Judy Ulrich offers individual, marital and family psychotherapy to help clients to better meet the challenges of their lives. She hopes they will find and enhance individual strengths and resources, heal old hurts and “baggage”, develop potentials and build satisfying relationships. Building on her original psychodynamic training and work with children and adolescents, she has incorporated learning from family therapy and newer therapies and research, including EMDR, into her work. In recent years, she has worked particularly with adults dealing with serious illness, grief and childhood trauma and with couples seeking to improve their marriages.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I understand the unique challenges we sometimes face as we encounter relational issues, loss, trauma, anxiety, and depression. I will guide you through the storms, support you when you are falling apart, and challenge you when it’s time to take a step forward. Instead of pushing away from the “hard things”, it is important to put in the hard work, grow, and thrive in life. It is my honor to be a part of your healing journey. I use a variety of approaches and techniques to teach you new skills, explore new possibilities, build resilience, and facilitate connection.

My goal is to bring out the best version of you, and as a result, help you feel amazing. During our sessions, we will work together to get to the root of the issue. We will also work on improving your current state of mind. This process will make you excited about the future and provide you with a more positive outlook on life.

I specialize in working with individuals and couples struggling with anxiety, depression or trauma that often accompanies major life transitions (launching to adulthood, birth of a baby, career shifts, loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship/divorce, health crisis). Life transitions impact our identity, our relationships and our sense of Self, often in ways we don’t expect. If a life event feels overwhelming or is keeping you stuck in patterns of thinking/behaving that no longer serve you, let's talk. EMAIL inquiries are the most efficient way to reach me.

Do you have a running dialogue in your head. Ever notice how the voice talks about things you “should” be doing, opportunities missed or failures, but when talking about accomplishments or positive qualities, crickets. Together, we will work to change the dialogue and begin to be kind to yourself. When you talk to your partner do you hear carnival music because it feels as if you’re in a funhouse (without the fun). Talking gets you nowhere as old stuff comes into the conversation. “How about the time you did.” It’s beyond frustrating and exhausting.

Finding a new therapist can be hard. I believe that the most important part of therapy is having the right fit with the right therapist. In order to be open to the process you have to feel comfortable with your provider. Therapy should be a tool to find personal strengths and develop new resources. Therapy is a good place to start looking at where you might be stuck and searching for new strategies to add to your life. I hope that I can be a part of your journey.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
