Description

I am passionate about personal development and empowerment. I can help if you have a concern about: depression, anxiety disorders, stress management, grief (after divorce, death, or immigration), personal development, goals, low motivation, eating disorders, low self-esteem, relationship issues, and so forth. My knowledge combined with my personal and leadership skills, helps people challenge to reach a renewed sense of purpose and achievement.

Julie Christiansen Counselling & Psychotherapy - Spa for the Soul

Summary

As your therapist we will encourage you to determine your own "answers" through the work done in our therapeutic partnership. We will never do for you what you can do for yourself. Our style is psycho-educational  and holds to the philosophy that if you catch a man a fish, he will eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he will eat for life.

If you'd  like to take a "test drive" and find out if our therapeutic approach is right for you, we offer a complimentary 30 minute consultation.
