Judy was born in the Appalachian Mountains to a life very much like the one described by J.D. Vance in Hillbilly Elegy. Since then she has lived many places, including graduating from high school in Ankara, Turkey and living in England as a small child, a country she still adores. Judy’s passion has been her work as a psychotherapist for the past thirty years. She is an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) with a Master’s Degree in Counseling and is a Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. She has won a top award from the Women of Resilience in Santa Fe, New Mexico and has been a beloved speaker to Women’s groups. In addition to managing a private practice, she served twelve years as a Pastoral Counselor in churches in Asheville, NC and Wimberley, Tx. and also worked with clients experiencing blindness and vision loss for four years. Judy believes we are all created in the image of God and have within us that Divine Spark. Her joy is in traveling with clients as they courageously embark on the journey to find their way “home” to the authentic person they were created to be. Learn more at: judybennettcounseling.com
