Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
After 25-years as a psychotherapist I know that the events which brought a client into counseling are really "openings" for the client to explore and review their life journey to date. My clients tell me, I am an expert in supporting this work for any number of reasons. I am a skilled, intuitive and compassionate listener. At the same time, I am direct, deeply perceiving and challenging. As a former religious sister, lay Buddhist and practising Vedantist, I tend to see the Spiritual (not religious) backdrop to all that is happening. "Soul-centered" best desccribes my work. My golden lab "Buddy" has been my co-therapist the past 10 years and remains so, now. We work out of a homey-office space located on the 7-acre grounds of a local retreat house. I am currently training as a "spiritual director" to further broaden the help I can offer clients who are seeking a deeper journey.

Featured Therapist 

Judith McFarland, MA

Judith McFarland M.A..

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Santa Rosa, CA

I am in private practice, delivering telemedicine via Skype and FaceTime or by phone. My area of special emphasis is helping people improve their important relationships, and working with my clients to decrease and stop depression. If you are reading this, chances are one or more of your important relationshps are not working very well. Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
