Juliana Wilhelm

Founder and President of Capacity Leadership Center and Cardia Counseling Center

Juliana Wilhelm is the Founder and Director of Cardia Counseling Center, where she has been providing effective counseling and coaching for more than 20 years. She is uniquely equipped to help leaders strengthen both their personal and professional lives.

Through the thousands of face-to-face hours of coaching and counseling with high capacity leaders in both the public and private sector, she has first-hand knowledge of the type of impact created when leaders are equipped with emotional intelligence skills and strengthened in their interpersonal competencies.

To further support this growth in leaders, Juliana created a program specifically for executives and supervisors in Senior Living communities. The program is focused on building zealous ambassadors who lead the charge for a healthier workplace culture and increased retention of the best talent in the industry.

When she’s not facilitating leadership programs or working with clients 1:1, Juliana teaches at the Townsend Institute for Leadership and Counseling and serves as an adjunct instructor in graduate school programs. She has been the featured speaker at conferences for academic and professional audiences both nationally and internationally.

Juliana holds a Bachelor’s degree from University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a Master’s degree from Wheaton College. She is a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) in the state of Illinois.
