Julie Roy, LLMSW, CAADC (She/Her)


I believe that everyone needs some extra support at times. My goal as a therapist is to work collaboratively with clients to help them find their way through life’s challenges. 


I focus on encouraging the client as the expert on their own life. As an EMDR trained therapist and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor,  I draw from a trauma-informed, eclectic, strengths-based, approach that might include elements of EMDR (EYE Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy informed skills practice (DBT), trauma-informed mindfulness and yoga/ Y12sr, Polyvagal Theory (PVT), ACT (acceptance and commitment Therapy, sand-play therapy, and more based on the latest research to assist clients in finding the result they desire. Please see my blog post for more information regarding EMDR.


I am committed to utilizing a compassionate, hopeful, supportive, and best practice informed approach to support clients as they work through stress, trauma, or personal challenges.


I am humbled by the stories that are shared with me and strive to create an empathic and safe experience for clients to find healing.
