Counselor, LMHC, QS, Psychotherapy

Julie Lillis provides a safe and trusting environment where clients have the opportunity to work through life issues, develop strategies for success, and manage symptoms of a variety of diagnoses. Julie Lillis has experience working with clients that suffer from anxiety disorders, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar, oppositional defiant disorder, ADD/ADHD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, postpartum depression, low self esteem, and difficulty managing life stressors. She serves individuals, families, and couples. She provides group therapy and weekend workshops for intensive treatment of marital issues and low self esteem. She has helped many families work through transitional periods such as divorce, blended families, bringing baby home, postpartum issues, maintaining sobriety, adolescent changes, loss, and grief.

She uses a variety of research based techniques such as mindfulness training, Gottman relationship tools, prolonged exposure, and thought stopping. Julie uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy along with other treatment modalities to assist clients in identifying patterns of limited thinking. Once identified, these patterns are explored through thought mapping. Healthy patterns are designed by replacing negative thoughts, challenging distorted core beliefs, and realigning the client with their authentic self.

Julie’s therapeutic approach is direct and solution focused. She provides support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. She integrates complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, she works with individuals, couples, and families to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

Julie often describes herself as a personal trainer for the mind. Her approach is uncomplicated but requires hard work by both therapist and client. Her motto is simple: Change your thoughts, change your life. Julie empowers her clients to to engage in deep self reflection and challenge the unhealthy choices they make on a daily basis that exacerbate their symptoms and prevent them from experiencing joy. She helps clients take control of their mental health and guides them through the process of making a lasting lifestyle change. Psychotherapy can be for anyone who needs assistance.
