Juliann has been practicing since 1996. During that time, she has earned a reputation among her clients for being empathetic, compassionate, loyal, and trustworthy.

She specializes in treating trauma, addiction, PTSD, depression, and anxiety in adults of all ages, including military and veterans.

She earned a master’s degree in social work from San Diego State University, and a Ph.D. in health promotion and healthcare administration from the University of Utah.

Juliann has a multi-generational military background. She spent ten years as a behavioral health provider in the Utah Army National Guard, where she earned several Army service awards. She’s currently in the Army Reserves.

As she pursued her lifelong dream of earning a doctorate degree, Juliann was sent on an Army mission, missing critical time in her program.
