  • Julie's Counseling Service

    I have always enjoyed working with children, teenagers and adults. While I was at Old Dominion University, I worked in the financial aid office for four years. There, I received my degree in counseling with a minor in psychology. Part of my program required me to teach a counseling class. I enjoyed it immensely. I began working with troubled teenagers when I worked at The Pines, a residential treatment center located in Portsmouth, Virginia. In that RTC, I worked primarily with teenage males. I taught these teenagers about their diagnoses and about potential coping skills. There, I was promoted twice. My last promotion was to the position of assistant director. When I moved up to Northern Virginia, I worked at Graydon Manor in Leesburg. There I worked with teenage females, teaching them about themselves and their diagnoses. I also worked at Global Health Nurse Training Services. There, I was an adjunct professor of psychology. I taught general psychology and developmental psychology to nursing students. I also worked in the student services department where I was an academic advisor as well as a mental health counselor. I was just recently employed at Youth For Tomorrow where I worked as a residential counselor in a group home for teenage females. Although most of my job centers on a mental health component, there is also a teaching aspect. I supplied the girls with knowledge of their specific problems and issues. I also worked with them to come up with strategies for dealing with these problems, and I taught them social skills and life skills. It takes a special kind of person to work with young people. Actually, it takes a special kind of person to work in a teaching capacity with any age. The difference between me and other counselors/teachers is that I genuinely enjoy working with people of any age. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Julie R. Blevins

Imtasik Family Counseling Services Inc. connects with people and helps them find healing and happiness. They provide one-on-one and face-to-face interactions, as well as provide counseling through online channels. Below, the business owner shares why he enjoys doing his work.

What do you love about your job?

I absolutely love helping people who face life challenges and putting their life back in order again. I truly feel like I can and do make a difference. Every day, people seek me out because life has presented them with challenges that oftentimes seem overwhelming and stressful. I provide a perspective that is encouraging, empowering, and hopeful.

Who inspired you to start your own business?

I was in a situation similar to what most people find themselves in. I was dealing with childhood trauma, and I didn't realize how it affected my life. I began this ministry out of my own healing because when one has been helped, the next logical step is to reach out and help others.
