JULIE SWEENEY is a client-centered, solution-focused counsellor who specializes in supporting women in finding freedom for themselves.
Registered with the OCSWSSW as a social service worker and the ACCT as an Master Therapeutic Counsellor, Julie offers openness, honesty, and a willingness to be part of your journey in a way best suited to your needs.
Through a HAES-based lens aimed at helping clients feel less alone in their struggles with body image, Julie offers women the opportunity to develop new skills and ways of thinking. Outside of her specialty with body image and self-esteem, she also
works with clients experiencing anxiety, focusing on self-care and changing negative coping habits. Julie works with clients one-on-one, in workshops, and in groups – both in person and online.
Julie enjoys helping people become aware, gain insight, and move into action to create lasting change. You would be a fit for her work if you’re interested in the change process and taking action toward making space for new energy in your life.
“I have been there,” Julie explains. “My personal story is what led me to this work, and I look forward to sharing when appropriate.” She works with a client-first approach and meets each individual where they are at. “I believe that we are all capable of change if that is what we want for our lives.”
Further, Julie is passionate about public speaking. As such, she is available for special events and speaking engagements that focus on the following topics: disordered eating, body image, self-esteem, self-care, change processes, and compassion fatigue. In the past, she’s spoken at Luv Your Selfie (twice!) and the Harm Reduction Task Force event, among others.
Julie is located in Frankford, Ontario, and available by appointment in person and online!
