About me

Hi, I am Judy. I am so excited about the opportunity to support you here on betterhelp. I have worked as a therapist for over 23 years with experience in individual and family therapy. I have experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a broad range of clinical issues. I have the most experience working with anxiety, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anger management, family conflict, relationship conflicts, and complex trauma/abuse. I also have experience working with depression, intellectual/developmental disabilities, mild autism, and substance abuse issues.

I use a person-centered, holistic, eclectic approach in treatment, meaning I begin where you are and focus the treatment approached to your needs while ensuring the therapeutic relationship is built to impact the best possible outcome for your counseling experience. I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. However, I do incorporate more other approaches to counseling as well. I would describe my counseling approach client focused and supportive, but I am ready to help you tackle the obstacles you face in the most direct way possible. Together we can work on establishing goals and steps for you to help overcome your current problems. Living your best life is like preparing for a marathon, not a sprint. If you are looking for quick fixes, I am not the best counselor to work with. I believe in taking time and working on wellness slowly, holistically, and consistently. Just as physical health takes time and consistency, so does mental health! I look forward to helping you in any way I can!

I truly value the therapeutic relationship and hope to help guide you through the concerns and issues that you are facing. I believe that the most important part of therapy is a trusting relationship with a goal oriented focus I look forward to getting to know you and exploring options and opportunities together.
