Julie McAllister, MA, LPC, NCC

Sonoran Sage Counseling, PLLC

Hello there!  I’m looking forward to meeting you.

As your therapist, my goal is to help you to draw from the strength and resources within to help you heal and grow. Empowering you to utilize your own insight and wisdom, I will work with you in a collaborative, supportive manner. Using an authentic and nonjudgmental approach, I will partner with you in the journey of healing and nourishing the spirit. I practice evidenced-based therapeutic techniques. Using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), I am able to conduct very successful therapy with clients with traumatic backgrounds. I have worked with families, teens, adults and seniors.  I also have extensive experience working in the LGBT community. I know that relationships can be difficult, however the most challenging relationship of all is the one that we have with our self. Throughout our work together you will discover your true self and the ability to have the relationships, family, and life that you desire.

I work with individuals ages 18 and up.

I am an Arizona board approved Clinical Supervisor.
