Julie De Llanos, has dedicated years helping people from different countries and background overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. She has invested hundreds of hours studying psychology, philosophy and human behavior.
Julie is a Certified Strategic intervention Coach and an NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) certified practitioner.
At a young age, she volunteered in her local church and neighborhood. Born and raised in Argentina, she came to visit Miami in 2007 and fell in love with the city. Ever since then, she has called this city her home. She has a passion for life and for helping others, which comes from her own struggles in dealing with the death of her mother at a young age. Seeking to understand herself, identity and how that fit in her with the loss of her mother, she was placed on a path where she interacted with therapists and life coaches. She personally experienced sitting on the “shrink’s chair” and being asked tough questions which forced her to look inward. She was determined to help others find a more effective and quicker way of understanding themselves and being able to move forward in the most positive way possible.
Julie’s diverse set of interests and experiences has led her to a career that she absolutely loves. Life is ever changing and Julie moves with the times. She continues to immerse herself in the literature and updates in the life-coaching arena. Her goal is to give her clients a well-rounded experience with education but also understanding.
She brings to each session her natural enthusiasm, warmth and so that each client can receive the maximum benefit and leave feeling refreshed and empowered.
When I was 8 my mother passed away from cancer. At that time, I remember my father taking me to see a psychologist and it helped me tremendously. When I was 12, and later at 18, I began therapy again to help me close a chapter of my childhood and to overcome some panic attacks. I have to say that it helped me a lot but it took years of therapy and I remember getting so frustrated because it was a never ending process. By the time I was 21, I was in search of something and didn’t know what (which I learned later on that if I don’t know where I am going I’ll never know when I get there).
How Coaching Helped Me
I went back to a therapist, but on my first session, it was very clear that I had closed a chapter of my childhood and that I needed help with something else. I needed help reaching goals and finding out what I was put in this world for. My therapist at the time tried her best to help me but she kept going back to my past and this was clearly not working, I wanted to focus on the present and the future, not the past. I later found a psychologist that used NLP (Neuro- linguistic programming) and coaching techniques and I have to say: Thank God!!
I accomplished everything in such a short period of time. I remember joking around saying you are going to loose money here if you help everyone so fast. She laughed and said; well it’s true, but I get the satisfaction of helping you. Her response was priceless because that showed me that: yes! Therapy was useful to heal wounds but if I wanted change, I had to take action, focus on the present and build the future I dreamt of. Coaching provided me with a set of tools to overcome my obstacles and get things done.
