Julie is a wonderful therapist and human being! I have known her for almost 20 years; since we first met in grad school, while working at the YWCA of New Britain Sexual Assault Crisis Service. Julie is genuine, compassionate, non-judgmental and kind…the most important qualities to have in a therapist. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to begin counseling!
I am a recovering alcoholic, co-dependent, husband, father, homeowner and gainfully employed professional. I went to Julie Tedesco with an unhappy life - bad marriage, unsatisfying job, and negative outlook on life. Julie’s work with me has changed my life. I still have the same wife, same job, same everything, but I have totally different and improved outlook on life. I use thirteen (13) different concepts, habits and exercises daily that Julie has suggested over time. I give Julie the highest grade and recommendation.
My name is Karen and I came to Julie as a severely devastated and broken woman due to the blindsided betrayal of my husband’s cheating with a much younger woman. I didn’t know where to turn or what to do for myself; I truly felt I was going to have a nervous breakdown. The moment I walked into her door, I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be. The calming beach atmosphere of her office with the rushing water of the Farmington River outside her office window added to the relaxed and tranquil atmosphere I felt immediately. Then came my introduction to Julie behind those closed doors. She immediately made me feel so comfortable to just be me and express myself openly without feeling judged. I instantly built a rapport with her and a genuine immediate connection. She is not only a good listener but truly hears what is being said. To describe Julie in a few more words - she is compassionate, patient, respectful and an an expert in her field. I remember in the beginning of my counseling sessions with Julie just crying, crying and crying and I remember my last session with Julie hugging her goodbye crying, but this time my tears were tears of joy that I was back on the road to recovery and tears of sadness having to say goodbye to this wonderful person who truly saved me.
I have always loved quotes and images. I find them to be inspiring and they help me make sense of the world- frequently nodding my head ah, now I get it. I think they help others, too, which is why I'm always sharing them with friends and family and people at work. This book evolved because I like to help people, and I thought that by sharing some of my favorite quotes, maybe I could help change a thought, an outlook or make someone else's life a bit easier.
