working  with  julie

julie simonson, lcsw



Hello and welcome!  As a licensed clinical social worker, I provide insight-oriented psychotherapy to adult individuals, couples, and families. My style is warm and empathetic, yet I will gently encourage you to examine things about yourself and your past that may be getting in the way of having a more fulfilling, happier life. My approach to working together is both collaborative and relational.  I work at a pace that feels comfortable for you.  My practice is eclectic and adaptable to your unique needs. I work from a combination of perspectives: psychodynamic, humanistic, and strengths-based. I specialize in grief & loss and trauma-informed care. I find that starting from a place of curiosity helps to strengthen the bond between client and clinician.  Sessions are either in person or virtual via HIPAA-compliant Zoom.
