Many years ago, a horrific tragedy struck her family when her nephew drowned. Julie’s brother was unable to effectively cope with the loss of his son. After trying therapy and multiple prescription medications, he turned to street drugs for his anxiety, depression, and PTSD. The drugs took their toll, and 5 years later he died of a hemorrhagic stroke. She truly believes that if Ketamine Therapy had been available, he would be alive today. Julie is passionate about helping prevent others in the community from traveling that road. Together you will work toward accomplishing your goals.
