Welcome to The Bulitts

The Bulitts

A licensed clinical social worker, Julie Bulitt has spent more than 25 years working with individuals, couples and families. Her private practice focuses on family, couples and individual therapy, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and Executive Functioning coaching. She has served as a Clinical Supervisor and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant for the Montgomery County (Maryland) Mental Health Association, an Adoption Therapist for the Center for Support and Education in suburban Washington DC. She presently serves as the in-house therapist for The Discovery Channel in Silver Spring, Maryland. David Bulitt is a partner in the Washington DC Metro law firm of Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, PA. For more than a decade, he has been chosen as one of the Washington area’s top divorce lawyers by multiple publications, recognized as one of the “Best Lawyers in America” and a Washington DC Metro “Super Lawyer.” Praised as “the lawyer who epitomizes stability and old fashioned common sense” by Bethesda Magazine, David has a particular interest in families with special needs children as a result of personal experiences in his own family. He is a published author of two fiction novels, multiple articles in legal publications and has appeared as a special guest on several local television shows. David and Julie have been married more than 35 years. They have four daughters and three grandchildren. The Bulitt’s first book, the award winning THE FIVE CORE CONVERSATIONS FOR COUPLES was released on Valentines Day 2020 and is available in paperback, audio and ebook formats. From their differing vantage points and often contrasting perspectives, Julie and David have seen up close families struggling with life’s most difficult challenges. At the same time, they have weathered our own challenges at home, raised four daughters, two biological and two adopted, and dealt with one child’s mental health and behavioral issues, addiction, running away and pregnancy. What they have listened to, struggled through, and learned about saving a marriage, keeping a family together, or knowing when to call it quits, when to turn to professionals, or when to try tough love, it’s all fair game – in their book, their coaching sessions and their events and presentations.
