North Canton, OH |
Julia is very personable and seems to try to establish a connection very quickly. My teen daughter sees her. Because she is very shy, she likes me to sit in on the sessions so I am able to see first hand how easily Julia is to talk with.
Julia is incredibly helpful. She provides an honest yet optimistic take on every situation. She doesn't pry but still asks enough questions to solve the problem. She genuinely cares about every single one of her patients. Julia never rushes a patient even if they are going over their appointment time.
Cleveland, OH |
I have been seeing Julia for several years and appreciate her candid, straight-forward insight. She is a great listener and experienced counselor. I have referred several friends and family members to Julia.
Akron |
I am a current patient and have been since 2011-2012. Very good, very personable, very helpful and I couldn't ask for a better person to talk to! I mean my commitment for this many years speaks for itself. She's awesome!
Uniontown, OH |
She said "I hear your frustration, give me the opportunity to listen to you. If I am not a good fit for you, I know that I can refer you to someone that will be". Congenial, empathetic, regarding and true.

Good provider. Schedules tight though for appts so need to be proactive and schedule way out and cancel as needed.
Detroit, MI |
She was kind and made me feel comfortable. She listened and had great insight. She opened herself up which made me feel comfortable opening myself as well. I went in feeling sad and anxious that I even needed to be there, but she made me understand that I was completely normal and opened my eyes to things I hadn't thought about.
Canton, OH |
I love how easy it is to talk to julia. Doesn't feel like counseling, feels more like talking to a friend. She keeps herself current and even open to other treatments. I taught her the benefits of CBD and she did not dismiss it like some do.
The first day that my husband and I met with Julia, we were so happy to have found her. She has always made both of us feel completely at ease and unguarded. There's a stigma about counseling and many people are hesitant, but I say you haven't found The right counselor. When it's right, you will feel safe, respected & heard. Having someone help you to develop better communication and/or coping skills is something everyone could benefit from. I truly look forward to my appointments with Julia.

I have been going to Julia Appleby for just under 2 years. She is a very pleasant person. she actually listens to you. she will then give you suggestions and help you to work it out. on the following appointment she will always follow up with you. our appointments have always ended on an upbeat note. She actually seems to care about you as a person. she makes sure you know who your support is and who to call for days when you feel like you can't go on anymore. Office staff is very friendly
