Sometimes in life, we need help sorting out problems and finding our way to the best solution. This is the reason I pursued a counseling degree, after working as an educational professional for over 20 years. My background in education provides me with experience in adolescent behaviors, depression, goal-setting and addressing family/parenting issues. I’ve honed my counseling skills to also be of help in grief work, life changes, motivation and goal-setting, as well as depression, anxiety and substance abuse/addiction.
The first step I take in the counseling relationship, involves empowering my clients to advocate for their emotional well-being. This means that my clients work to understand that they actually do know themselves better than anyone else. My job as their therapist is to help unravel the difficult circumstance or uncomfortable emotion that may be plaguing them. I use an eclectic style of therapy, because just as we are each individuals, not every therapeutic modality may fit a client’s personality.
My style of counseling is warm, inviting and most importantly patient with clients. I want to listen to them so we can move to a plan of action that will bring them clarity and resolution. I love working with clients and seeing hope come into their life after we work together. If you are ready to start a journey that will empower you, I am here to be your advocate!

Judy is an amazing counselor. She is working with our daughter and we can see first hand what a difference she is making as she helps to guide her through dealing with anxiety. It’s so wonderful to have Judy come alongside us, as parents, and be a voice of encouragement and give our daughter the tools she needs to navigate through difficult situations. We LOVE Judy!!
Judy has helped be the calm in my storm of figuring out motherhood when I didn't have the best mother/daughter relationship to glean knowledge from. She has helped me process my anxiety, feelings of frustration as a new parent, and worked me through those every day issues. She is quick, responsive, and kind. I appreciate her real world tips and ideas to help me through. I feel safe opening up to Judy and feel she is there to be the guiding light I need during some dark times.
Judy offered me grace, humor and patience and helped me find all those things in myself.
Judy is great at not only listening but also helping me move through things. She never pushes but allows me to take the time I need and encourages and praises me for the things I have done big or small that we are working through together. She’s the first counselor I’ve had that I haven’t wanted to close down on and I think it’s entirely due to her caring attitude, and the way she takes time to really understand where you’re at in the BIG picture. I’m so thankful I found this counseling site and have recommended it to all my friends and family. Life gets busy but putting yourself and your emotional well being on the back burner shouldn’t be something you have to do. With this you can fit it to your schedule, and work on you when it’s right for you;)
I was very happy with my session with Judy. I felt that she listened to me and allowed me to express myself and I felt safe throughout the entire process. I would recommend Judy to anyone looking for a caring and sympathetic ear.
Judy helps in every way imaginable and is there when I need help. I could not ask for more.
Judy has been a great help. She checks in and responds in a very timely manner. I believe she has gone through a grieving experience herself and that helps me know I'm understood. I would definitely recommend Judy!
I love that Judy takes the time and listens to both of our concerns, helps us to dig into the issues underneath the surface of our main concerns to help us work on the root cause. The exercises given to us are challenging but I understand why they are very important and necessary to be implemented in our relationship. She doesn't choose sides and helps us to turn our arguments into healthier and more resolvable discussion.
