Judy Garvey MFTI
Why Judy? I’m insightful and down-to-earth, with an amazing ability to understand and bring clarity to complicated life situations. My clients describe me as a calm, compassionate counselor with a great sense of humor. My outlook is centered and balanced, and I create a warm and caring therapeutic environment in which you can rebuild your life.
Every person is unique. I believe it’s essential to support you in recognizing your strengths and emphasizing your successes, providing hope for a better future. I use a variety of theoretical techniques, including Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
I’ve helped clients struggling with many diverse and difficult life problems, including anxiety, major depression, serious medical diagnoses, alcohol and drug addiction, severe mental illness, grief and loss, marital difficulties, dysfunctional family dynamics, divorce, parenting issues, adolescent concerns and child behavioral problems.
As part of the therapeutic process, I’ve had the privilege of counseling clients on their path of self-discovery – resolving issues of career change, finding meaning in life and facilitating personal growth after loss or traumatic events.
