Dr. Atkinson’s Endorsement:
Julie has an uncanny ability to “think outside the box.”
Couples often remark that she’s able to see things about their relationship that they were blind to, and she helps them find pathways out of gridlocked conflicts that had previously eluded them.
Julie pays close attention to each partner’s disappointments, hopes, and dreams, and helps each partner understand and value what is truly important to the other.
Couples leave therapy feeling a renewed sense of support from each other and confidence that they can face any obstacle by working as a team.
