Psychological Wellness Institute, LLC

Julie Alleman and Juliet Catrett met in 2015 at a training together in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). After several trainings together and certifications, and because both Julie and Juliet have a passion for serving people who have experienced trauma, they decided to join forces to create a counseling center for those who have experienced psychological, relational, and emotional trauma. As a result, Psychological Wellness Institute, LLC, was born in 2020. Julie and Juliet have over 35 years of combined post-graduate clinical experience.
