Julie Simons, LCSW
I am a psychotherapist in private practice working with men and women of all ages with various issues. I have training in helping people resolve trauma and use an individualized approach to deal with a wide range of issues from coping with divorce, major life changes, accidents/disaster victims and past sexual, physical and/or emotional abuse. I also have many years experience in working with depression, anxiety as well as supporting others in their personal growth. I have a former specialty with children and teens and continue to see this population on a case by case basis; however, I most of my work is with individual adults.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Julie Simons "Every therapist has her or his own personal and professional style. In an effort to describe mine, I would say my approach is both personal and eclectic. Each individual that enters my office comes in with a unique history and perspective, and I make a conscious effort to understand and become familiar with their very personal experience of life. No one approach works for everyone. That's why I like having many "tools in my toolbox." I work with each person to get clear on his or her goals and together we develop a clinical strategy to work toward a common purpose. Though some people seek a more directive approach, while others require more validation and support, my personality generally reflects a gentle, empathic approach. Ultimately, I consider myself somewhat of a wilderness guide with a flashlight, perhaps just one step ahead of my client providing light and focus where needed."

Amazing!!! Very empathetic, she doesn't just listen, she hears and rephrases. As a trained counselor it is challenging to find someone that can rise to my level of expectations and Julie Simons always does. She pushes when I need to be pushed, but never to hard and is cognizant of my hurt and expresses such. Homework assignments reflect what we are working on in counseling and agreeable to alter focus should larger issues arise.
Thank you for taking the time to write this feedback. Knowing that you've benefited from our work is very validating and much appreciated.
