JULLEON GARRISON, LSW
I’m Julleon (Ju-Lee-On), a Licensed Social Worker specializing in Clinical Mental Health from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Masters of Social Work program. Before Clinical Social Work, I worked in the nonprofit sector fighting against homelessness, internet/technology illiteracy, housing crisis, and poor educational options. During my clinical internship, I work with patients with addictions, ADHD, Adjustment Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, and other mental health disorders. I am experienced in treating individuals, children, couples, and families. I am familiar with various therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Supportive Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
Therapy is like any other relationship except its sole purpose is for the benefit and progression of the client. As a Social Worker, I place my client’s right to self-determination above clinical goals, ensure the respect and dignity of my client, deliver honest services, and work to address mental health concerns. With these primary tenants of our therapeutic relationship, I hope to create a comfortable, respectful, and honest environment to develop a space where clients are free of judgment and doubt, a space where we can work through the fear of someone knowing you and accepting you as you are.
