About Julie A.M. Sherwood

Root Cause Therapy Practitioner ♥ Wellness Coach ♥ Usui Reiki Master Practitioner

Master Constellational (True Sidereal) Astrologist

Having worked in both the legal and medical fields for a combined total of more than 30 years, I saw many colleagues lose their sense of purpose and connection to their work. I was initially focused on helping primarily those colleagues, but since leaving corporate work, I have also discovered that just about everyone is lost and stressed by life transitions at some point.  Whether these transitions are by choice (retiring, a new marriage) or by unplanned circumstance (loss of a loved one, major health issues), many people cannot meet these challenges with any sense of ease or direction. I began this mission by becoming a certified wellness coach, with a main focus on helping my colleagues rediscover happiness and self-empowerment in life.

Julie Sherwood is a Certified Wellness Coach

First, I completed Levels 1 & 2 wellness coaching certifications with the Institute of Wellness Education, who set the National Standard in competencies and curriculum with evidence-based and solution-focused approaches in training wellness coaches. I continued with extensive training via The Solution Focused Universe, which teaches specific language skills oriented toward client-driven resolution. For a more detailed explanation of the solution-focused approach and how it helps clients, click here.

Beginning to see clients with some pretty extensive issues, along with the wellness coaching training I already have, I knew I needed to go further to deepen my understanding of how trauma and intense life events can be recognized, processed, and ultimately resolved. More recently, I completed the Trauma-Informed Certification for Coaches and as well as becoming certified as a Root Cause Therapy Practitioner through The Centre for Healing.  To learn more, see the Root Cause Therapy method page.

In conjunction with wellness coaching modalities, I include the more esoteric options of Constellational (True Sidereal) Astrology and Usui Reiki for clients to explore. ​I am certified as a Master Practitioner in Usui Reiki, a modality known to improve health and wellness by using energetic principles to restore the natural flow of relaxation and peace. Having balanced energy is crucial for an overall sense of wellness in mind, body, and spirit.

 I have studied under a number of astrologers and use the constellational (True Sidereal) approach to chart reading and analysis as a certified Master True Sidereal (Constellational) Astrologer. You can learn more about this method and how I use it on the Sidereal Astrology Readings Services page.

 For those of you who deeply desire to find and truly align with your personal life path by identifying what that is and then removing any limits that get in the way of it, I’ve combined the Root Cause Therapy method with Constellational Astrology for the Life Path Empowerment packages. To learn more about how I bring these together to help you to clear the roadblocks in your lives, see my page Life Path Empowerment.
