Julianne Passen, LPC
- Licensed Professional Counselor
Hi, I'm Julianne Passen.
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.
How I Can Help
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.
