You are not alone.

Working through unproductive or harmful behaviors and patterns can be difficult and scary. You might feel like you've tried everything, but nothing has worked.

Taking the step to begin therapy is often overwhelming and full of uncertainty. It can lead to feeling exposed and vulnerable. You may even wonder if therapy will really help. ​Change, however, is possible. And I can help you make that change a reality. I'm here to help you work through these challenges in a safe and empathetic environment. My goal is to support you and provide you with the tools you need to make lasting changes in your life.

I believe that each person is unique and therefore I customize my approach to each individual's specific needs. I often integrate different therapeutic techniques and modalities in order to provide the best possible care for my clients.

I have a deep understanding of trauma and tailor my treatment through a client-focused lens. This involves uncovering and understanding any self-limiting or self-destructive behaviors you may be experiencing and working through – not around –loss and grief.

I will work with you to help you understand your unique experience and how it has impacted your life. We will then work together to build on your strengths and develop new skills to help you heal and thrive.

Hi, I'm Julie.

Over the decades, my life has been touched by many of the same challenges my clients face. I understand what it’s like to feel lost, scared, and stuck. To wonder if things will ever get better. I've struggled with infertility and experienced the heartbreak of divorce and having to let go of a 30-year marriage.  I have felt the isolation and self-doubt that comes with feeling that your life is being turned upside down; when you thought you had everything figured out and suddenly find yourself questioning everything you thought was true. ​

But I also know even in the darkest of times, there is always hope. I learned to value the blessings of adoption and birth. Through my own challenges, I learned the value of self-compassion and self-love. I found the courage to dig deep within myself and grow. I discovered that even though I couldn’t change the past, I could change how I related to it. And by making peace with my history, I was able to create a more joyful and fulfilling present.​

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, it is my honor and privilege to help others do the same.


Julie Crist, MAC, LMFT
In my practice, I work with adults, teens, and couples. I specialize in working with individuals who are experiencing or have experienced trauma, divorce, anxiety, depression, addiction, disordered eating, broken relationships, life transitions, and identity issues. All of these circumstances can be traumatic and lead to feeling overwhelmed, stuck, and hopeless. I understand that every individual processes and copes with trauma differently, and I will work with you to understand your unique experience regardless of where you are in your life's journey. ​I use a variety of theoretical approaches based on the client and presenting concerns. I utilize Attachment Based, ACT, CBT, DBT, EFT, Family Systems, Mindfulness Practices and Solution Focused therapies.

anxiety & Depression

You might need help navigating new stressors during this season of life. The way you manage stress, anxiety, and/or depression can have a deep effect on yourself and those around you. An expert can help you sharpen your ability to cope with the demands of work and other responsibilities so you can enjoy life every single day.


While physical changes accelerate and continue for decades, most of us are found feeling like we are losing control and even lost in our relationships and our purpose. We do not have to suffer and just go with the flow. There are so many options that are available to us to make these decades the best in our lives.


The relationship you have with your therapist is the biggest factor of successful therapy. I am invested in working with you to make choices that feel confident and align with who you want to be. I believe in getting real by prioritizing what actually matters, taking the steps to change, and creating different outcomes that you want to see in your life.
