About Julie Pitrello


Waiting room

Originally from New York, Julie has called the Nashville area her home for the last 20 years. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the State University of New York at Brockport and a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Argosy University.

Julie is a Licensed Professional Counselor/ Mental Health Service Provider (LPC-MHSP) in Tennessee and has spent the last 2 decades working in the behavioral health field. She has experience working with both adults and adolescents in a diverse range of settings that include academic setting, behavioral health clinic and a local hospital network. She has also offered therapy services as a private practice therapist for many years.

Julie sees therapy as a unique opportunity where choosing to honor yourself becomes priority. She believes that what often leads us to therapy is feeling lost in our experiences and emotions. Therapy can serve as a guide to help us safely navigate our way back.  She is passionate about supporting others in living authentically in their journey of healing and restoring connection to themselves and those around them.

Her approach to therapy has a collaborative spirit where autonomy and boundaries are honored. Her goal is to have clients leave empowered with specific tools to help reshape their lives. She has an interest in working with individuals experiencing anxiety as well as trauma and divorce recovery. She incorporates modalities that include CBT and trauma focused therapy and has training in EMDR, Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Brainspotting.
