Dually credentialed as a speech-language pathologist (CCC-SLP) and mental health counselor (LMHC), she has a long career teaching in the areas of child speech-language disorders, treatment methodology, and counseling. Through her popular counseling course at the University of Washington and counseling workshops around the country, she taught students and professionals to understand and monitor emotional boundaries as a key to managing challenges that arise in professional life, particularly in the interpersonal realm.
Judy is a gifted teacher and was always devoted to her students, but she never separated herself from the clinical world. Throughout her career she working with children and families in early intervention centers, schools, and clinics, and she left the University for a period to reconnect with the realities of direct service. Her time in the field affirmed her belief in bridging academic and clinical worlds with a deep knowledge base and practical, “people-friendly” methods.
Though retired from full-time teaching, Judy continues to be active professionally by offering presentations, workshops, and continuing education seminars to helping and service professionals. Her workshops vary on specific topics but share the themes of self-awareness and emotional skill for the professional who strives for clarity and compassion in meeting patients’ needs.
Judy also continues to work with select patients and families in a consultant role. She finds that working with others on a limited basis reminds her of the challenges inherent in the helping role and the need for on-going professional growth. She has learned that staying grounded is key to her satisfaction and success, and she strives to practice what she preaches (and teaches) on a daily basis.
