My name is Yvonne Judge. I want to help you to achieve healthy change using a variety of family therapy and hypnotherapy techniques. When you come to see me, I will work with you to understand the barriers that have kept you stuck, and work with you to change them. Let’s work together to allow you to achieve success at home, at work, and in every facet of your life.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Ohio. I am also a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I enjoy working with couples and individuals on a variety of issues from relationship problems to anxiety to PTSD.
I completed my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy at Northcentral University and am currently working on my Ph.D. there. I love research and learning is my happy place.
I am trained in a variety of therapies including Gottman Method Couples Counseling, Prepare/Enrich, SYMBIS, EFT, EMDR, Family Therapy, IFAST, and many others. I prefer to use what works best for each client. I do not try to fit you inside a box of my making.
I enjoy working with several populations. I love working with couples because sometimes small, simple changes can save a relationship. At other times, the issues are more complex but watching two people who love each other work to make their shared lives better brings me joy.
I enjoy working with individuals with Anxiety spectrum disorders such as generalized anxiety, phobias, and OCD. These problems can make it difficult to get up in the morning, let alone get to work and go about your daily routine. I have had great results using hypnosis to help relieve these types of issues.
I also enjoy working with trauma survivors and those with PTSD. Trauma can be difficult to overcome without external help. It can rear its ugly head at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected places. Many people do not realize that their symptoms such as anxiety, irritability and always being on the lookout for things to go wrong can be trauma responses.
I work evening and weekend hours and am currently accepting new clients. Feel free to contact me through the website, or by calling the main number. I am more than happy to speak with you and answer any questions you have about therapy, hypnosis, and more.
