Judy offers short-term and long-term individual and couples counseling, psychotherapy services and change coaching.  Counseling is short-term and designed to address specific issues with goal-oriented solutions.  Psychotherapy addresses deep-seated emotional wounds, is more in-depth and usually requires longer-term services.  Choice coaching supports and guides individuals who are considering or already making significant life changes.

Judy sees clients in her office in a nicely appointed professional building in the Sandy Springs area of Atlanta.  Her office is a peaceful and restful private room with comfortable seating, soothing colors, soft light, and a view of trees.
