Julie Stewart, LMCHA, MS, CN
I treat people who want holistic care, focusing on exploring the intersection of mind and body. What is your bodies story? How does that impact your mental health? Your physical health? I can help you have a better relationship with food, body, and exercise. I help those with disordered eating and those that cope with chronic health and pain issues. Nourish yourself by giving time and attention to you. In our work together, we will focus on your narrative to unravel the connections and help you understand why and how you function. When we discover how we function, we can unstick the dysfunction.
I help you gain a better relationship with yourself, utilizing intuitive eating and health at every size principals. I am uniquely trained in both therapy and nutrition and hold a certified nutrition license (CN) in addition to my training as a mental health counselor. My approach is collaborative and centered on your needs.
I practice from an attachment theory lens, and utilize narrative therapy, feminism theory, and existential theories to support our work together. I use other techniques and skills as needed, such as mindfulness or trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy.
