Judith Stout M.S., Registered Associate Marriage Family Therapist #85112
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.
