Julie Fann
M.Ed., LPCA, NCC

Julie believes that the collaborative counseling relationship facilitates healing. She creates a comfortable, safe environment in which individuals, couples, and families learn how to get unstuck, accept and love themselves, communicate effectively, and achieve holistic wellness. Julie uses an integrative approach to treat the whole person—body, mind, spirit, and social being—and access the client’s strengths. As therapy progresses, clients gain awareness, begin to experience peace even amidst suffering, and practice connecting with others and/or their spirituality in life-giving ways. She primarily uses the techniques of internal family systems therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion-focused therapy, trauma-resiliency model, Gottman’s research-based relationship therapy, and spiritually-integrated psychotherapy.  However, her approach is feedback informed, so she adapts to meet clients’ goals, needs, and preferences.

Julie specializes in treating adults and couples experiencing anxiety, grief, and/or relationship issues. She has completed Gottman level 1 and level 2 training, and she loves using that approach to help both heterosexual and same-sex couples improve their relationship, end it amicably, or co-parent during separation or after divorce. She also welcomes clients—including adolescents—with other experiences such as depression, trauma, women’s issues, low self-esteem, disordered sleep, self-harming behaviors, anger issues, and disordered eating. She offers spiritually-integrated psychotherapy; she is a Christian, and she counsels people of all faiths as well as people who do not self-identify as spiritual or religious.

Julie strives to practice with multicultural competence and to understand how clients’ cultural backgrounds and personal identities—including their racial identity, cultural identity, gender identity, sexual identity, and/or spiritual/religious identity—inform their experiences, values, and perspectives. She seeks to promote social justice, advocate for her clients, and help her clients understand that distress may be a rational response to oppressive social systems and norms.

Julie is Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate (LPCA) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). She earned a Bachelor of Arts from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX and a Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC.

He will tailor his approach to the specific need of each client.

Olatunde loves to think and connect deeply, creating life changing bonds of mind and spirit. He likes to explore the most intimate connections possible between people--particularly for individuals and couples. He believes that the deepest issue, need, and goal people have is to connect intimately and completely with at least one person. Olatunde believes people want to fully know themselves and be fully known by at least one person. He believes therapy may be the first experience of this for some; but that it shouldn't be the only or last experience. Olatunde helps clients find their truest identity and intimacy--first in, then beyond therapy.

The most helpful specialty Olatunde has is therapeutic empathy: the ability to listen actively and skillfully. But he believes listening alone does not create the life changing bond or life skill needed beyond therapy. After creating and modeling a therapeutic bond, he becomes a guide for clients in the skills of authenticity and intimacy, in becoming fully themselves and fully connected.
