Judith Velez, PhD LCSW Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist


Everybody needs help sometimes. There are moments when we may feel stuck. Whether it is due to a difficult life event such as a loss, divorce, major change, or issues from the past that continue to exert their influence in the present, we all go through challenging times. If you are experiencing relationship difficulties, anxiety or depression, you are not alone. These are the most common reasons why people seek psychotherapy services. Stress exerts a significant influence on our well-being. Since stress is a part of our lives, how we handle it becomes critical.

Psychotherapy offers us the opportunity to sort out our feelings, identify and understand the issues affecting us. It takes a great deal of strength to acknowledge that issues have to be addressed and perhaps dealt with in a different way than in the past. There are many skills that one can learn in psychotherapy that can help us cope and manage our feelings and relationships in more positive ways. I am an experienced, well trained mental health provider who has worked extensively with children, adolescents and adults. I am committed to the provision of high quality, personalized care. This means that we will review your concerns, issues and goals and tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs.
