I suffer from extreme anxiety and until I began having session with Julia I thought the only way I could cope was with medications. However, now that I am working with Julia I am reaching levels of comfort that i have not experienced before. She truly works with you as an individual to find a combination of techniques tailored for you. it is hard to explain how different and better I feel after each session and how much hope it gives me.”
