Judi was my first therapist ever and made a seemingly scary process to begin so much easier. I appreciate her kind approach and listening skills. She really helped me change my life.

Written by J.U. on Dec 08, 2021 after therapy with Judi for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and anger management

Judi is excellent at listening, allowing space for me to articulate feelings I’m not sure I’ve ever articulated before, and then helping me expand on those thoughts through insightful responses or salient questions.

Written by R.H. on Dec 07, 2021 after therapy with Judi for 5 months on issues concerning family conflicts, parenting issues, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I have enjoyed speaking with Judi very much. This is my first go at therapy and honestly I ventured in reluctantly. As my husband and I enter a new retirement season in our lives, it has been wonderful to speak to someone who is unbiased and understanding and encouraging in helping me learn ways to communicate better in many different areas of our lives that our changing rapidly. It has been really nice; she has had fantastic insight.

Judi is very insightful and helpful. She listens to your concerns with empathy. Personally I appreciate her expertise and her wisdom. There are times the hard truth is difficult to hear but it is necessary in order for one to grow. Judi gives you the "hard truth" but she does it in such a way that all you can do is respect her advise and learn from it. Ultimately it is your decision but I definitely appreciate the time and guidance she provides me.

Judi has been my therapist for about a year and a half now. She continues to help me through big life changes as well as everyday anxieties and struggles. I cannot thank her enough for being so kind and gracious yet firm with me.

Judi is wonderful!

Written by D.A. on Jul 29, 2021 after therapy with Judi for 2 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and grief

I wasn't sure what to expect when I had to complete a survey prior to starting sessions. I understood it was to help pair me with the best counselor, but I wasn't so sure that could be done. I hesitated a while, and then "bit the bullet" and completed it. I am soooooooo happy I did. Judi was conscientious that I adored my previous counselor. We transitioned to a new EAP so I was unable to continue with my old counselor as he didn't have a private practice - he worked through a company. With how this was new one was set up with the survey, I am able to pick up where I left off. She asked for some background, and if I had a preference to how I wanted these to go. We started with messaging, and when I got comfortable, switched to phone, finally video. I've come a long way. I wish I had done this sooner. Having been raised by a narcissist took everything out of me. I now have more confidence and self esteem. Something like this which spanned many years is not going away over night. It comes off in layers, and I am well on my way on the road to recovery. Thank you Judi!!

Judy Fischer has been great! I've never done therapy before so I didn't know what to expect, but Judi made it very comfortable. She is easy to talk to and helps me see where my main areas of work are and gives me things to do to improve. I look forward to our sessions each week.
