Emily Judge, LPCC, PMH-C
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
Welcome! I'm glad you're here!
I am a licensed professional clinical counselor and have been working in the counseling field since 2012. I have worked alongside children, teens, adults and families who have entered the mental health services world for various reasons including anxiety, depression, trauma, medical or developmental reasons, family disruption, life transitions, oppositional behaviors or stress related concerns. I received my master's degree in Community Counseling from Eastern Michigan University and hold clinical licenses in both California (LPCC) and Colorado (LPC). The therapeutic modalities I draw upon include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (including Trauma-Focused CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Feminist Theory (aims to understand the nature of gender inequality and acknowledges systems of oppression).
More recently, I've shifted my focus more closely to the perinatal community. I received my Perinatal Mental Health - Certification (PMH-C) from Postpartum Support International. After experiencing first hand the challenges that arise during this time and how isolating it can be, I decided I wanted to be part of the solution. I maintain that a healing aspect of counseling comes from a collaborative effort between counselor and client. Together we'll create a judgment free space where you can feel comfortable to process the hard questions and speak freely about the unknowns.
All people are welcome to inquire about counseling with me regardless of language, lifestyle, age, relationship status, belief system, ability, gender identity, citizenship status, race, ethnicity, unavailable childcare/children in tow, life experience or thoughts on counseling. I also have extensive experience using adapted mental health treatment for neurodiverse communities. (Please advise me of sensory concerns.) Whoever you are and wherever you've come from, I want you to feel welcomed here. Life is messy. You don't have to go it alone.
Outside of the counseling room (or zoom :-) ) I can be found with my two kiddos and husband reenacting scenes from Kung Fu Panda, examining roly pollies (pill bugs), searching the mountains for the Gruffalo or deciding which essential oil covers the smell of a dirty diaper better. In my free time, I love scouring the thrift store shelves or throwing clay on the potter's wheel.
