“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are
challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor Frankl
Do you feel stuck, stalled, and overwhelmed? Do you feel shame, grief, or isolation? You might feel debilitating worry, have chronic sadness, or even struggle to get out of bed every day. You probably feel lost, unsteady, and lonely. Perhaps you don’t know why you feel so empty and dissatisfied, but nothing you try seems to produce long-term changes. Or, maybe you are aware of a particular issue causing you pain, such as an unfulfilling job or relationship, and carry deep self-doubt or shame. This discomfort is the part of you that is longing for something different. But another part feels unsure and uncomfortable with change. You’re ready for something different in life.
Maybe it’s the courage to change jobs, go back to school or uncover hidden shame from the past. Perhaps you want to leave a painful relationship or get out of an addiction cycle. Maybe, you want to be able to get out of bed in the morning, take a shower and feel hopeful about the day for the first time in months. I get it; it’s hard to make changes, and life can be complicated and overwhelming at times. Let me help you. I offer a warm, compassionate approach while holding space as you uncover areas of shame, grief, loss, and life’s disappointments. Reach out. Take that risk. I’d love to partner with you as you take the next steps in your journey to change.
Hello! My name is Julie Scroggs, and I am the founder of this Practice. One of my greatest missions in life is to help others overcome shame and accept themselves as valued individuals. I am a warm, compassionate therapist who will see the strengths in you when you cannot. I offer a friendly, non-judgmental approach while holding space as you uncover areas of shame, grief, loss, and life’s disappointments. Many have described me as “grounding, nurturing, and safe.”
I bring a comprehensive set of skills that I believe are valuable to my clients. I strive to be in tune with the needs of the LGBTQIA+ community and am anti-racist. I am rooted in and through the attachment lens while extensively trained in trauma therapy through
interpersonal experiential therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) modalities.
When I am not working, my people are essential to me. They include (but are not limited to) my family, including my partner, two young-adult children, my siblings, and my four (yes, you read that correctly) golden retrievers. In addition, I love to spend time outside with family and friends, hiking, finding fun and local food spots, exploring the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, and traveling!
A little bit more about me: In 2018, I earned a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University in Asheville, North Carolina. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist in North Carolina. I work with individuals who struggle with mental health, identity, and addiction issues and have been in the mental health/addiction field for over a decade.
I am a Clinical Supervisor Intern (CSI) with the North Carolina Addictions Specialist Professional Practice Board (NCASPPB).
