Since the publication of my books, Addiction
to Love and The Art of Changing, many people have
asked me for my advice. I am happy to say that I have finally decided
to hang out my shingle and make my services available. Please understand
that I am not a therapist. I am a licensed teacher—with 38
years of experience helping people understand the nature and origin
of their problems and how they can find the path to a better life.
My specialty is working with love addicts, avoidance addicts, codependents
and couples. I am also a wounded healer which means I am a recovering
love addict and codependent myself. This is why I know healing is
possible and that my advice really works.
$100/session (fifty five minutes)
$50/session (thirty minutes)
consultation includes a review of your case and a diagnosis, followed
by an explanation of what your recovery will entail.
this point on, if you want to continue, our time together will be
a discussion of how to treat codependency and love addition. I do
Transactional Analysis, also known as "inner child work."
I help people work the steps if they prefer that treatment, but
I recommend what we call psychodynamics—exploring the relationship
between your childhood issues and your current codependency and
me if you have any questions about what I offer. Please bring a
journal to the meeting to take notes and to do your homework assignments.
If you have scheduled a phone call, please call me. Once you have
scheduled an appointment, please allow 48 hours notice for a cancellation
unless it is an emergency.
followup sessions, your options include Zoom, phone calls, or email.
The value of an email session is that you have a transcript of the
infomation I provide for future reference. The first step in recovery
is to understand what is wrong and what you can do about it. Recovery
happens slowly in small steps. So a written session will be with
you throughout the entire process . There is no time limit. I will
provide all the information you need to heal and move on. The fee
been so helpful in pointing me in the right direction for my recovery.
I love my therapist but she doesn't understand codependency or all
the different kinds of love addiction." Judith

assignments. The fee is $100.

Difference Between Psychotherapy
and What I Offer
is done with a licensed therapist. It can be defined in different
ways. Click here for a detailed list of definitions.
background is in teaching. I am a licensed teacher in the state
of California. My counseling takes my teaching to a personal level.
It is to the point and advice-driven. I have studied psychotherapy
enough to know when I should not be working with someone, so if
I do engage with a client I may confront him or her directly rather
than tiptoe around the problem.
expertise is teaching people how to help themselves. I have been
doing this for 38 years since I discovered I was a love addict and
There is always a brighter tomorrow. Trust me. I have been there.
I know what the pain is like and what it takes to recover. It takes
time and we must be patient. But we cannot do this alone. As they
say in CoDA. We need each other.
In 2014 I began working as a concierge teacher. I have been to Switzerland
and my last client flew in from Germany. If you want to schedule
this three-day workshop I can come to you or you can come to me.
Each day we spend four hours together in a hotel room (10-12 am
& 1-4 pm). Usually three days will be enough time to really
get you started in recovery. You might call it a mini-treatment
center with only you as a client. Contact me for more information.
