Hi and welcome! Congratulations on taking that first step to seek help. I have done that in the past, and I know it can be a little scary. So I am happy that you have reached out.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I have been practicing since 1996. I love working with others to create a trusting and collaborative relationship where we find workable solutions. I will have the highest respect for you and your well-being. This comes from a deep commitment to helping others find peace and joy in everyday life.
My counseling has taken me to some wonderful places. I have been blessed to work with many people in very different environs. These include community-based counseling with clients experiencing emotional disturbances, domestic violence, HIV-AIDS, homelessness, family disruptions, grief and loss, and long-standing problems from early childhood abuse and neglect. I've worked with chemically dependent clients, both outpatient and in clinical and correctional facilities. My private practice clients have included those with concerns that may require only short-term solutions and those that require longer term therapy. These clients have needed to work through grief and loss, relational difficulties, early childhood abuse and its effects, life situation adjustment struggles, anxiety, depression, addiction, and compassion fatigue.
I look forward to getting to know you and getting started together.

Judith has been absolutely incredible. She’s met every expectation I had for a therapist. She listens, understands and asks the right questions. It has only been a month and she’s already helped me understand and better myself in so many ways. I can’t wait to see how I continue to grow with her help.
