JULIE SWEENEY is a client-centered, solution-focused counsellor who specializes in supporting women in finding freedom for themselves. Julie offers openness, honesty, and a willingness to be part of your journey in a way best suited to your needs.
Through a HAES-based lens aimed at helping clients feel less alone in their struggles with body image, Julie offers women the opportunity to develop new skills and ways of thinking. Outside of her specialty with body image and self-esteem, she also works with clients experiencing anxiety, focusing on self-care and changing negative coping habits.

Julie enjoys helping people become aware, gain insight, and move into action to create lasting change. You would be a fit for her work if you’re interested in the change process and taking action toward making space for new energy in your life.
Today we talked to Julie about her personal story, how she came to HAES, how she approaches this with her clients. We also talked about compassion fatigue and how to manage it.

Prior to opening her practice, she worked at Kennesaw State University where she was a founding member of their eating disorder treatment team and provided outpatient nutrition therapy for students including NCAA and club level athletes. She is currently a member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH), Eating Disorder Registered Dietitians and Professionals (EDRDPRO) and the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians (IFEDD).
After our conversation Bethany wanted to add the following:
I did not mention during our conversations some of the amazing humans (some are health providers and some are not) who have put forth the emotional labor so that I could learn and do my own work. Could you mention this and provide a list in the show notes? They deserve the credit! I also think this list might be a helpful resource for any listeners who are looking to do this work as well.
