Julie Mahoney, LPC-A

Licensed Professional Counselor Associate

Is your child/adolescent acting out? Is their behavior leaving you stressed and feeling lost?

I am passionate about working with children and the belief “All behavior has a purpose” – Alfred Alder. We will work together to understand where their behavior is stemming from, and how we can move forward to instill lasting change in their behavior and emotional health and well-being.

Has your child/adolescent suffered from a traumatic event? Are you unsure of how to help them?

It can be extremely painful to watch your child suffer and feel helpless in the process. I am certified in Trauma-Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and will serve as a guide for your child’s therapeutic journey. Together, we will help your child to overcome, and get back to a place of peace and happiness.

Do you feel that the relationship you have with your child/adolescent is damaged? Are you looking to repair the relationship and not sure where to begin?

A child’s secure relationship with their caregiver is the most powerful tool towards relational healing and developmental repair. Working together, we will facilitate a prosperous relationship between you and your child that will strengthen your bond and lead to less conflict overall.

I’m a non-judgmental, compassionate professional equipped with experience working with young children, adolescents, and their families.
