Hi! I’m Julian,
I’m a Career Coach here at A Quiet Place Counseling, as well as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. I enjoy helping people find jobs they love so they do not have to work a day in their life.
Possessing a strong desire to help people, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Science with a Concentration in Addictions, as well as my Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling with a Concentration in Vocational Development from Alabama State University. One of my biggest joys in life is helping people reach their goals. This unique profession of career coaching has given me the opportunity to support people through a time of uncertainty about their future. I love hearing the words of “OMG, I got into the program!” and “I got the job!” These are priceless moments that I love sharing with clients.
I have experience working as a Career Counselor, Independent Job Developer for the U.S. Social Security Administration, and Consultant for Graduate School Programs. Whether I am helping students choose majors or jobs, or helping working professionals find their ideal career path, the goal of helping people reach their desired lifestyle remains the same. I wrote a textbook that is available at college campuses entitled Finding Lifestyles through Self Exploration to help individuals navigate the career development process.
I provide Career Coaching services to help individuals manage the anxiety, self–esteem, and stress that can be a result of the career development process. Through a tailor-made career development plan, we can reach your goals together! Past clients that I have worked with include students who have gained admission into a vast range of graduate programs including, but not limited to, doctorate programs in Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy and Master’s programs in Cybersecurity and Global Supply Chain Management & Logistics, among others. Past clients that I have also worked with include people who have obtained jobs at Amazon, Boeing, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to name a few. I look forward to helping you reach your career goals that will enable you to live the life of your dreams!
My favorite place to be is the beach listening to the waves crash upon the shore. I also enjoy traveling with friends to different cities and watching Major League Baseball games. To relax, I am always looking for new shows to binge watch on Netflix.

WHO? Men ages 18-25
WHAT? Emerging adulthood is full of change, uncertainty, and identity exploration. For many, all of this happening at once can lead to stress about the future, difficulty making decisions, and self-confidence issues, particularly as they relate to education and career. Oftentimes, men feel obligated to be strong and capable, which can lead to an overwhelming sense of pressure to succeed. We created this career coaching group for young men who may have professional goals in mind, but are wanting to build empowerment to confidently pursue their goals. Over the span of 8 weeks, we will:
1) Learn strategies for setting meaningful goals that will positively impact daily decisions.
2) Develop skills for building self-efficacy, emotional regulation, and proactive stress management to enhance performance.
3) Build knowledge and tangible professional skills to maximize career success.
