About

My name is Julie and I use she/her/hers pronouns. I am primarily of French Canadian ancestry and have had the privilege of growing up in the Greater Tiohtià:ke/Montréal Area, which is located on the traditional territory of the Kanien:keha'ka Nation. Since 2017, I have been a visitor on the unceded and traditional territories of lək̓ʷəŋən peoples to pursue my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology here at the University of Victoria.

I am a social introvert and love to spend time at home with my loved ones either reading, watching movies and TV shows, or following hockey and soccer. I also consider myself a foodie and enjoy discovering new cuisines, recipes, and restaurants.

Counselling approach

In past practica, I provided diagnostic assessments to children, teens, and young adults and worked with individuals who struggle with anxiety, OCD, substance use, disordered eating, academic stress, life transitions, and/or identity exploration. I also have experience in supporting young adults who have endured social injustice traumas, including heterosexism, transphobia, and fatphobia.

My approach to counselling is collaborative, flexible, and integrative. I like to draw from various orientations (CBT, DBT, mindfulness, humanism) in order to help students develop the tools and understanding necessary for them to better overcome their current and future challenges. I am a member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community and I am committed to working towards providing an anti-oppressive, affirmative, and empowering space to all students.
