Judith Lathrop


About Me

I hold a master's degree in marriage and family counseling and am a New York State licensed marriage and family therapist. I received my degree in 1996 and have guided many families, couples, and individuals to better relationships. I hold advanced certification in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy through the Wellness Institute in Issaquah, WA, which has helped me identify and heal my own issues and, therefore, become a better therapist. I have had many personal growth experiences that have molded me into the person I am today, as well as making me a more empathetic therapist. I believe I needed to work through my own issues in order to give my best to you.

My treatment specializations include help with depression and anxiety, couples counseling, family counseling, parenting support, grief counseling, work and career issues, stress management, family members of addicts, conflict resolution, and assistance to stop tobacco use and weight release. My approach is a mixture of Family Systems techniques, Strategic techniques, and Solution-Focused counseling. I personalize my approach so it is tailored to your individual needs to help you attain the personal growth you’re striving for. I assign homework if it seems appropriate to help you achieve clarity about a problem. I truly believe the answer lies within you and my role is to guide you to find it. I work at your pace whenever possible but will push if it seems like you are stuck.

I understand how difficult it can be to seek help and know that it takes courage to work toward a more fulfilling life. If you are ready to take the first step I am here to support and empower you as you move forward. I look forward to getting to know you on your journey!

Judith was very insightful & helpful, asking the right questions to provide and bring about solutions. She was never forceful in her approach, only encouraging.
I would welcome working with her again.

Had a great initial consult with Judith over live chat. I had never done that before, had a lot more to say than I could type out, but she was patient and made it feel more comfortable than I thought it would be.

Judith seems to be a perfect fit for me. She is very insightful, empathetic and has lots of great suggestions about coping skills that I am finding to be very helpful. She is responsive and clearly cares about her work with clients.

Judy is a wonderful therapist and she has quickly become my go-to person for advice on all of the crazy things that have been happening in my life. She's honest, very caring, and straightforward. Her responses are prompt and often very thorough. This has been my first experience with a counselor and I am so glad Judy and I were matched together!
