More about Judith... 

You may have already tried many different things to feel better.  I know I did!

My own diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.) several years into my private practice impressed on me the need for informed emotional--in addition to medical--support for anyone contending with such life-altering changes. The focus of my work, education, and training is to better address this need. 

My formal training includes: 

Licensed psychotherapist MFT#mfc36770 since 2000

Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, The Grief Recovery Institute®

MA, Body-Oriented Psychotherapy, California Institute of Integral Studies

BA, Sociology, Williams College

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, UCSF and Commonweal

Bereavement and End-of-Life Care, Zen Hospice Project

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with Steven Hayes (author, Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with David Burns (author, Feeling Good)

Professional memberships include:

National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS)

Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA)

Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS)

California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT)

The University of California, the Osher Center, CIIS (California Institute of Integral Studies), Spirit Rock, the Institute on Aging, Kaiser Foundation, ACBS (Association for Contextual Behavioral Science), and many other venues provide my ongoing education and training focused on illness, aging, loss, pain, end of life issues, specific disease presentations, research, and evidence-based therapies.

My clients have always been my best teachers as they find their way to a better life than they ever thought possible.
