“I have been in and out of counseling since I was a teenager. I came to Anchored in Hope Counseling [a few] years ago when I was in a very dark place. I have had counseling in the past where the counselor listened to my problems and offered feedback but didn’t really provide me with the tools I needed to overcome my negative thinking patterns. Julie, at Anchored in Hope, is the only counselor to not only listen to my problems, but she has taught me how to be more mindful, to identify better coping mechanisms and implement them so that I can better manage my anxiety. As a direct result, I no longer get so overwhelmed that I fall back into depression and am so much happier. Anchored in Hope Counseling has changed my outlook on life and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
“I have had nothing but a positive experience with Anchored in Hope Counseling Services! I was hesitant to start counseling at first, but Kayla is very approachable and extremely helpful, making the process much easier. I’m glad I chose Anchored in Hope, and I highly recommend it!”
“Julie is the absolute best! I was very nervous for my first session, but it wasn’t long before I felt right at home. She creates such a welcoming and nonjudgmental environment that allows me to open up and learn new things about myself every session. I was never the type of person to open up, but Julies’ empathetic, caring, and compassionate approach makes it so easy. I leave each session feeling more confident, positive, and a better person. She has become a role model to me and I could never thank her enough for everything she’s done for me!”
“I realized Julie was a great fit for me very early on. Over many years and life changing events, she has provided me with numerous problem solving tools. She is very professional, understanding, and most importantly, helpful. I can’t thank her enough for giving me the tools to be the strong person I am today.”
“I’ve been going to Anchored in Hope for around 10 months now. I feel so comfortable with [Kayla] my therapist. She has truly been a lifesaver and helped me through some difficult times. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience.”
"I have been seeing Julie for around four years now. She has helped me through what I would say have been the worst times in my life! From depression to the loss of my husband due to COVID in 2020. Julie is a very compassionate therapist that listens and is willing to help you with whatever your needs are."
"I came to Anchored in Hope during one of the most difficult times of my life and Kayla has been nothing short of fantastic. She is so understanding and supportive and helped me not only to keep my anxiety under control but also to always see a path forward. The techniques she taught me have helped me tremendously to improve my mental health and I always left our sessions with a positive outlook and hope for a brighter future. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for effective counseling services from someone who truly cares."
"When my body was telling me to finally deal with past trauma and grief that I hadn't fully processed, Julie helped me navigate my emotions. She helped me realize what was unnecessary to hold onto, and with that and Christ's help, my fear and anxiety could no longer hold me back like it used to."
