Graduated from the University of Denver in 1994 with a Master's in Counseling Psychology
Judy has worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings and has spent much of her professional career helping individuals who experience depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse. She has worked with children and families, couples, and both victims and perpetrators of abuse.
Throughout her career, Judy has found that people are more alike than different, and the things that bring them to counseling revolve around similar themes, despite outward differences. She finds the opportunity to help people meet their goals very rewarding, and is constantly challenged to continue her education to better meet the needs of her clients. In addition to counseling, Judy spent several years working with refugees and immigrants, and treasured the opportunity to learn about other cultures and ways of life.
Judy speaks Spanish, and has counseled Spanish speaking individuals as well.
Since coming to NWTC in July of 2012, Judy has worked with students who are dealing with some of the very same issues mentioned above, as well as students who are going through job loss and dealing with the realities of being a returning student. She is excited about the opportunities this position presents, and looks forward to working with students in a variety of settings, whether it is in her office, in the classroom, or in the community. In the NWTC community, Judy participates in the Diversity Committee, the Fostering Future Makers group, and gives presentations for Connecting Families events.
