Julie M. Smircic, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Portland
Are you ready to make a move? Personal growth is inevitable when we take responsibility for our next steps in healing and change. I specialize in working with adults who are in the midst of life transitions and the challenges they bring. Job changes, relationship shifts, losses, creative angst, burnout and stress are just a few examples of issues that bring clients to work with me. Hearing a fresh perspective about their concerns and experiencing being truly seen and heard keep them coming back. My job is to help you design a life as well as recover from a challenge.
Transitions are a time to harvest what we know and to develop the new talents that are seeking expression. If we can trust ourselves and mange the fear that transitions bring, we thrive. Having an experienced mentor to guide and support your process can be instrumental to your success.
I have been gathering personal growth training and tools for over 20 years. I love my work and enjoy providing guidance and sharing practical strategies with clients. I look forward to meeting you and helping you create your next steps.
