Our Team

Julie Watson, LMFT

Julie’s love for stories began in early childhood with her grandfather weaving tales of his adventures and a chance encounter at a supermarket that left an indelible mark. Her passion for stories led her to immerse herself in the art and science of storytelling to connect humanity. She ‌believes‌ ‌every‌ ‌interaction‌ ‌is‌ ‌an‌ ‌opportunity‌ ‌to‌ ‌rise‌ ‌‌ ‌and‌ ‌treat‌ ‌one‌ ‌another‌ ‌with‌ ‌dignity,‌ ‌care‌ ‌, and‌ ‌compassion. ‌This‌ ‌belief‌ prompted her ‌to explore storytelling as a way to understand ourselves and one another.

Today, Julie continues immersing herself in stories as a vital means of connecting and creating social change. She regularly hosts conversation and story pop-ups to facilitate understanding, connection, and resilience in communities. Additionally, she leads workshops that invite participants to share their stories through prose, collaborative artwork, and literary pieces. 

Julie’s research focuses on the role of storytelling in defining and revealing socio-emotional learning and mental health literacy. She is completing her Ph.D. in Media Psychology and also holds a Master of Human Service in Social Gerontology, a Bachelor of Business Administration, and post-graduate certifications in Marriage and Family Therapy.  

 Her work has reached both the public and private sectors working in education, healthcare, law enforcement, media, and more. Regardless of the individual, organization, or industry, Julie’s blend of inspiration and education in her keynotes mean that audiences leave feeling excited and equipped to finally put their stories to work tangibly.
