In 2003, Julie co-founded Hinsdale Therapy Group as the culmination of a career in the social services field. Her clients benefit from her over 20 years of experience serving people across the life spectrum and with the entire range of life’s problems.
Julie specializes in helping adults and couples overcome anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, and difficulty managing life transitions, losses, or traumas.
Prior to HTG, Julie worked as a senior therapist for a community mental health center, as a case manager for a foster care agency, and as a counselor and house manager for various group homes (e.g., at a group home for at-risk, adolescent girls and a group home for adults with severe psychiatric disabilities). She has supervised other counselors as well as students working on their master’s degrees and license. Julie also spent time volunteering as a victim’s advocate for a sexual assault crisis center.
Julie holds a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana. Beginning with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Julie has dedicated her career to helping clients live more productive, healthy, and joy-filled lives. She is a member of the National Association of Social Workers.
When not at the office, Julie treasures her family and close friends, spending time outdoors, and sharing laughter with others as much as possible.
