My Christian faith has gives me purpose, strength and has been a source of direction for me throughout my life. In fact, this is the reason I pursued a counseling degree, after working as an educational professional for over 20 years. My background in education provides me with experience in adolescent behaviors, depression, goal-setting and addressing family/parenting issues. I’ve honed my counseling skills to also be of help in grief work, life changes, motivation and goal-setting, as well as depression, anxiety and substance abuse/addiction.
My job as a Christian counselor is to help my clients connect with the power that God provides them to change their lives. This means that my clients work to understand that with God’s help, they come to know themselves better and find solutions for their problems. My job as their therapist is to help unravel the difficult circumstance or uncomfortable emotion that may be plaguing them.
My style of counseling is warm, inviting and most importantly patient with clients. I want to listen to them so we can move to a plan of action that will bring them clarity and resolution. I love working with clients and seeing hope come into their life after we work together. If you are ready to start a journey that will empower you, I am here to be your advocate!

Judy is an active listener and her recaps after sessions prove this. She offers real concepts to lead me to self acceptance and actions to help move me forward to a healthy relationship with The Lord and away from what harms my mind or heart.
Judy is an amazing Godly counselor that helps one immensely to work through the emotional obstacles that block one from being the person God wants us to be!
She is easy to talk to, she is professional and also relaxed at the same time. She talks to me like a friend and it makes me feel like I can trust her more because of that! I am very comfortable sharing with her everything that's going on in my mind.
I feel heard and feel no judgement.
I want to thank Judy from the bottom of my heart to help me change my thinking about everything I went through. She was the perfect match for me! Over the past 9 months she was always very responsive to any requests for materials, worksheets, websites and audio that were pertinent to my healing.
One of the best things about Judy was that she always wrote a recap/summary for me of our session, which gave me time to think about what we talked about and I could read it over and over again to make a bigger impression on my thought processes. That enabled me to remember our session instead of just forgetting as soon as the next life distraction came along. I really treasured that!
I would highly recommend Judy. I have never had a counselor that was so knowledgeable, personable, professional and just such a lovely person who really cared. She gave me hope, helped to redirect my thoughts, brought out the reality of the situation and I just can't say enough about her counseling ability.
She would give me "homework" most weeks and I did it, which is the only way to improve oneself.......is by doing the work. Judy was so encouraging to me, so happy for me when I started improving. She wanted to help me move on and become a better person. I couldn't have done this without her. All my friends and family have said they see the change in me and they think Judy made a fabulous contribution to that by her ability to counsel.
One of my favorite phrases she used was that, "You have a superpower, and that superpower is God." That gave me courage and brought me closer to God. I thank God for Judy Bou Kheir and for this counseling platform.
Judy is great at not only listening but also helping me move through things. She never pushes but allows me to take the time I need and encourages and praises me for the things I have done big or small that we are working through together. She’s the first counselor I’ve had that I haven’t wanted to close down on and I think it’s entirely due to her caring attitude, and the way she takes time to really understand where you’re at in the BIG picture. I’m so thankful I found this counseling site and have recommended it to all my friends and family. Life gets busy but putting yourself and your emotional well being on the back burner shouldn’t be something you have to do. With this you can fit it to your schedule, and work on you when it’s right for you;)
