I am shocked by what some people have written about Dr. deJonge. I have been in therapy with her for several years. She has always been compassionate, understanding, and is an absolute professional. I would take my children to her, or send my best friend to her. For a therapist to tell you he/she has heard other complaints about Julia is very unprofessional. You can look up her licensing info online, and you will find there have been no substantiated complaints. I think some people are just angry because she made them face the truth. To say she thinks she is better than her clients or is snooty, is so untrue. People can be so cruel.

Pros: understanding, compassinate, really listens

Cons: none

.

Being a professional it is very difficult to evaluate your peers; especially when your peer, Julia deJonge did not know I was a fellow professional. So I apologize for the lack of disclosure. I did go in to see the Dr. for valid mental health reasons. The biggest issue I had was the Dr. always talking over me. She is a great talker if that is what you are looking for. If you are looking for someone to listen to you and allow you to speak this would not be my choice for you. I also felt as if she was judging me quite harshly and I'm not sure what the reason for that would be. In reading the other reviews on this Dr. it sounds as if my feelings were very accurate. I'm attempting to transition to a different Dr. who is willing to listen and let me finish my own sentences. Also I did not find her personal office very welcoming; but again that is my feeling.

Pros: close to the highway

Cons: not real easy to locate

WOW! There are alot of raw feelings in this site. I myself am not personally a client of Julia's but a contact that she knows well. It's wonderful to see people expressing their feelings; even negative ones. No one of us is perfect in God's eyes; therefore I hope you are filling these forms out from your heart and that it is constructive. Alot of you sound as if you feel "unserved" by Julia and there's alot of anger on this page as well. I hope each and every one of you were able to verbalize to her how you felt; but for some reason I feel like alot of you were scared or hesitant. If you don't trust your therapist after a few sessions then tell her and ask for a referral. It is hard to trust someone with all the pain and icky things. Just find a Psychologist that you can "fit" with or else your wasting the therapist and your time.

Pros: Julia gave you a chance

Cons: Sounds as if your personality clashed with hers

.

Somewhat snooty; yet seems intelligent. No help for me from this practice and would/would not recommend. Might do well if you are wealthy and in the right "circles".

Pros: Fairly easy to get in and out of parking lot.

Cons: Don't know her specialties

I'm glad my boys are not in therapy anymore with Dr. DeJonge. They reacted to her unlike they had to other therapists after their Daddy died. I wish their origional therapist could have stayed but she got married and moved. In the eyes of a child......I can't recommend this Dr.

Pros: Is a religious person

Cons: My boys cried when it was time to go see her

Very unprofessional. Was accused/abused by Julia. Kinda funny no other therapists I've had, paint the picture of me that she does. I have gotten "rave" reviews from my psychiatrist and therapist. She just up and dumped us which caused alot of chaos in my life and earned me another DSM diagnosis. She took me to court. The judge threw it out because he viewed it as harassment from a professional. He even gave me the numbers for the APA and other places that he stated needed to know about the harm she had done. I've got alot more therapy to do; just over this julia situation. My prayer is that if you are needing to seek therapy; then please do so. Just be really careful when choosing one. I have not and would not recommend Julia Dejonge to anyone. Please know also that you can set up interviews with a couple different therapists; whether in person or on the phone. Please be careful with who you trust your innermost self/selves with because it could get worse rather than better. And everyone deserves to Hope, Heal and Thrive.

Pros: location of office

Cons: will not help you figure out what you are feeling

Very complicated experience. I felt like a full fledged psycho after a couple sessions with her. I did not walk in with hardly any self esteem; and walked out with NO self esteem. I would recommend to look elsewhere because there are good psychologists out there. If you need therapy (which is why we see a pschologist) don't be afraid to check out a few, because you don't want to end up needing more therapy than you did when you started having sessions with her. I wish I could give out some names of some good ones but do not feel that would be professional.

Pros: She protested against President when he came to town

Cons: I feel she puts words in my mouth, and demands; not suggests

.

It seems quite a few feel Julia is not a good Ph.D. It makes the rest of us who provide services wonder if we are doing a good job. I hope she is being told so she may change things and not just being judged. I know one of Julia's former clients who is still struggling with the therapy she had. We just pray she will be able to trust her new therapist someday and continue to work with God to heal.

Pros: She's educated

Cons: What her clients feel is wrong

A while back my best friend told me to go see this Julia lady for therapy. My friend was seeing her also but we had to not let Julia know (I;m still not sure why). I am glad that you are saying you had a good experience; but I HAVE TO question your motive for saying this. I sat in Julia dejonge's therapy office for quite a few sessions. I should have listened to my gut when 20 minutes into our first session I was questioning if this Julia lady was really a therapist. I was severely tramatized over the few sessions I sat in this lady's office. I used to stand outside the door (the outside one) and get sick because I was so scared to go into Julia's office; but I was scared of losing my best friend by not going in Julia dejonges office. It was a horrible position to be in. So I put it in God's hands; because I was going downhill emotionally/mentally at breakneck speed. A few days later I terminated with Julia dejonge and that was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I was proud to have given the issue to God and actually listening for His answer. Anyhow right now I have a REAL PSYCHOLOGIST who is a great listener, but all we have been able to work on so far is the debriefing from being with Julia dejonge. I'm close to losing a friend over this but I have to listen and do what is best for me. My new Psychologist also told me that Julia has had complaints filed against her with different psychological associations and even did something legal to one of her clients who was forced to go to court, which can be traumatizing in and of itself. I guess the judge handled Julia dejonge and her legal team their butts and was ticked off that they wasted his time. This is as accurate as I can describe. It is very hard for me to write this but I believe God wants me to send out the message so hopefully no others will have to go through what so many already have with julia dejonge. I do want you to know that I am not passing judgement; just telling what God wants me to.

Pros: She taught me to listen to myself

Cons: I have lost all trust for authority figures

.

Julia is an excellent clinician; compassionate, knowledgeable, and extremely perceptive. I don't know who the other reviewers are talking about, but that is not the same person I know and trust. I would recommend Julia De Jonge highly, and in fact have done so many times to people about whom I care very deeply.

Pros: compassionate; perceptive; excellent clinical skills

Cons: schedule changes

she definatly thinks she is better than her clients and lets you know that. Do Not take children to see her; that would be a bad choice on your part. As for adults (such as myself) she thinks in only black and white. It's her way; or the highway. Does not give you attention you deserve during sessions and can't follow the conversation. She has no empathy, personality, doesn't care what you are saying (as long as your paying), and I believe she is in the wrong occupation. Do yourself a favor.....don't put yourself through Julia's unprofessionalism. You are worth more than that. There are alot of good psychologists around here but she is not one of them. If I can save one person from having to feel what I felt from Julia B. DeJonge; then it was worth writing this.
