Julia Allain, MHC - I
Mental Health Counselor - Intern
I am a driven and compassionate counselor, with a passion for empowering others in becoming their best selves. Currently pursuing a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Northwestern University, I have a B.A. in psychology from Providence College and a M.A. in sports psychology from McGill University. Previously, I have applied my training as a high school psychology teacher and as a mental skills coach, working with various high performing athletes, including Division I athletes and USA Hockey’s National Team Development program. In 2023 I published my first book Everything I Got: 30 Lessons on What You Give, What You Get, and How You Grow Through Sports.
Why You Should Work With Me
Building on my experience with individuals in high pressure situations, I use a strengths based approach to help clients navigate the stress, anxiety, and adversity that naturally exists throughout our lives. With a flexible approach that adapts to the needs of the client, my goal is to support each individual on their own unique journey. Whether it be increasing self-awareness, cognitive restructuring, developing mindfulness skills, shifting perspectives, or committing to action steps, I provide a welcoming and supportive space that allows clients to explore their own needs, values, and goals. Through our supportive relationship, built on authenticity and trust, I help individuals celebrate their strengths and build upon their weaknesses so they can move forward in their lives with confidence.
Things I Enjoy
I enjoy reading books and watching sports. In addition, I love going to the beach at any time of year for a walk with my family and our dogs.
