MACP, SEP, Registered Psychotherapist
Julie is currently only providing services for member clients, including retirees or new recruits.
Julie works specifically from a trauma informed lens with a developmental, strengths based/solution focused and body-oriented approach.
Julie’s goal is always to meet each individual where they are at, not where they are “supposed” to be. Building a strong therapeutic relationship is the first priority when meeting clients and evidence shows this is a good indicator of better outcomes in therapy. She loves her job and what she does and has a passion for helping others. Her approach and technique are what make her a sought after local Ottawa-valley clinician. The Ottawa-valley is where she grew up and raised her two young adult sons.
Julie has specialized training and experience in body-oriented psychotherapy known as Somatic Experiencing® (SE™). This is a psychobiological trauma resolution method for resolving symptoms of trauma and relieving chronic (operational) stress. An SE™ practitioner is required to complete many hours of training both existential and theory plus additional hours of personal sessions and case consultations over a 2-3 year period.
If an individual remains in a fight, flight or freeze response state they can render themselves stuck in the body’s protective motor responses; thwarted survival energy is bound up in the body (for example: clenching, tension, tightness, shortness of breath). This can seriously impair a person’s ability to function with resilience and ease in their daily life.
Trained SE™ practitioners aim to release traumatic shock that remains in the body through their approach. This includes emotional wounds from early developmental attachment trauma in a safe and effective way that aims to help nervous system regulation and re-connect to the life you want to be living.
Julie is a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner and Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario, Canada. Chronic and operational stress + trauma are her areas of focus. She prioritizes active and retired members in her practice.
