First Responders Trauma Retreat
Shadowland Foundation's Wolves & Wellness Presents
Julie Ann Goode LMFT
Julie Ann Goode, LMFT, PsyD has been a psychotherapist since 2011. She began her healthcare journey in an emergency room in 1984 while pursuing an AA in music in Long Beach, CA and continued hospital work for over 20 years. Being interested in psychology and philosophy from a young age, Julie Ann longed to pursue a career in psychology since her teens. She began her 14-year academic journey at Argosy University in 2008 and finished her Doctorate in Applied Psychology in June 2022 at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles. Practicum and internship concentrations included individual, couples, family and group work with children and adults. Work with adults included dual diagnoses (drug and mental health issues) rehabilitation, domestic violence, law offenders, rape and incest survivors, and serious mental disorders such as schizoaffective, antisocial personality, dissociative personality, and borderline. Her work with children included oppositional defiance, bullying, parental addiction and abuse, and foster/adoption families.
Returning to ER work in Orange County in 2011, Julie Ann formed a new appreciation for first responder teamwork alongside medical and psychological staff and law enforcement and fire department personnel. A pre-doctoral internship in 2021 near Hoag Hospital presented an opportunity to counsel first responders who experienced burnout, anxiety, depression, alcohol addiction, and unique pandemic-related symptoms. She was the clinical supervisor for the intensive outpatient program (IOP) at First Responders First in Los Angeles County in 2022 and continues first responder individual, couples and family therapy in Orange County. She utilizes CBT, narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, trauma-informed techniques, and EMDR to assist in relieving stress and symptoms quickly and efficiently. Julie Ann is dedicated to healing and educating first responders whether they continue to work or are retiring.
