JUDITH A. BOGGESS, MSC
As with many of my clients, PTSD is my middle name. I have survived many grievous traumas and even learned to thrive and create a beautiful life for myself and my family.
How? I was willing to face pain head-on and use anger about circumstances and events in my life for motivation, to move through my fears, and to learn to love myself with all my "imperfections."
How? By looking for answers outside psychotherapy (which addressed the "why's" but not the "how to's") to reach my full potential.
How? I embarked on 45+ years of study on how the subconscious mind works and how everyday word usage created my reality. It was a truly transformational labor of love.
Since the '70s, I've applied all of these--the lessons, the training, the wisdom gained--to work with men and women of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. I help them unlock their subconscious and hold them responsible for their self-talk, which creates their reality so that they can stop suffering and finally create what they desire for themselves and in their lives.
I sincerely hope we can work together and achieve the same for you.
