Who I Am


Judith A. Shapiro, M.A., LMFT

As a licensed marriage and family therapist with more than 25 years of experience I work closely with my clients to help them better manage life's stressors, explore and understand the origins of their behavior and develop the best methods of coping with and reducing the symptoms of relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, loss and family dysfunction.  I tailor my methods to each individual's needs and will work with you to develop the skills needed to reverse the destructive thoughts and habits that are holding you back. 

Treatment Focus

My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths.  My preferred method of treatment is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  I present specific behavioral skills to foster growth and facilitate change.  I will work with you to to replace destructive thoughts and habits and suggest new practices that will allow you to more easily accomplish the things you need and want to do with your life.  We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan. 


My Commitment

I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles and heal from your pain.

In my practice I provide a caring nonjudgmental atmosphere in which I work with clients to develop self awareness and create new insights.

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger long beyond traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 




Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to better understand and strengthen their emotional connection in any stage of their relationship. Therapy sessions  are preferably held with both parties.  

My experience provides a supportive environment in which to discuss issues and solutions to better support your relationship.
