Hi, I’m Judy Herman!

I’m a relationship therapist, but you can think of me as a soul cheerleader for individuals and couples. 

From my own relationship and personal journey I’ve learned it takes a lot of work to emerge into your true self. It’s a continual process. And it’s a challenge to balance our individual needs while in relationship with others.

Like ballroom dancing, couples learn to change their relationship style. Whether its fine-tuning the dance steps or changing the music, they begin to flow to the rhythm of life together. It takes lots of practice.

What I’m working on now

My clients have inspired me with their resilience and growth. Given that, I’ve pushed myself to grow in writing, recently finishing the first draft of my memoir/self-help book about how relationship messes are divine invitations for knowing your true self. Several edits are in process now.

I’m active with Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute (CWLI) where I serve on the Leadership Studies Committee.

Inspired by Ken Davis, I’m putting preparations in place having recently attended Scorre One-Day Workshop for Conferencespeaker’s training. I’ll be adding a speaker’s page to the media tab in case you’re interested in my speaking for your event.

I’m advocating for webcam group supervision for pre-licensed counselors. My recent attendance at  “Women in Politics classes” through CWLI has inspired me to influence our Health Related Boards for Professional Counselors.  For several months, a group of peer counselors meet in my office for support and relationship-building.

My challenge is to connect regularly with those on my email list to share valuable relationship insights. Also, I’m working on being courageous enough to do weekly live Facebook videos about the contents of my book about relationship messes. By the way, I’d love for you to “like” my page.

I’m learning to say “no” to good opportunities that come my way so I can say “yes” to the greater opportunities that energize me and enhance my well-being.

Since participating in an MBSR program (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) through Center for Mindful Living, I have a daily practice of meditation. It helps me be more present with my clients and I highly recommend anyone in leadership to consider the benefits.

What I do for fun

Couples CounselingMy husband and I believe having fun together means connection with each other. We met through ballroom dancing! Yes, we really did. It’s a perfect analogy for relationship patterns, but we really do enjoy it as a hobby. Our favorites are Viennese Waltz and Swing!

I’m energized by backyard adventures with my four young grandchildren. Hubby and I enjoy the outdoors – camping, canoeing, hiking, and bike-riding.  Water aerobics and swimming are my summer exercise programs.

Spiritually-speaking

I consider each person I encounter as a divine appointment with depth of soul. I am a Christ follower and nurture my relationship with God through my church involvement, study and reflection of Scripture, and periodic soul care retreats. I honor differences with openness. My focus is relationships and living intentionally.

Trustworthy relationships empower whole-hearted living for generations to come. Click To Tweet

That’s why I hope you sign up for my email list.
