Julie Hickson LCSW-C Clinical Director

Julie Hickson has sensed Gods call to Christian Counseling as a means to utilize her God-given gifts to provide encouragement to those struggling with life's issues. 

Julie has a passion and desire to lead people to Gods grace to heal the broken places in the hearts and lives of hurting people.  Whether pain and confusion has been ongoing or a new crisis, Julie can provide genuine acceptance, insight and direction in the counseling process. 

Julie is a licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Maryland and has been practicing social work with children, adolescents, young adults and women's issues since 1989.  She received a BS degree in Social Work through Taylor University, a Christian Liberal Arts college and a Masters degree in Social Work from Rutgers University.  In 2001 Julie completed the Certificate Program in Child and Adolescent Treatment through the University of Maryland.  As a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors since 1991, Julie receives ongoing clinical training and resources for treating children, adolescents, and adults with a Christian emphasis.  Julie is recognized as a credential counselor with New Life Ministries.

It is her desire that when people enter into the journey of healing that they will gain a sense of acceptance and hope for the future as they discover Gods purposes for their lives.

Julie is originally from Northern New Jersey and has been residing in Maryland since 1995 with her husband John and their four children Karsten, Karlie, Kaira and Kaisa. Julie has especially enjoyed working with adolescents in youth ministry both in the church as well as the community with Young Life.
