What to Expect



Individual counseling is a process through which you work one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.



Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel a full range of emotions and experiences.


Children & Youth

Therapy can be a safe space for kids/teens to process thoughts and emotions.



Relationship counseling is a type of talk therapy that lets both parties in a relationship talk about their problems and feelings in a safe and private environment.

My Approach

Hello, I'm Julie Klecker, CEO and President of Artizo Ministries. I always endeavor to create a safe space for those seeking counseling. This means I like to give clients an opportunity to get to know me and feel at ease during sessions. I give clients my full attention and active listening skills, focusing on your unique perspectives and experiences without making assumptions or judgements.  Once we discuss together and determine what goals you would like to achieve in therapy, we choose the best approach. 

About Me

Before I became a counselor, I attended Penn State and worked in the steel mills of Western PA on summer breaks.  When my parents divorced, I dropped out of school and joined the military.  I served for four years in the US Navy as a Chinese Linguist assigned to the National Security Agency. After that, I programmed computers for John Hopkins Applied Physics Lab.  My work history also includes providing administrative assistance in differing marketplaces and educational institutions. While completing ministry school in Charlotte, NC, I was a singles and evangelism pastor for a short time.
