For the client looking for effective and compassionate support making transformational positive changes in their life.
Common issues for clients coming in for therapy include addressing depression, anxiety, stress, life-stage transitions, self-esteem, self-care, and work/home life balance. Clients typically experience multiple symptoms including but not limited to loneliness, sadness, grief, anger, irritability, anxiousness, perfectionism, low energy, frequent fatigue, low motivation, isolation, relationship conflicts, identity issues, and/or a general dissatisfaction in life.
Frequent goals for clients include improving mood and daily functioning, improving relationships with loved ones through more effective communication and conflict resolution skills, rebuilding self-esteem and healing relationship to Self, repairing unhelpful belief systems and past traumas, and implementing sustainable self-care practices to maintain a more balanced, fulfilling lifestyle of health and wellness.
Using an integrative and holistic approach to therapy, Judi tailors treatment to an individuals’ specific preferences while using her expertise to know what may be most helpful to address to create the lasting changes each client seeks. No one therapy session is the same as there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Therefore you can expect a personalized, connected experience addressing exactly what you want and need individually for therapy to be supportive and effective.
Our meetings will start with a 50 minute initial session exploring your history as well as collaborative treatment planning clarifying yours goals and desired results from therapy.
After that, 50 minute follow-up sessions provide you learning, exploration, prompted self reflection, skill-building, and planned application with intention to create the sustainable, positive changes you’re seeking.

Couples often come in for counseling at a point where they believe their relationship is beyond repair. Communication has broken down, they lack trust, and intimacy no longer exists. At this point, one or both of your nervous systems are highly disregulated, which easily breeds conflict. Giving yourselves a chance to address this in therapy increases your chance of resolution.
Couples seek therapy for a wide range of reasons. More often than not, couples seeking therapy have trouble communicating effectively. Consequently, there is a break down in one or many parts of the relationship.
Often times Karen hears that couples have lost time for one another in their busy lives, the trust is gone, they feel betrayed, their sexual lives and desire have diminished, or they fight and argue about the same things and never find resolution. Some issues you may address are: communication, conflict resolution, money and finances, sex and intimacy issues, fighting and anger issues, gender roles, addiction, in-law struggles, religion, values, fertility, parenting, marriage, and many more.
The shift in a relationship can bring about many emotions, including sadness, confusion, and despair. We’ll address everything that you’re feeling, as well as your concerns, and we’ll collaboratively have a plan and set goals to get the relationship back on track.
What Karen expects of you as a couple:
She expects a serious commitment from you in your work together. She expects you to be open to learning, growing, and receiving feedback that will relate directly to your role in the relationship. She expects you to try not to be defensive, to communicate when you are, and to commit to altering the behaviors that are damaging to the relationship. When these conditions are met, there's an excellent chance that the relationship will wind up in a stronger place than it’s ever been in before.
