Global Shores Life Coaching and Counseling services focus on creating a transformative vision of how you want your life to be and helps you get there.
Julia Loren offers profound insights and compassionate counseling techniques gained over 20 years of counseling individuals, couples and families around the world. She is a sought after retreat speaker who has facilitated retreats around the world.
She accepts a select number of clients in her practice and seeks to practice the work-life balance she preaches. So when not counseling or writing books, Julia and her canine co-therapist Koa, are often seen hiking in the mountains, attempting to fly fish (frustrating sport but more calming than golf), boating and other water sports.
She has specific expertise in women’s spiritual and career (work/life) issues; anxiety and depression; adoption issues; individual and family military and ex-pat stress; acute stress due to natural disasters and war; and religious transitions, trauma and abuse.
Julia has a Masters in Marriage & Family Counseling (Seattle Pacific University). She is a licensed professional mental health counselor in Florida and Washington State and National Board certified. She also offers life coaching, personal and group retreats, and beach/trail walk and talk sessions. Her approach is very holistic and involves helping you bring into balance your cognitive, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual aspects of self to live a more intentional life.
