We start with your nervous system, not your narrative

My Approach

Human beings are complex, integrated systems. Healing and transformation works best when all parts of the system -heart and mind, body and soul - are aligned in the process.

And it all starts with the nervous system. 

Over the past decade I have developed a  practical, brain-focused framework that has helped hundreds of clients to be happier, healthier, and more in control of their thoughts and emotions.

These simple tools are a fast and effective way to repattern habitual nervous system responses and live with greater peace, ease, authenticity, and self-compassion.

Experience & Education

I hold graduate degrees in nutrition and counseling psychology, specializing in the practical application of neuroscience and the change process. I am an Integrative Wellness Coach, trained at Duke Integrative Medicine. I am also a HeartMath® Certified Practitioner and Trainer and a certified provider of the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP).

For over 12 years I have used a holistic approach with patients and clients. I have worked as a mental health coach on an integrative care team in a family medical practice, spent 7 years working with adolescents on an in-patient psychiatric unit, and have worked with clients in private practice, individually and in groups. 

I have worked with hundreds of adults and teens who struggle with anxiety, self-critical thinking, and stress-related health issues. I have seen the profound changes that occur when we use a brain-focused, skill-based approach and harness the power of the nervous system to change even deeply embedded patterns of thinking, feeling, and reacting. 

My Passion

I am passionate about helping clients learn what most of us were never taught - how to repattern their nervous systems so they can live with less stress and emotional reactivity and more energy, resilience, joy, and self-compassion.

“Working with Judy is like having a personal trainer for my nervous system!”

I am an Integrative Wellness Coach, Educator, and Trainer, not a psychotherapist. The tools and approaches I use are intended to help clients learn skills to manage their nervous systems and to support them in behavior change. Skill-building and coaching support can be an effective adjunct to other forms of treatment, but they are not a substitute for appropriate medical or mental health care.
