Julie Long

Founder and Counsellor (MEd., CCC)

Is your anxiety and depression preventing you from living your life? Have you lost the sense of who you are and where you’re going? Is there a toxic relationship in your life sucking the energy out of you?

Sometimes we know exactly what we need to change but we feel stuck and can’t do it. But there is a way… Seeing a therapist enables you to feel safe, understood, and hopeful that you can move forward in your life.

How I can help.

Life happens and it isn’t always pleasant.

Our brain is supposed to compute those hurtful situations so we can protect ourselves the next time. Sometimes though our brain gets behind in its paperwork and the next thing you know, you’re acting in a way that doesn’t make sense for the situation you’re in. EMDR completes the processing of those old stuck memories so you can use current information to live your life – in the present.

My story.

Just like others, my life has been quite messy.

Adverse life events (traumas) have knocked me down and there have been times I could not get back up, without help. I remember seeing a therapist who helped me feel that there wasn’t something wrong with me… Something wrong happened to me. We used EMDR to help my body move through that trauma so that I could live in the present moment, not in the past. It was liberating! I would love the opportunity to help you do the same…

Life outside the office.

Mental Health advocacy is a passion of mine, in addition to learning how to live our best lives. I love walking my dog and enjoying the sunshine and trees. Running and hot yoga are my favourite hobbies! As well as reading a great book and laughing out loud with my husband, family and friends.
