Meet Julie Pate

Julie Pate, LPC, LCDC

Julie Pate

My name is Julie Pate and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I received my undergraduate degree at the University of North Texas in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Counseling. I went on to complete my masters of Counseling at Southern Methodist University. 

I have experience working at different levels of care including private practice, a residential facility for adolescents, and juvenile detention.  My passion is working with adolescents and young adults through life transitions, identity exploration, LGBTQIA+, substance use, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to heal and be recovered.

I honor the importance of a trusting therapeutic relationship with each and every client. I have no doubt clients are capable of growth and change when provided an accepting space to share their story. I strive to create a safe accepting place for clients to encourage the expression of their story and most authentic self. I value collaboration and supporting clients identify strengths, make insights, and explore new ways of coping. I believe people have the tools they need to handle life, but sometimes need help identifying those tools. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients process core beliefs and challenge deeper emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. I appreciate the chance to support clients in reaching their goals and become their most authentic self.
