Julie Jewels* Meek
Julie “Jewels” Meek is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and professional FlowArtist. She specializes in individual, parent-child, and group therapy for those who are struggling to be successful and feel fulfilled in their lives, many of whom suffer from anxiety, depression, AD/HD, autism spectrum disorder, executive functioning problems, social cognitive deficits, and histories with traumatic stress. She has presented locally, nationally, and internationally, and has had the honor of sharing self-regulation strategies in several schools in Idaho through her role as Lead Counselor at Lee Pesky Learning Center (LPLC). She is also a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional and has a special interest in helping the helper. She believes every individual’s unique path is valid and worthy and considers it an honor to be of service to every client.
In her private practice, Jewels teaches her clients how to master key self-regulation skills for managing life demands and difficult emotions. Her sessions help the client heal and make sense of what has happened in their pasts and relationship patterns so that they are free to live a life in alignment with their values and of true fulfillment.
Jewels offer a sliding scale for all services and bills insurance as an out-of-network provider. Clients are given the option of therapeutic movement and dance activities to engage the body in the transformation process, however this addition is never required. Jewels’s first priority is a collaborative, trust-based, and mutually respectful relationship with her clients, as well as an individualized therapeutic approach to best meet her clients’ needs. She possesses advanced knowledge in cognitive-behavioral therapies and FlowArts approaches, and her understanding of the neurological and relational underpinnings of emotional, cognitive, and behavioral functioning is extensive and research-based.
In her spare time, Jewels enjoys being with family, enjoying the outdoors, working in her garden, and the occasional night out dancing. 🙂
