Julie is excited to be a part of the Willow team and is looking forward to using empirically validated treatments for children, teens, and adults with OCD, OC spectrum disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, BFRBs, and perfectionism. She has a keen interest and extensive experience in using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to enable clients to live more fulfilling lives aligned with their individual values. Julie is excited to help clients overcome challenges and live a more fulfilling life and tailors her sessions to clients' individual needs and values. In addition to using CBT, she uses a biopsychosocial approach to better understand and treat clients' mental health concerns. She enjoys and has experience working with clients from diverse ages and backgrounds, including individuals from various cultures, sexual orientations, disabilities, and economic and racial backgrounds. That said, Julie’s passion lies in working with children and teens.
