​​​​​Welcome !

Thank you for visiting my website and I look forward to providing you with information that will support your decision in seeking a therapeutic partnership for change.  Any decision to step into a more self-aware and enhanced life takes courage and vision.  I am a licensed therapist with graduate and post graduate training to support clinical expertise and over 25 years of experience working with clients in behavioral health care.

My specializations include use of evidenced based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral techniques, Solution Focused, Family Systems and related theories and applied tools to the treatment of Anxiety Disorders and Depression.  Neuroscience as it applies to brain neuroplasticity, (the brains ability to  restructure itself), is a component to selected treatment interventions, especially in the treatment of Anxiety Disorders. Our first session will include an individualized assessment and focus on immediate priorities, including real life tools that will translate into goals, outcomes and change.  You will leave our first session with increased awareness, a supportive plan to begin, hopeful expectations, resources and access to more.  I encourage communication in between sessions as needed. (email updates and questions are welcome).

Judith MacDowell, LCSW

Thank you.

Our partnership will be very interactive.  In addition to an individualized assessment, we will discuss current, daily symptoms or challenges.  You will be encouraged to share your priorities for the path to goal development.  I will provide you with a introduction packet with clinical insights, resources to support understanding and clarify of immediate issues.  You will also receive resources, references, action tools to use immediately.  Our partnership comes with respect for your needs and choice about future oriented progress, compassion, mind/body supports and my ongoing commitment to guiding the change that you seek.

Balance is within reach.
