Julie Brown-Nierman


Julie Brown-Nierman earned her Bachelor of Arts in Human Services from Franklin Pierce College in 2005. She later received her Master’s in Social Work from the University of New Hampshire in 2008. Julie is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Social Work at Simmons University. Julie is a member of the National Association for Social Workers and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. In addition, Julie has completed a practicum in mindfulness and psychotherapy.


Julie has had the great pleasure of working with clients in diverse settings over the course of her career.  She began working with adolescent girls in a shelter setting.  Julie then transitioned to a hospital setting to offer support to patients.  Julie later worked in community-based therapy which led to her opening a private counseling practice.

Treatment Philosophy and Approach

Julie’s therapeutic approach is individually tailored toward the strengths of her clients.  She will work to establish a trusting relationship with you where you feel accepted and supported.  Clients typically seek Julie out for grief counseling, anxiety, depression, chronic illness, and/or while facing significant life adjustments.

Individual counseling sessions are offered to support you.  Trying to work through your concerns alone can be very difficult.  Having a safe place, and the support of an experienced and compassionate therapist during life’s challenges can be beneficial.  

Julie’s philosophy is to treat holistically, understanding that we exist as physical, emotional, and spiritual beings.  In this psychodynamic environment, coping mechanisms are explored and expanded upon.  Julie is trained in Socratic questioning, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Meditation will be incorporated into sessions if clients are interested.


Julie can be reached by email, or by phone 978-219-7356 to set up appointments. Julie is currently accepting insurance from United Healthcare and Optum.
