Judith Stout works in our San Jose location. Currently, Judith sees clients in office and through Teletherapy
We all experience trauma in our lives, and sometimes severe life events and everyday stressors can leave us feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, and confused. As a therapist, I am here to work with you to go from just surviving to thriving. I believe that within each one of us lies a desire to live to our highest potential. As we develop from childhood we accumulate a set of understandings that shape our thought patterns, which don’t always serve us in a positive way. This can result in getting stuck in emotional, behavioral, and neural patterns that generate conflicts in one or more areas of our lives. I provide a holistic (mind-body-spirit) approach to treatment. Therapy is an opportunity to honor our experience and become friends with ourselves. I see the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client as a partnership in which we journey together to bring about the change you want in your life.
Working with individuals, teens/adolescents, and couples. Focusing on trauma/PTSD, life transitions, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, women's issues, and relationship issues, using holistic and other evidence based approaches.
I hold a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University as well as a BA in Psychology from San Francisco State University. I look forward to working with you and to help you empower yourself to make positive changes in your life. It is not always an easy journey and I understand that making the decision to seek help can be a difficult one. I use an approach that is empathic, compassionate and non-judgmental to help create an environment where you feel supported in your counseling journey. I use a humanistic and holistic approach to person-centered therapy, incorporating mindfulness, guided imagery, DBT, as well as other evidence based approaches.
