~ Julie Smith, founder of Behind our Behavior
Julie Smith, a licensed psychotherapist and master coach, sees a select number of clients from around the world both virtually, on location and in office to understand behavioral motivations, manage mental health needs and create change. To inquire about availability and rates, please contact our offices.
Julie Smith has a strength in bringing together community-based organizations and individuals to develop trauma-sensitive programming responsive to the diverse needs and interests of teens and the elderly and to address the matters that are affecting and are of vital importance to these populations.
Our virtual and live trainings and workshops help educators, mental health professionals, businesses, law enforcement and other caring professionals understand behavioral motivations and identify social-emotional red flags and risk factors to develop trauma-sensitive action plans that support a culture of acceptance and resiliency.
Developing a trauma-informed approach is essential to create caring, supportive environments which address behavioral concerns and mental health needs. Together, we can create and implement a custom risk reduction, public awareness and/or prevention program or curriculum to address these five key areas - self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible problem solving /decision-making skills – and create a trauma-sensitive culture that meets the needs of your school, organization or community.
We specialize in studying people, especially adolescents. With behavioral interpretation and analysis, Julie and her team analyze patterns, habits, and norms of individuals or groups to help understand, predict, and address behavior. This can be used to identify both individual and organization needs, such as mental and emotional health or concerns such as addictive behaviors, aggressive behavior reduction, and classroom or organizational structure. The findings are beneficial in developing prevention and intervention programs.
When a child, team or community is in crisis, you are also in crisis. We provide confidential care to support individuals and organizations when behavioral and mental health issues escalate and feel unmanageable and unsafe. Care may include counseling, intensive psychotherapy, therapeutic interventions, skills development, personal advocacy, and post-care planning. Our crisis response services also provide immediate trauma-informed support, compassion and care to individuals, providers, and other community members during a tragedy, disaster or crises.
