She helps adults with anxiety including social anxiety, panic, OCD, and generalized anxiety.  She also helps clients with depression.  She primarily uses CBT in her work with clients and works under the supervision of Dr. Tal Singer.

Julie speaks Arabic fluently and is very pleased to be able to assist clients who feel more comfortable having therapy in their native Arabic language.
