Christina takes great pride in providing safe and exceptional anesthesia to her patients. Her experience has ranged from a small community hospital and surgeries centers to office-based anesthesia and trauma centers in Maine, New Hampshire and Idaho.

Julie Thompson, LPC
Julie Thompson is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Occupational Therapist. In addition, she is certified as a yoga teacher and meditation guide — trained by renowned mindfulness researchers Jon Kabat Zinn, Kristin Neff and Chris Germer.
Julie has spent over a decade working on university and college campuses as a mental health provider, strongly drawing from a Rogerian Person-Centered approach to help individuals realize their fullest potential. She believes that the most significant element she brings to her clients through counseling is the ability to be a witness to their experience while normalizing what it means to be a human being. Life invites suffering (this is a part of the human condition); however, there is an opportunity to not only suffer less, but to engage life in a way that allows a stronger sense of abundance, wellbeing and overall peace of mind.
Julie’s initial career as an Occupational Therapist introduced her to a variety of interventions that she used to support individuals in their journeys through healing to recovery. This included working in a VA hospital in Minnesota, supporting veterans in their efforts to navigate the recovery of their physical and mental wellbeing. Julie was trained in Neuro Developmental Treatment (NDT) which expanded her understanding of working with individuals who had experienced brain trauma. Her interest in neuropsychology evolved as she continued her education, completing a MS in Mental Health Counseling in 2007.
While she continued to cultivate a deeper understanding of neuropsychology and factors contributing to overall wellbeing, she came across contemplative practices and began her own personal journey with meditation, yoga and other mindful practices.
Research demonstrating the powerful positive impact traditional mindful practices have on neuroplasticity and a person’s ability to rewire their own brain towards enhanced mental wellbeing drives Julies passion. She guides individuals to break out of fear driven patterns and overwhelming physiological reactions — which when not addressed often result in chronic depression, anxiety and a range of addictive behaviors. In fact, meditation (15 minutes a day) creates changes in the brain in as little as 8 weeks!
Julie has completed several intensive trainings including: Mindful Based Stress Reduction, Mindful Based Exposure Therapy and certification in Mindful Self-Compassion.
Raised with parents struggling with depression, anxiety and addiction, Julie recognized early on the wide-reaching, negative impacts on individuals, families, and communities.
Julie’s experience includes working in an inpatient residential recovery center in Alaska where individuals were suffering the impact of severe trauma complicated by chronic addictive behaviors. While unsure of how a mindful-based sobriety curriculum might be received, Julie quickly realized how many indigenous cultures are steeped in mindful traditions — practices that originated over 2000 years ago. Becoming more intimately connected to these communities while living in Alaska, Julie became interested in traditional plant-based medicine interventions, the resurgence of research related to plant-based substances, and other hallucinogenic and dissociative medicines. Experiences produced by such medications create potential for experiential shifts and insights — enhancing an individual’s ability to more effectively address mental health conditions such as chronic depression, anxiety, trauma and addiction.
Julie is continuously expanding her large foundational education. It is her priority to provide informed guidance and a safe space to explore effective ways to process ketamine experiences. Individuals are encouraged to engage the ketamine experience more fully by integrating powerful insights often described by many as “life changing” in the most positive and essential way.
