    Julie Simmons MA, LCMHC, LCAS, CCS

    I am a mother, a veteran, a christian, a counselor and a survivor. I have a passion for my work and I pride myself in caring about the interest of my clients and their concerns. I know that sometimes life hurdles prevent us from living the life we so richly deserve. From time to time we may face difficulties in our life, our relationships or finding a peace within ourselves. I utilize an individualized, integrative and eclectic approach in therapy to assist individuals in reaching their self-determined goals.

    A genuine care for outcome combined with therapeutic concepts, a non-judgmental attitude and unconditional positive regard serve to enhance the therapeutic team between client and therapist. Don’t sit in silence or isolation there is help & there is hope. Whether your struggle is depression, trauma, relationships, addiction or other mental health concerns,.

    My Mission:

    My mission is to assist individuals and families with restoring, creating and enjoying the rich life they deserve, while maintaining their right to dignity, self-respect and self-determination. Remember “No Hill is too Steep to Climb When There is Kindness in our Path” “some wise person”

    I offer weekend & evening hours as well as groups. My goal is servicing the community. I think every person should have access regardless of circumstances, finances or preconceived barriers. Let’s work together to achieve your desired outcomes in therapy.
