Jules Perkél – Northeastern US
Jules Perkél (pronouns she/her/ella) is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a psychotherapy practice based in New York City. Since 2011, she has worked in a community based program in the field of domestic violence/intimate partner violence with the intersection of disability. Connected to the spectrum of identities in the people she holds space for, aspects of her own identities as a multicultural queer cis-woman inform a commitment to facilitate learning infused with compassion, curiosity and courageousness. Jules’ life and work practice are influenced by The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond, Black radical politics and tradition, Black liberation psychology, ancient and traditional healing wisdoms, and roots in the martial arts of Tai Chi and Judo. She is clinically trained in Internal Family Systems, Modern Psychoanalysis, EMDR, Liberation Focused Healing framework, and various somatic-based techniques. She holds BS degrees in Communications, Sociology, and African American Studies from Temple University, and a masters degree in Social Work from the Columbia University School of Social Work.
