Meet Julie Hattershire | Virtual therapist in Ohio
Hi, I’m Julie Hattershire, your dedicated and licensed virtual therapist in Ohio. I’m a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW-S) offering both online and in-person therapy for clients based in Ohio.
Based on decades of professional experience, I approach therapy with a nuanced understanding of life’s complexities and challenges. I’m here to offer my empathy, expertise, and support in an approach to therapy that prioritizes your unique needs.
My expertise extends to a broad range of challenges, from anxiety and depression to couples counseling to major life transitions and more. I’ve had the privilege of working with a diverse client base over decades, which helps me address your needs with a nuanced, compassionate, and person-centered approach.
In online therapy sessions, we work together to establish a sense of safety, compassion, and non-judgment. In this space, you have a chance to explore your thoughts, feelings, and concerns openly and with support. I incorporate tools and techniques from several evidence-based therapeutic modalities to offer you a customized roadmap for therapy. Whether you want help dealing with daily stressors, delving into your emotions, or cultivating positive relationships, I’m here to empower you.
In my practice, I consider your whole being. I don’t view you as a set of symptoms but instead as a whole being in mind, body, and spirit. I’ve seen how compassionately-led, trauma-informed therapy can transform lives, and I want to help you achieve that transformation. With the right therapy, you will develop a deeper understanding of yourself and come to sense your own path forward. This deeper awareness is yours – I serve as a guide.
I believe that a holistic approach is the key to true health. We will consider and explore your issues, concerns, and symptoms, but we’ll also cultivate inner strength and resilience to help you keep growing even after therapy.
I understand that choosing a therapist is a deeply personal decision. Take some time to read about my services and assess whether my approach resonates with you. I also know that many people are unclear about the nature of online therapy, so it’s normal to feel hesitant. Let’s take a look at how online therapy can help you.
My online therapy services
As a therapist based in Ohio, I offer both virtual and in-person therapy services. Whether you choose to go online or take sessions in person, know that my approach is based on evidence, experience, and deep compassion. Online counseling and therapy is a great way to meet your needs in the comfort of your own home, especially if transport and location are an obstacle to you getting the help you need. My online therapy services include:
Also known as one-to-one therapy, individual therapy focuses on you and your needs. I help adults dealing with stress and trauma, anxiety, depression, identity concerns, self-esteem issues, and more. If you’re committed to your personal growth and fostering healthy, positive interpersonal relationships, individual therapy can make a big difference. Learn more about my approach to individual therapy here.
Whether you’re dealing with complex relationship challenges, seeking to strengthen your bond, or going through major life transitions that are affecting your relationship, couples therapy can help. If you’re interested in couples therapy and my approach, you can learn more here.
Counseling for Parents
My therapy and counseling for parents in the state of Ohio creates a supportive, compassionate space for you to explore concerns and challenges with zero judgment. Parents’ therapy helps you explore family challenges, improve family communication, and foster a healthy, harmonious home dynamic.

Counseling for Men
I help men in search of a female therapist who can support men’s issues, including stress, relationships, and personal development. My men’s therapy service helps you identify the obstacles in the way of your well-being and cultivate the self-awareness, understanding, and emotional resilience necessary to thrive.

Still unsure about going virtual? Let’s take a look at the many benefits of online therapy:
- Convenience: Virtual therapy lets you connect with a professional therapist from the comfort of your home with no transportation costs.

- Advanced mental health care: Telehealth services such as therapy video sessions are an emerging area of mental health care and are backed by strong research. Services provided and supported by evidence include cognitive behavioral therapy, treatment of eating disorders, management of mood disorders/personality disorders, learning tools for stress management, and goal-setting (to name a few!)

FAQs about online counseling
Is Online Therapy HIPAA Compliant?
Yes, online therapy with me is HIPAA-compliant. Confidentiality is crucial to the therapeutic process. My online therapy services strictly follow guidelines set by HIPAA, so you can rest assured knowing that your personal information and topics of discussion are kept completely private.
Are Virtual Therapy Sessions Worth It?
Yes. Some clients prefer in-person counseling over virtual, but it’s a matter of preference. I’ve witnessed clients experience profound shifts and transformations in online sessions in a way that proves how virtual therapy can be just as effective as in-person sessions.
It’s up to you, but I encourage you to give virtual sessions a try before taking a stance. It’s convenient, flexible, confidential, and adaptable to your needs. Remember that the therapeutic relationship is key to successful therapy. Whether we talk online or in person, I’m dedicated to ensuring that sessions are more than a worthwhile investment.
How Do I Choose a Virtual Therapist?
When it comes to choosing online therapists, consider the therapist’s areas of expertise and approach to therapy. Consider also the rapport you feel in conversation with them.
I offer a free phone consultation to help you make a more informed decision about therapy. This no-obligation, confidential, and free consultation is an opportunity for us to connect, ask each other questions, and assess how you feel about moving forward with therapy. If you decide that you’d rather try a few other therapists, that’s ok! I encourage you to follow your heart and trust yourself.
Is Online Therapy Covered by Insurance?
Will your insurance cover therapy? Or will you self-pay? Paying for therapy is a real concern for many clients. While insurance providers understand the importance of accessible mental health care, many vary in what they cover – most will only reimburse treatment costs for diagnosed mental illnesses. I’m happy to help you explore your insurance coverage and figure out how we can move forward with sessions.
