Julie has a private practice in the DFW/Weatherford, Texas area. She has had a full time practice at Wings of Hope in Denver and Colorado Springs, CO, as well as Houston, Abilene, San Antonio, and now DFW/Weatherford, Texas.
Although she is currently practicing in the DFW, TX area, she has many clients who fly-in from all over to DFW for 2-8 day intensives for couples or individuals.
Julie helped introduce a large Houston church (over 30, 000 members) to their first sexual brokenness ministry, facilitating groups for sexual addiction and spouses of sex addicts.
Julie has spoken to engaged and newlywed groups and has several years of experience as a certified as a Prepare Enrich counselor.
The newscaster interviews the Gynecologist on the medical effects of abortion and interviews Julie regarding the psychological effects of abortion. Julie is also featured on international television in a Focus on the Family spot on Post Abortion Syndrome.
In addition, she has been involved with LifeHouse Ministries, a Christ-centered sanctuary for those touched by an unplanned pregnancy. She has done groups on PAS (Post Abortion Syndrome) for those who suffer from negative psychological symptoms due to prior abortion.
Julie has co-hosted a Colorado Springs radio show with topics on sexual brokenness and the Christian community. You can find her testimony on podcast via iTunes® (iTunes software is required).
Julie started with a practicum working at the Texas Prison Psychiatric Facility, where she did individual counseling and group counseling for sex offenders. She believes this has dramatically enhanced her current private practice work with sexual addiction clients, as she has seen the heartbreaking end result if this addiction goes untreated. Seeing the devastation of this population in prison increased her zeal to see healing in those entrapped by an addiction where they can lose everything they have, including their freedom.
As people get to know Julie personally, and little by little, hear her stories, many ask her if there is anything she has not done. Julie’s experiences, career, and non-career have all helped her connect with clients from all walks. From growing up a PK (preacher’s kid) to living overseas, flying, scuba diving, teaching Precepts bible studies, working as a pharmaceutical sales rep, school teacher, school counselor, teaching college, skiing, tennis, golf, piano, working herself through college as a hairstylist... God has not wasted one thing.
"Amongst all those times, the good and the bad, God knew the purpose of the tapestry He was weaving in my life. The most significant times in all of these, however, have been those times of brokenness. For had that alabaster box remained unbroken, the inward Holy Spirit could never have come forth (Mark 14:3 talks of the alabaster vial of perfume).
Although brokenness is a path sprinkled with blood from our wounds, it is the way of blessing, fragrance, and fruitfulness. I have learned that every bit of it has been filtered through the hands of a loving heavenly Father."
