Hi, I'm Julianne Passen, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor
Painful experiences can leave us feeling completely alone. Sometimes we just need someone to meet us where we are while helping us find a way to move forward. Healthy relationships are sometimes difficult to navigate, especially when there is a lifetime of hurt getting in the way. I want to help you create healthy, fulfilling, and nourishing connections with those you care about. Along with anxiety and depression, I am passionate about working with people who have sexual trauma.
My style of therapy is based in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). This model of therapy allows me to connect with my clients on a deeper level and gives the client a space to gain a greater understanding of their past or current struggles. I have found that most often, we try to navigate through life and generally carry the burden of the past entirely alone. YOU do not have to be alone anymore. I am devoted to helping my clients find connections and move forward after trauma. I can help you move to a place of healing and connection.
I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy to explore what is contributing to your distress, whether that is something from your past or something you are experiencing today. I have completed trainings in this model of therapy specifically regarding trauma and how to work with both individuals and couples to give them the tools to foster healthy connection.
I believe people are doing the best they can with what they have but are often punished for the tools they use to survive past hurts. I want to work with you to find a path to be the person YOU want to be. There is more to life than just surviving. I want to show you a better way.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, horseback riding, or watching Netflix. I also find joy in sharing my love of baking with the people I care about.
