experience with Julie! I came to her, seeking help with a traumatic experience I had at work. Through using IFS (Internal Family Systems), she helped me acknowledge and listen to all my different parts that had been triggered and affected. I left our session feeling much more grounded and at peace with the situation. She is loving, caring, and gifted in what she does. I highly recommend her!

Julie strikes a remarkable balance between being prepared, offering structure and a professional presence, on the one hand, and being relaxed and responsive to what's happening in the moment, on the other hand. She brings clarity, sensitivity, helpfulness, and availability in this way.
