Thank you so much for all of your help. I really appreciate it and can not thank you enough. It means the world to me and I know that it will help me stay on the right track. “This” has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Thank you so much for your time.

I wanted to email you to say thank you. I feel like yesterday we rounded a bit of a corner. ... just a bit of a sobering conversation and realization. The grey cloud - I don’t want to go through life tired and exhausted and apathetic. I find myself saying things and waking up to things more and more and beginning to understand my actions or reactions, and just focusing on being healthy and happy as individuals and as a family. For me - hopefully this will be a step towards the sun.
— Client K.B.
You are such a valued person to our family and to this community. Thank you again.
— Tom Bowen
I like this gentle way of exploring, Judy. Thank you for sending it out to the group. I think it’s a good reminder for us all.

Judy has helped me solve many complicated quandaries. Her listening skills are near paranormal and the way she guides a person to their solution is breathtaking. She is always honest, clear, exceedingly warm and welcoming.
— Sarah Melton
I am a very different person since we last met. I have lost almost 60 pounds since April, with the assistance of a very intelligent physician and the Paleo lifestyle. I refer to it that way, because for me it is not a diet. It is a complete change in the way I eat. I exercise 2-3 times a week in the pool and I feel amazing. I started teaching special education full-time. I’m enjoying it very much and my wallet feels much better.
— Client M.B.
Judy is the best at what she does! She is so easy to talk to and always gives great advice. She is one of my favorite people and I am lucky to know her!
