About Us

Judy Hu, LMHC

I  have over 25 years of experience in human services -- ranging as a clinician and Associate Clinical  Director for an outpatient clinic in Cambridge, a clinician in an  elementary school and after-school behavior modification program,  Program Coordinator for trans-racially adopted children, and a  child-care provider. My most recent clinical focus has been working with  complex blended families. I also have significant experience working  with people touched by adoption (adopted people, birth parents, and  adoptive/foster parents).
 

My Approach

image47

My  approach is strengths-based and normalizing. Rather than looking for  what is "wrong with you", I look at you holistically in your larger  context. For example, acknowledging how coping skills that worked well  when you were a child may no longer serve you now, and how difficult it  can be to give up. I view you as a "client" rather than a "patient",  because we collaborate as a team. 

Qualifications & Training

 As a  Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I completed my Masters Degree at  Lesley University in Expressive Arts Therapy and Counseling Psychology. I  utilize traditional talk therapy, mindfulness, guided meditation,  expressive art therapies, and trauma informed interventions. I have also  studied Family Constellations work for several years, as it complements  and informs seeing the issues in a systemic way. These alternate  modalities are useful when words fail us, or when the source of our  distress is not clear.
