Judy Goldsmith

(MSW, LMSW)

About Me

I am a social worker with 29 years of experience. My undergraduate degree is in Business and Psychology, and I have a master's degree in social work.

For the last 12 years my primary area of focus has been working with individuals, couples,and families in the area of relationship and family issues and the challenges and opportunities associated with being in a family system.

My approach to helping people is eclectic...which means I tailor the treatment to the needs of my clients. I have been trained to listen attentively and to understand what is being presented by people I am working with. I believe in the tenants of social work which stress confidentiality and treatment without judgment. My experience is that not every therapist is a good fit for every client but the right fit can be life changing.

I believe therapy is a gift someone gives to them self and it is an act of courage to understand that you need help and are willing to seek it. I look forward to helping you achieve your personal goals and help you have the peace of mind you seek.

Judy is amazing!

Written by M.A. on Jun 11, 2019 after counseling with Judy for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, and anger management

Judy is a godsend. She helped me through some very dark times, and was very easy to talk with about any difficult issues, and provided great insights. I cannot recommend her enough.

Written by A.N. on May 07, 2019 after counseling with Judy for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Been a few weeks and has been an incredible experience, both Judy and online form of therapy. I can’t say this would be a great form of therapy if it weren’t for her. I have hope again because of Judy. She is kind and extremely attentive. I almost don’t want to write a good review because I don’t want to lose her attentiveness.

I try to remember to have boundaries so I don’t bother Judy too much but she has never made me feel like I bother her and encourages me to keep in close contact. I can’t say enough good things about Judy and my experience.

Judy Goldsmith is an amazing person! The first time I spoke to her, she exuded warmth, knowledge, and understanding. Which is exactly what I needed then. She is an excellent listener, and doesn't make you feel like you are being judged. If in the future I need assistance, Judy is the one I'm looking for. And you should too.

Written by E.L. on Aug 05, 2018 after counseling with Judy for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and self esteem

I’ve really enjoyed working with Judy! I’ve talked to a few other therapists but none I’ve liked as much as Judy. She’s really helped me make some serious breakthroughs and she makes everything so easy to understand! Talking with her has really helped me understand why I was the way I was and helped me get to where I want to be. I even took a break from counseling for a while and came back when I needed help processing things again and it’s been just as helpful this time around as well!!

Judy has been a great help to me over the past few months. It has been so helpful having a non-judgmental person to confide in. Judy gives excellent advice for bettering myself and my relationships.

In a short period of time, Judy has helped me greatly. She is so easy to work with. She works on my schedule. I'm so lucky to have been paired with her. We are taking steps to get me healthy and in 3 weeks my mentality is slowly changing. Thank you Judy.

Written by S.I. on Aug 29, 2017 after counseling with Judy for 8 months on issues concerning depression, grief, and self esteem

I was really skeptical at first, and in the beginning I struggled to find the connection. But Judy is really patient and she let me take things in my own pace. She listens and understands and she's always there. She shows a genuine interest in who I am and what I do. I'm really happy with my counselor and I'll recommend BetterHelp and Judy to everyone. It's definitely worth it.

Written by H.A on Jan 29, 2017 after counseling with Judy for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, and grief

I absolutely love Judy. She helps me more than any therapist I've seen, including one I've spoken to for a few years in person. I'm confident that she guides me toward a life of happiness, fulfillment, and independence. Truly, I'm a much better person just from knowing Judy, even though I only just met her.

Written by S.E on Jan 14, 2017 after counseling with Judy for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping, and self esteem

Judy was slow to start with me- I am assuming because of the holidays- but she has been patient and diligent with me to get me to look at things in a different perspective that most others haven't. I appreciate that. She understands my concerns.

Judy has been really helpful in making me more aware of what are the potential causes of my bad feelings and how can I best deal with them. She listened to all I had to say without being judgemental. Thank you, Judy.
