I have over twenty years experience in counseling adolescents, individuals, and families. I began my career as a counselor in the inpatient mental health unit at Methodist Medical Center and worked in this capacity for six years, until transitioning to Associates in Psychiatry specializing in outpatient mental health. In 2003, I opened Glen Manor Counseling with Julie Ray. I have extensive experience with corporate employee assistance programs and enjoy helping companies work together as a team. I am an accomplished speaker on a wide variety of mental health and training topics.

As an elder at Northwoods Community Church, I am involved in spiritual leadership and facilitating church decisions. Interestingly, I am also a farmer who operates the family farm, which includes the corn, soy bean, and cattle business. I have been married for over twenty years and have three children.

I went into private practice in 2004 when I joined Glen Manor Counseling.

I work with clients (children, adolescents and adults) from a strength-based approach, in order to assist them in learning to reduce stress, resolve conflicts, improve relationships and increase healthy coping skills. In addition to providing counseling for individuals and families, I am also an experienced marriage counselor.

My wife and I have been married for 20-plus years and are in the midst of raising our three children. I enjoy spending time in the outdoors with my family, keeping up with the activities of our children and being involved in my church. Additionally, I enjoy helping to care for the several animals that inhabit our small farm.

One of the reasons I chose counseling as a career was my genuine love of people, as well as the great satisfaction I feel from walking with them through some of life's difficulties.

My areas of experience include but are not limited to:
  • Stress management
  • Family conflict
  • Grief and loss
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Marital conflict
  • ADD / ADHD
  • Divorce
  • Anger management
  • Parenting skills
  • Self-esteem
Clients express appreciation for my “warm and friendly personality" as well as my efforts to make them feel valued throughout the counseling process.

Julie Ray, LCSW

Co-Owner of Glen Manor Counseling


I graduated with honors in 1991 with a Masters Degree in Social Work from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. I started my career at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center as the psychiatric social worker on the mental health unit.

I spent three years in that role providing individual, group, and family counseling. In 1994 I developed the Partial Hospitalization Program at OSF and coordinated a multi-disciplinary team in providing individual and group therapy to adults experiencing mood, anxiety, personality and substance abuse disorders.

I joined Associates in Psychiatry at Methodist Medical Center in 1999 in order to broaden my practice to include adolescents and their families in addition to adults. In 2003 Jeff and I decided to open our own practice and Glen Manor Counseling celebrated its tenth year last September.

I am from a large family and have two adult daughters. I have been active in various ministries in my church, and currently volunteer with several local organizations. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, volunteering, gardening, traveling, and playing the piano. I never met a book I didn’t like.

I work with adolescents 13 – 18 and adults who are experiencing difficulties with:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety – Panic Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Self-Injury
  • Trauma and Abuse
  • Grief and Loss
  • Parent – Child conflict
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Marital Conflict
  • Stress Management
  • Self-Esteem
My clients appreciate that I am a genuine and compassionate therapist who truly cares about their concerns and well being. I believe that people are capable of change when they are “ready” and I do all I can to start where they are and see them through to where they want to be. My goal is to be a partner in the journey of identifying concerns and helping to develop coping skills or changed behaviors to improve their quality of life.
