"Suffering and struggles are a part of this life. Ancient Christian wisdom teaches us that making meaning of your pain is the foundation for finding healing and health. I walk with my clients to find the strength and courage to face their hardships and find their path to peace, joy, and hope by sorting out and untangling the complexity of your thoughts and feelings.
Soul care, christian formation, and professional counseling are woven together from years of training and experience integrating Christianity with the psychotherapy model called Internal Family Systems (IFS) Click here to watch a short video. Every struggle begins in ones' thought-life, working with me will help you be more intentional with your inner dialogue, resulting in the desired changes toward peacefulness. The inter-relatedness of spirit, mind, and body is foundational to the process of addressing every part of who you are to bring you to the next steps of your journey of experiencing the peace that passes understanding."
Julie Honeycutt, MMFT, NCC, LMHC, LPC is National Board Certified Counselor licensed in Michigan, Massachusetts, and Tennessee. I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2004 from the Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. Additional post-graduate studies have been through the American Association for Pastoral Counselors (AAPC) and the IFS Institute, formerly known as the Center for Self Leadership. I've been active in the IFS community since 2004, specializing as a certified Level 3 Internal Family Systems therapist, offering workshops at the annual conferences, and serving three years as the Christian spokesperson on the Diversity and Inclusion committee with the IFS Institute.
Offering Christian Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy as a certified IFS therapist, my training is unique in that I had the privilege of attending level 1 & 2 solely with other like-minded Christians which afforded me to wrestle with where the IFS model of therapy does not align with the Judeo-Christian faith worldview.

Clients with existential struggles will find that the IFS model specifically helps with connecting what they "know" about God and living that knowledge out. Many people describe this experience as a 'head-heart disconnect.' I offer my clients a unique experience of self-discovery by helping you unburden fears that keep you stuck in unhealthy thinking patterns and decision making. Through this process, clients experience long-lasting healing as you learn how to live in the freedom of authenticity of Spirit-led life.
