PTSD is my middle name. I've survived many grievous traumas and learned to thrive and create a beautiful life. How? I was willing to face blistering pain head-on related to my life events and circumstances. It motivated me to learn to accept my inner beauty and to love myself with all my  "imperfections."

I looked for answers outside psychotherapy, which only addressed my "why's" but not the "how to's"  for reaching my full potential. That encouraged me to embark on 45+ years of study and become a Transpersonal Therapist focused on how the subconscious mind works and how everyday word usage creates what a person thinks, feels, and even has for meals.  It was a genuinely transformational labor of love for myself, which for years, has benefitted others. 

My soul's purpose is to apply all the lessons, training, and wisdom I gained to alleviate a client's suffering and the cold sense of failure and insecurity. My passion as a coach is to help make a clear direction for a more fulfilling and happy life.

I sincerely believe working as a team, a person with a desire can and will achieve healing of the body, mind, and spirit and proceed through life with confidence and love for themselves.


Judith, her husband and soulmate, Drew, and Sadie, the rescue super-mutt, live in rural Upstate New York. Judith has two beautiful daughters--three boys who, through three different accidents, were deceased at ages 27, 35, and 37.

Persistent journaling led her to creative writing, being an author and award-winning poet, and, most proudly, to publish her memoir, Confessions of a Bar Brat. Relaxation comes from walking the Medicine Wheel, meditation, yoga,  tai chi, and art (see the Art tab for a selection of her work). Art is a gift she uses her transformational work to help her clients process and manifest through simple lines using colored pencils and unlined white paper.


Judith follows the Cherokee Road. For 50 years, she has been a member of the Association of Native Americans of the Mid-Hudson Valley, NY. 
The esteemed title of Grandmother Judith Laughing Owl, Keeper of the Women's Drum, is bestowed upon her. In her spare time, she teaches Native American corrective history, drumming, and singing. As Grandmother, her responsibility is to be a Mentor and Educator of Native ways for those participating in walking the Native American Road.
