Certified Cannabis Advisor
Founder and Managing Partner
Julia Appleby is a board certified (NCC-National Certified Counselor) Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with Supervision designation (LPCC-S) and TeleBehavioral Health practitioner (TBHI). She is a member of the American Counseling Association, the Ohio Counseling Association, and the Ohio Mental Health Counselors Association. Julia earned her Masters Degree from the University of Akron and Walsh University. Since 1992, she has been providing clinical counseling services to individuals, children and adolescents, couples, families, and groups. She has practiced in a variety of settings including community mental health, schools, hospitals, and her private practice. Julia holds over 25 years of clinical experience in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders in mood, behavior, personality, and addiction.
As a behavioral health clinician, she has had the privilege of helping individuals to find meaning, restore balance, and to achieve a greater sense of well-being. In her opinion, this is best accomplished by considering the whole person; their unique set of circumstances including the physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect their health. Clearly, one size does not fit all. Rather, a personalized approach that makes use of all available and appropriate therapies seems to achieve the greatest results. As a proponent of the accessibility of medical cannabis, Julia recognizes that it may not be for everyone, yet it has been successful for so many. When used as an alternative or as a complement to conventional medicine, the health benefits of medical cannabis are astounding. Empowering individuals to manage their own health promotes a sense of control which is key to one’s overall wellness and quality of life. Therefore, having the option of medical cannabis treatment makes good health sense. Julia is grateful that she has been guided to facilitate this endeavor.
