I loved the energy work! Julie uncovered in one session what therapy would have taken six months to do!

You have really illuminated where I am now and where I want to go by helping me find my own words to describe my journey and desires.

My session with Julie was amazingly galvanizing. I’ve been stuck in a rut for a long time now, and working with Julie really gave me the shove I needed to get going. Thank you!

Julie has that rare capacity to guide me on my healing journey into the center of my Soul, to release what imprisons me, and to excavate the gold of my greatest potential. I recommend Julie and her work without reservation.
