When your child or teen is in crisis, it means you are in crisis. Julie provides confidential crisis care to support adolescents and their families when behavioral and mental health issues escalate and feel unmanageable and unsafe. Support care and crisis care include counseling, intensive psychotherapy, therapeutic interventions, skills development, personal advocacy, post-care planning. Crisis response is designed to help schools and communities respond efficiently and effectively to the emotional needs of adolescents during a crisis.
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 change 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 both prevention and intervention programs for adolescents.
Developing social-emotional skills can lead to a decrease in depression, anxiety, and aggression among students, increase resiliency, higher academic achievement, and an improved ability for all to function in schools and community. Together, we can create and implement a custom 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 culture that meets the needs of educators, adolescents, and parents.
Julie’s strengths are in bringing together community-based organizations working with families and teens to develop programming in schools and in community settings that are responsive to the diverse needs and interests teens. As a think tank facilitator, Julie will assemble key people including community providers and leaders, parents and adolescents to address the matters that are affecting and are of vital importance to adolescents.
To engage with adolescents and their families, you must better understand their needs, fears, hopes and desires. This knowledge helps you understand what drives their connection with your school culture or business brand. Julie understands how the adolescent market thinks, and she is able to ask the right questions to help you see the world the way adolescents do. Additionally, Julie is able to provide media-consultancy to ensure the veracity of YA programming.
