Ms. Julie McAllister, MA, LPC, NCC
Hi! I am the co-founder of EMDR Transformations Counseling and I find it truly rewarding to help people process through their traumatic experiences and transform into the best version of themselves. I bring an authentic, open and warm approach to therapy and I believe we all have the capacity to learn, grow and heal. Drawing from adaptive information processing (AIP) theory, I can help you work through emotions and transform your thought processes to allow you let go of behaviors that may have been helpful at one time, but no longer serve you. This can help you have more successful and fulfilling relationships with yourself and others. I live in Queen Creek, Arizona with my husband our 4 dogs.
Education & Experience
I'm a Certified EMDR Clinician and I use EMDR as my primary treatment modality. I have been a therapist for 12 years and I graduated with the highest honors (summa cum laude) from Northern Arizona University with a Master's degree in Community Counseling. I am licensed by the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners and I am a Nationally Certified Counselor. Having worked in the behavioral health field for the past 17 years, I have experience serving a variety of populations, but I have special interest in working with first responders and veterans. I also have specialty experience working with members of the LGBT community, as well as individuals newly diagnosed and living with HIV/AIDS. I generally work with clients aged 18 and above, but have been known to work with 16 and 17 year olds at times.
Professional & Volunteer Affiliations
I am member of the Arizona Trauma Recovery Network, a volunteer community of EMDR Professionals dedicated to preventing PTSD. Members are ready to provide an immediate front line response in the case of an emergency situation or disaster in Arizona.
