Judith Vanderryn, Ph.D.
Judith believes people are capable of understanding themselves deeply by turning towards areas of difficulty in their lives.
At the same time, understanding is not sufficient to create changes – action is crucial.
Judith explores an individual’s history, development, present strengths, and challenges, with particular attention to obstacles to change the client may be encountering. Bringing clarity and curiosity to these obstacles or roadblocks helps create deep and lasting change. Judith Vanderryn received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1993.
She is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in working with people with a range of anxiety disorders, chronic pain, and depression.

Judith completed a postdoctoral fellowship in PTSD at the VA hospital in Denver.
Dr. Vanderryn has worked in numerous clinical settings, including private practice, college counseling centers, addiction treatment centers, and outdoor-based therapeutic programs. She is fascinated by how the mind and body connection manifests in mental and physical health, and has trained in techniques such as: biofeedback, EMDR, hypnosis, and transpersonal and cognitive behavioral (CBT) therapies to explore this connection. Judith has also completed training as a meditation instructor, and has a personal practice that includes a range of contemplative techniques. Judith’s goal is to use these varied techniques in partnership with her clients to improve their lives in measurable ways.
