Judy Seoud, LMHC

I am a passionate and driven therapist who is committed to helping you achieve your mental health goals. My goal is to provide you with a safe space that will encourage you to explore your struggles, gain insight, challenge assumptions and beliefs about yourself, and appreciate your successes. As a therapist, I specialize in working with individuals facing issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, stressful life changes, communication, relationships, and social justice.

Every individual has unique needs, and I believe in tailoring my approach for your specific situation. I utilize an eclectic approach that is comprised of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Humanistic/Client Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness Training. I earned my double masters in Counseling Psychology with a concentration on Social Justice and Multiculturalism from Teachers College, Columbia University.

I invite you to reach out by calling or messaging to schedule your first appointment and begin your journey of in-depth self-discovery. I am eager to help you reach your full potential!
