Rendering Unconscious welcomes Dr. Julie Futrell to the podcast!

Dr. Julie Futrell is a clinical and health psychologist currently located in Napa Valley. She has a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Duquesne University. Additionally, she holds a Master’s degree in Health Education from the University of Texas at Austin with specializations in mindful awareness and women’s health. Throughout my education and professional career, I have worked in hospitals, community clinics, skilled nursing facilities, crisis centers, universities, and in private practice. I am honored to have had so many opportunities to work with such a wonderfully diverse array of people from all walks of life, as these experiences have taught me the ethic of meeting each person where they are and as they are.

Dr. Futrell writes, teaches, consults, and provides individual psychotherapy. As a generalist by training, I work with most mental health conditions and life issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family discord, and professional struggles, to name but a few. In addition to my general training, I specialize in women’s issues and experience and in working with parents on how to raise emotionally attuned, self-aware children in today’s tumultous world.

Dr Futrell contributed to Rendering Unconscious, the book!  Rendering Unconscious: Psychoanalytic Perspectives, Politics and Poetry (Trapart Books, 2019).
