Julie Mathewson LLC Member, MSW, LCSW, EMDR trained, Grief & Loss Certified

Julie started out her career working as a crisis worker in children and teen crisis centers. She has worked extensively in infant adoption. This focused on working with birth mothers and with adoptive families.

She was trained at the Grief Recovery Institute and uses that education often with her clients. She has helped many teens and adults discover how to find peace and move forward in their lives.

A few years of working with addiction and dual diagnosis was challenging and rewarding as some clients found success and others succumbed to their disease.

Julie has worked at Stillwater the last several years. She is a great team player and an asset to our well rounded staff. She currently works with teens and their families as they learn to use their core values to overcome mental health and addiction issues as well as change their thinking patterns through therapeutic interventions and psycho education. Julie is the leader of the Embark phase at Stillwater and helps with organizational responsibilities as well as meeting the therapeutic hours for the students in their initial months of the program.

She considers herself as a life-long learner as she continues to practice EMDR, trauma therapy, art therapy, and attend more than twice the required continuing education credits. Julie enjoys the outdoors, nature, camping, hiking in the mountains and spending time with family and friends. She also enjoys doing arts and crafts with her clients and on her own as a therapeutic activity.

"Trouble and challenge find us all, yet I have always had someone there with me to help me through it. It is my desire to be that someone for others."
