Julie has worked with over 1,000 families touched by autism world-wide since 1998. Studying everything from Behavior Modification to Relationship based modalities, Julie felt stifled by being contained in a box, while representing various modalities she was trained and certified in through the years. Having to represent a modality meant fitting a child into a program rather than creating a program around a child. This mind-shift inspired the creation of Natural Play Therapy - where no two programs look exactly alike, yet they are all based on respect for the child, creating emotional trust, and a natural desire to learn. Julie is passionate about her work, connecting with families near and far.
