Licensed Professional Counselor


Julia Bourcier, M.S.

My name is Julia Bourcier and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters of Science in Counseling and a Certified Life Coach. I began my professional journey as a young adult working in various settings with people struggling to make better choices. As I worked with individuals from widely diverse backgrounds and walks of life, I began to appreciate the power of one hand reaching out. I became profoundly aware that most people are able to build a more fulfilling life, not because of good advice, but because another person was willing to walk with them, assist them in navigating unfamiliar territory, and be part of the process of discovering their potential.

While working with individuals to enhance their physical well-being I realized addressing the physical needs of an individual was inextricable from facilitating the internal growth of that person. As a counselor I believe our best success in life comes not from our list of commendable achievements, but rather from our growth as a whole person, a combination of mental and physical wellness. 


These experiences have deeply affected my work as a counselor so that I view any obstacle a person is facing as an opportunity to develop a rich story of navigating new paths. While all of us face painful and difficult experiences, I believe these provide an opportunity to connect, seek new ways of viewing ourselves, and discover unconditional acceptance of self and others. 


It is my goal to create an environment of unconditional acceptance where any person can grow without judgment. I work with children, adolescents, families, couples, and individuals as a part of their process to become their most authentic, resilient self. I am dedicated to being present while people address painful experiences and move toward healing through discovery of the internal strength each person possesses.
