Juli Slattery

President & Co-Founder

Dr. Juli Slattery is the president and co-founder of Authentic Intimacy as well as a widely known clinical psychologist, author, and broadcast media professional. Juli has a weekly podcast called Java with Juli and has written over ten books on marriage, relationships, and sexuality. Juli’s commitment to biblical principles, relatable style, and quick wit have made her a highly sought-after speaker. She currently sits on the board of trustees for Moody Bible Institute.


Juli is passionate about two words that are rarely put together- sexual discipleship. Juli challenges the church to have more than a “talk” or retreat teaching sexual purity. Instead, she equips leaders, pastors, and families to understand sexuality as not simply something to avoid, but a great and holy gift to be treasured, celebrated, reclaimed. Through every message, Juli teaches that every sexual choice is also a spiritual choice. 


Juli and her husband Mike have been married for over 20 years and are raising their three boys in Colorado Springs, where Juli can be found playing in the mountains and trying to manage her addiction to soy lattes.
