Warmest greetings and welcome,
My intent is to be a knowledgable and encouraging guide as you make new choices about your life. I teach practical, evidence-based life skills from the latest science of well-being. Once you learn the tools, they are yours forever and you can share them with others. I also honor the wisdom of master teachers from many cultures and across time. My clients are successful because we work together to explore your goals, set a plan, and measure your progress. Act on your knowledge that life can be different and register to work with me.
Before you do, there are four absolutes to which we agree for every session:
Non-judgement- Every person is unique. Your individual journey cannot be created by anyone other than you.
Total Honesty - You can only achieve emotional healing by speaking your truth. You find your truth as you learn new skills. I am your guide.
Focus - Therapy is sometimes hard work. Focus is essential, so, just as if you were in my brick office, phones, media, children, pets or other people are not allowed in your session.
Absolute Confidentiality - Everything revealed or discussed in any session is confidential, unless you seek to harm yourself or others. That we discuss.
I work only with individuals because I believe each person deserves a private time to explore their inner strengths. When you know yourself, you will create healthier relationships. I do not provide counseling to couples or families or teens. I am not the right therapist if your prime discomfort is your own substance, food, or sexual obsessions.

Judy has been timely and sincere in all of her responses. Judy presents tools for me to use to help me combat my demons, bad habits and provide a clear path to feeling better.
Judy is truly great and I am lucky to have her as my counselor. She listens and provides valuable feedback and advice. This was my first experience with therapy and I initially dreaded the thought of telling someone about my fears and anxiety. In our first meeting Judy instantly made me feel comfortable and I was able to relax and speak honestly. The dread I once felt is completely gone and I now look forward to our conversations.
I’ve only met her once but she seems very calm and patient.
She is an excellent counselor and very supportive.
Judy Carran is a bright light, she is a great therapist and has helped me so much.
Judy is probably one of the most intuitive clinicians I have ever encountered. She holds space for all of the things I bring to the table. She challenges me, she supports me, she listens to me and she TEACHES ME. She is purely magical.
Judy is amazing!
Has continued to support and guide the last three years. It's nice sometimes just have someone neutral to talk to, that gives great feedback.
Judy has been a great help for me. I have been able to open up of what is really going on in my head. Once I was able to admit it, I feel so much better. The grief will always be there but I can find the happy of the time my husband and I were together.
I would highly recommend Judy. I have a friend that lost her husband a few months ago and I will be sending her this information.
Judy has helped me stay positive and keep a great out look on life in a challenging time. Thank you
I have been working with Judy Carran for several months now and really value and appreciate her and her methods. There are several things I initially (and continue to) seek help for including: grief after a serious loss, depression stemming from complicated grief disorder, ADHD management, and more (yes, I AM fun at parties)! ;) Seriously though, I have a lot on my plate (as I’m sure you do as well) and really needed a knowledgeable, experienced counselor to help me manage. Judy truly fit that bill. When we first started meeting, I was in a place of chaos; Judy was instrumental in navigating through that. Now, I’m in a better place and still get so much out of our sessions. Thus, I plan to continue my sessions with Judy for as long as possible.
Judy’s methods are science-based which I appreciate. She takes great notes and always remembers what we’ve talked about (even several month later). This is crucial so that one doesn’t waste time re-explaining things. I never feel like Judy wastes my time in any manner and I always feel like she is truly invested in my happiness and success. Each session, we work together to set benchmarks and goals that add value and quality to my life. I appreciate that she checks in and -- in a kind and loving way -- holds me accountable and motivates me to follow through. :)
If you are looking for a compassionate and effective counselor who will offer real-world solutions, a listening ear, and a hopeful outlook, then look no further; Judy Carran is absolutely wonderful and someone you’ll want on your team! 5 out of 5 stars!
Judy has been amazing. I could not wait to return to therapy with her and personally I wouldn’t want to see anyone else.
Very helpful with a lot of experience. I greatly enjoyed working with Judy.
Very kind and respectful. I appreciate her efforts to engage me in a variety of ways as well as resource links
My sessions with Judy Carran have been invaluable. The discussions are intentional and somehow perfectly customized. I'm very fortunate to have Judy as my therapist :)
Simply put, Judy is a gift. I’m incredibly grateful for having found her.
Judy has been a true blessing in my life during this most difficult time. My goal is to embrace my new normal as a Widow. She has amazing insight and has been able to support me as I learn to navigate my life without my Husband. She has been able to answer my questions and offer me new tools to manage my family relationships, as they suffer the loss as well. Judy is the Best in the Business and a true professional that I trust!
Very helpful, followed up with me even though I didn’t contact her until recently.
Judy Carran has been very helpful. She listens to me and provides good feedback because she truly understands my concerns and cares about her patients. She provides exercises and interesting articles to help me reach my goals. I highly recommend her!
I look forward to my sessions with her. I see a change for sure after talking with her. She cares and it shows. She has helped me become more confident and less stressed. I always talk with my friends about how I’m doing since asking for help and make sure to recommend better help with anyone that I think needs it. I was scared to ask for help but definitely glad I did.
Judy is great. Have gotten so much help from her and appreciate her ability to be present and helpful as well as providing a wide range of tools.
Judy has been amazing! She has provided some great tools to work through things and listens. I really feel like she cares and is so positive about things. It has been great to have that extra support and know that I can always reach out to her as a trusted sounding board.
I find Judy to be incredibly helpful in my everyday life. She’s taught me many skills that I use constantly to improve my lifestyle and I couldn’t be more grateful. She’s always looking for new ways to help me actively engage in becoming a better version of myself, even in times when I don’t feel like I can.
Judy is wonderful. She has so much knowledge to offer and really listens to my concerns.
Judy is a calming and centered influence and obviously present and acutely aware.
I appreciate working with her.
Judy is patient, kind, and wise. She is knowledgeable and on top of current research and strategies which she implements into my treatment. She is helping me with anxiety, depression, and self confidence. I feel heard, respected, and cared for while working with her. She offers great suggestions and has alternatives when something does not work for me. Judy has been helping me to build a toolbox of skills for a better life while also hearing me out to "get things off my chest". In line with more recent research, she works toward teaching me to build strategies for a happy, fulfilled life, rather than simply aiming for a "non-depressed" life.
I enjoyed our first session. Judy and I share similar experiences. I can connect with her!
Judy is intuitive, adaptive and full of guiding patience.
She is the best. She is always checking in on me, even when I’m in the dark. She is so encouraging and supportive.
Judy is great!
Judy is an amazing counselor. She is so patient and kind. Judy is great about helping me emotionally process while being present in the moment. Looking forward to continuing to work with her.
Judy is so absolutely fantastic. I don’t have enough good words to say about her. She understands me at a very deep level, and even without in person sessions, she picks up on my current state and helps me reframe difficulties. I feel so lucky to have found her!!!
Judy is very sweet. She is a great listener, she offers comfort and advice, but doesn't tell me what I should do... more like asks questions and helps to guide me. She's knowledgeable and kind. I feel I've made real progress with her by my side.
After a long road to starting my mental health journey, I am so thankful to have been matched with Judy. She is an amazing listener, wise, and truly cares about her patients. In just the short time I've known her, I felt that we have already made so much progress together. I am looking forward to continue working with her.
Judy is awesome!
