Life is a huge adventure and I work with people so they can make the best out of theirs. I believe every person is unique and deserving of the best that life has to offer. Therefore, my approach to counseling is to tailor to my client’s background and needs.

I enjoy working with young people who are struggling to form their adult identity. I work with clients who have noticed that being an adult doesn’t quite match up to what their dreams are, so they want to make effective changes to reach their full potential.

As we move through life, we tend to collect things along the way across the diversity of the human experience. We will focus on incorporating and strengthening culturally relevant skills into your everyday life on an individual level in a way that works specifically for you.

I am a compassionate and passionate clinician who works with people, especially women, to help them find freedom, independence, and empowerment through healing their relationship with themselves.

Julia Noelle Hall

I like to think of the journey to healing as a path back to one’s self. It’s incredibly easy to lose bits and pieces of ourselves when trying to recalibrate or just trying to function every day waking up to the current state of the world.

I am passionately driven to make a positive impact in people's lives, and approach each person as a unique individual to help them tailor their strengths in the best way possible. I am tuned to your unique needs.

I bring my life experiences and tools I have picked up from school, community work, and  emergency services to my practice. I am by no means an expert; I am continuously learning new ways to improve.
