Julia brings experience in the behavioral health field at multiple sites and levels of care. In addition to working in the school system, she has experience working at behavioral health hospitals at the residential, partial-hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care. She has extensive experience working with adolescents, emerging adults and their families.
