Julie

Hi, I’m Julie. I am an intern with the Mancos Valley Center for Trauma and Attachment and am currently a student in the Adams State University Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. I am passionate about self-expression through the creative arts, especially song/vocal reclamation, movement practices, writing, and storytelling. Engaging in these practices in the natural world is home base for me.

I believe in the innate wisdom and intuitive nature within each individual to guide the way through their healing process. I operate from a person-centered approach to counseling, meaning that I truly believe you are the expert of your own life and that within each person is the desire and ability to move toward growth. I aim to support your self-exploration and movement toward integration and wholeness.

I received my BS in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and my MS in Education from Duquesne University. I will complete my MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University in May 2025. I am trained in the Nurtured Heart Approach® and a certified yoga instructor (RYT-500) with nearly twenty years of teaching experience.
