More Recommendations from Parents

You are wise and wonderful. I did not realize that your required phone time, after his sessions would be so profound. I knew he needed good therapy, we have been around the block looking for it, but I did not realize how much my participation was necessary. My family has grown so much and have healed completely. Sure, things still happen, that’s life, but how we handle it….that’s Julia!

It was the week my son could not attend because he was sick that started my awareness. She did not charge for the last minute cancellation – she gets kids and their sudden onsets, and beyond that – she kept our parent phone call, included in the appointment fee, so she did it at no charge. This kind of caring for our kids and generosity is rare. She models for us such an open heart, she’s the kind of person I want children to be around. She speaks to my heart, which has allowed me to open up and deeply trust her which has allowed for tremendous growth for me and my entire family.
