Jules Ough

Practicum Trainee
Pronouns: they/them/their(s)

I seek to create an encouraging therapeutic space in which people can safely explore their intersecting identities, interests, and values. Together we can identify your unique needs, challenges, and goals in order to strengthen your self-understanding and move towards personal growth. My approach to counseling is strengths-based, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive. I am passionate about serving fellow LGBTQ+ people.

Jules is an M.Ed. candidate in their final year of graduate school at Vanderbilt University. There they study Human Development Counseling with a specialization in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Drawing from a variety of experiences such as studying English, outdoor trip guiding, and archiving, Jules appreciates the value of exploration in identity development.

They are passionate about assisting people who are experiencing grief in its many forms: the death of someone significant, the end of a relationship or chapter of life, or the shedding of former worldviews or identities. They also enjoy working with people who are experiencing adjustment, relational, and developmental stressors. Jules is passionate about serving fellow LGBTQ+ people.

Jules practices strengths-based, trauma-informed, and relational-cultural counseling to assist people in exploring and embracing their intersecting identities, interests, and values. They also utilize certain skills and perspectives from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) such as identifying and committing to personal values and increasing distress tolerance.

In their personal life, Jules enjoys participating in book and art clubs, playing video games, spending time outside, and being with their loved ones.
