About Me

Judith Harris, MFT
If, as Auntie Mame states "life is a banquet" I have not missed many of its courses! Like everyone else I've had my share of pain: 2 bouts with cancer, the ending of a 20 year marriage, a few unrequited loves and more political disappointments than I care to remember. But I have also lived my dreams - a career dedicated to teaching and healing; a past filled with extraordinary partners; a present filled with friends, family, and pets. I was trained as both a teacher and psycho-therapist (lately that's two words.) Through my work as a grief and trauma counselor I rediscovered the healing power of humor and have written numerous articles and cd's on "suffering in style", sustaining a sense of optimism in the face of adversity. As Director of the Attitudinal Health Association I provide counseling and humor based wellness training to individuals, groups and companies. I have been described as a "stand-up psychotherapist" who puts the "fun" in dysfunctional.
