Judith (Judy) Nichols

LCSW

About Me

I am a family, couples, adolescent and teen counselor licensed in New Jersey with over 10 years of experience working as a clinical social worker/counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, self harm OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, client strength and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Judy is the most effective therapist I've ever experienced. She is remarkably approachable and readily adapts herself to my situation and concerns. I find her to be a very good foil for my overthinking and negativity. She helps me energize my optimism and balance my skeptical negativity.

My first time seeking a therapist for better help I was very nervous of what the outcome would be meeting with Judy. When I met Judy I felt the total opposite. I completely open up like I never have been able to before. Judy is welcoming & truly takes the time to listen to you . She made me see apart of myself that i lost sight in seeing & I enjoyed her help throughout my journey in therapy . I know who to go to when I need true advice & someone to listen. Thanks Judy !!
