Highlands Ranch therapist, Julie Swim, LCSW, is a Licensed Therapist with Westside Behavioral Care. She loves providing therapy for adults, adolescents, and families. She also specializes in proving therapy for alcohol abuse and addiction.
In Julie’s Swim’s words about her therapy practice in Highlands Ranch:
I believe that each person is unique and capable of change. I believe that people do the best they can when facing challenging circumstances. Therapy simply bolsters their ability to deal with life.
The experience of a life crisis is not fun. At the same time, gaining self-awareness is life changing. I know how difficult it can be to navigate life’s stressors and change long-standing patterns of behavior.
My style is nurturing, directive and fun. I work together with you as a team getting to the core of the problem. I focus on creating a supportive environment that promotes healing and facilitates insight. I have more than 25 years of experience as a therapist for individuals, adolescents, adults and families, helping them cope with a variety of issues. I have also worked in a variety of settings such as inpatient psychiatric treatment, residential facilities and outpatient mental health facilities.
My areas of clinical specialty and interest include anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, anger issues, low self-esteem, unproductive communication patterns, family and relationship conflict, and parenting concerns. My undergraduate degree specialized in recreation and sports with a minor in counseling. I have a Master’s degree in Social Work. My approach focuses on identifying relational patterns that cause distress, strengthening one’s core sense of self, and developing the necessary tools for you to maintain a healthy and happy life. We will work together to create meaningful change together.
Note: as a Highlands Ranch therapist, my office is convenient to Golden, Lakewood, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Denver, and several other locations in and around the south and southwest Denver area.
