Julia believes that each individual is unique, each family has a different dynamic, and listening and understanding each situation is essential to doing the best work possible.

The three core principles of person-centered therapy are also Julia’s principles: empathy, non-judgemental and authenticity. Julia completed a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) with a minor in counselling and is currently finishing her Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology) (Honours). Julia is committed to continuing her professional development and she always intends to grow as a professional and human being.

Julia brings maturity, balance and experience to her practice. As a Mother of two great teenage boys, she also has had many professionals help her to learn how best to raise her children, the most challenging task she has ever done and surely the most rewarding one!

Julia and her husband lived on a sailing boat for many years and sailed over many places in the world until calling Redcliffe home where she lives with her family. Julia is an active community member of Redcliffe, engaged in various volunteering work during her 16 years living on the Peninsula.

Julia’s past work experience and education further supplement her skills and abilities as a Mental Health Worker and ongoing education/training to become a Psychologist. This includes assisting students with reading, writing and fine motor skills development. Julia actively supported neurodivergent young people with or without mental health issues (i.e anxiety). She has also been in the marketing, organisational development and logistics business, adding further unique skills and expertise.

During her free time Julia loves being in nature with her family and friends. Her favourite activities are camping, sailing, cycling her electric bike, bushwalking, yoga and having coffee with her friends under the big tree in Scarborough.

Julia is excited to be a member of the Newport Physio and Health team and looks forward to meeting her clients.
