Julie is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and specializes in helping people with anxiety, self-esteem/body image, and burnout from stress.

Why Just Trees?

When I first started learning how to surf I was dealing with a lot in my life. I had a lot of fear and anxiety, and was struggling to cope and move past anxiety. One day when I was surfing, I got out past the break and I was finally able to sit still and feel a sense of peace. I was able to notice the tree line and notice just trees. There was still grief, there was still fear, but I finally felt resourced enough, which means I felt connected to myself and to my surroundings. I felt I was able to cope with whatever life sent my way.

A big part of therapy is having a counsellor support you in discovering your own resources so that you feel more connected to yourself and others, experience less anxiety, feel more grounded and more in control of your responses and decisions to start living the life you want.

My Philosophy

I believe that you are the expert of your own life, and I will work with you to access your own inner strength and knowledge so that you feel more empowered to create the life you want to be living.

Who I work with

I offer therapy for people who are wanting help with anxiety, disordered eating, and burnout and stress, gaining confidence, and much more.

About me:

I grew up on the beautiful west coast and love to be out in nature surfing, hiking, paddle-boarding, diving in the ocean, photographing wildlife (especially orcas) and going on walks with my dog!

Therapeutic approach:

I use a narrative approach, helping people externalize stories they may have heard from out side of themselves growing up or from society, that are not in alignment with their true self.

I was also trained in Response-Based Practice; which looks at people’s inherent ability and strength in responding to adversity & trauma. Examining people’s resistance to violence/abuse can help victims resolve feelings they have of being responsible for the trauma that they experienced.

I am also in training to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), which focuses on helping people process trauma, reduce anxiety and heal from chronic stress through developing tools to support the nervous system, focusing on a “body-first” approach to healing.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
