Julie Tiemeier, PsyD - Staff psychologist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center

Julie Tiemeier received her Doctor of Psychology from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio with a track focus of children and adolescents. During her clinical psychology internship at UC Davis Children's Hospital, CAARE Center in Sacramento, California, she learned Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and Parent-Child Interaction therapy (PCIT), evidence-based treatments for childhood trauma. She also completed child welfare evaluations and trauma-specific didactics. Dr. Tiemeier then completed her fellowship at Rowan University's CARES Institute in Stratford, New Jersey where she received an in-depth training of Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with one of its creators, Dr. Esther Deblinger, and learned another evidence-based treatment called Combined Parent-Child Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CPC-CBT), a treatment for children and their parents who have a history of using physical discipline. During her fellowship, she also assisted in training groups in TF-CBT, including Japanese clinicians after the 2011 tsunami, and completed sexual abuse and foster care evaluations.

Julie is now a staff psychologist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in the division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology. While housed in the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children, a child advocacy center, Dr. Tiemeier participates in child abuse team meetings and provides evidence-based treatments for families and children ages 2-18 years with a trauma history. She treats symptoms of PTSD, depression, behavior disorders, and anxiety. Dr. Tiemeier also recently completed training in Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI), a short-term evidence-based treatment. She serves on the Advisory Board for a local after-school program for children of recovering addicts in Cincinnati as well.
