An internationally recognized speaker, and published author, Julie Christiansen brings over 15 years experience in group and individual counseling, to your boardroom. Branded as “Oprah for the Office” and “The Anger Lady” by her clients, Julie educates and entertains audiences throughout Canada, the United States, and the Caribbean. While she has been compared to the likes of Brian Tracy and Jack Canfield, Julie has an energetic, humorous, and insightful style that is all her own.
The youngest of three children, Julie was born in Jamaica but immigrated with her family to Canada at the age of 6 to escape political unrest in her home country. Having grown up against the backdrop of familial aggression, poverty, and financial struggle Julie is no stranger to hardship. Early in her life, she committed her future to finding and sharing real solutions to stress and anger.
After 15 years of working the front lines as a counselor, Julie successfully merged her previous career with her passion for helping people to create radical, positive, lasting change in their lives. She developed the Anger Solutions™ Program in 1994 and translated this exceptional program into a self-help book in 2003. In 2010 she released When the Last Straw Falls: 30 Ways to Keep Stress from Breaking Your Back, full of practical stress-busting tools set against intimate glimpses into her personal life experiences that shaped her passion for stress and anger resolution. In 2013, she published two new books, Bullying is Not a Game: A Parents’ Survival Guide, and Anger Solutions by the Book: Biblical Principles for Resolving Anger.
