Professional Women's Self Care Panel
FEATURING JULIA LORENZ-OLSEN, ANGIE JONES AND STEPHANIE ALLEN
MODERATED BY HALLIE GRAVES
Julia is a Swiss/Texan who was practically raised on the stage. Now, she adores using those talents to empower and inspire others to take charge of their own financial destiny through her company The Art of Finance. Spending several years in the mortgage industry gave her number-crunching confidence and a unique insight into investing. She’s also a self-professed foodie, budget-wizard, yogi, a vintage-clothing collector and has owned several of her own successful businesses. Her excitement for teaching people, especially other young women, about financial matters is matched only by her passion for figuring out who this Jesus-dude was, 60’s costume dramas and reading sci-fi.

Originally from Chicago, I received my Bachelors in Social Work from Baylor University and Masters in Social Work from the University of Washington. Over the last 11 years I have worked in community mental health, public schools, anti-human trafficking, and private practice. Throughout my experiences I have gained insight and passion for working with multi-cultural communities with diverse needs.
My approach to therapy is strengths-based and client-led, emphasizing one’s self-determination and strengths to help create healthy resolutions to various issues. I look through an ecological lens, taking into account one’s current developmental context and the overlapping systems of self, relationships, community, and societal factors. I draw techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
When I’m not doing therapy, you can find me running on Town Lake, enjoying a Camp Gladiator boot camp, yoga class, or trying out a new restaurant. I am drawn to storytelling, strong women, designing beautiful spaces, spending time with family and friends, and traveling with my husband. There’s nothing like taking in the beauty of a new city on foot, preferably with an almond chai latte in hand!
