Julia Overlin was always one to ask people how they were doing and actually wait for an answer rather than brush them off. As an adult she was her friends’ “couch psychologist” listening to their problems.
“I’ve always been an ear to my friends,” she said.
After a career in acting where Overlin reached people through the roles she played, she found it natural to go into psychotherapy. “I wanted to reach people and normalize humanity,” she said. Overlin now reaches people by working with them one on one helping them through issues they may be going through.
“A lot of people tell me they’re crazy. I tell them ‘you’re human,’ ” she explained.
