Julianna (or Jules) comes from a background of facilitating transformation in the outdoors. She came to the world of mental health through the circuitous path of being a river guide, mountain person, and lover of the land. As a youngster in Southern Oregon, Julianna learned to listen to the voices of nature as powerful guides toward self-transformation. After college, she channeled this passion into nearly a decade in the world of multi-day river guiding. Desiring more depth, she pursued a graduate degree in counseling and achieved an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Transpersonal Wilderness Therapy from Naropa University.
In addition to her experience in the field of mental health, Julianna holds a B.A. in Dramaturgy from Emerson College. In her free time, Jules can be found running rivers, sliding down mountains, and spending time outside with her family and her pup.
