Judy Loudin, MA
Licensed Professional Counselor
Since 1973 I have been in professional practice in the mental health/addictions fields as a therapist and an administrator. I opened the first private practice in this area specializing in women's issues in 1983 known as WomanCare Inc. Over a 16 year period, I employed up to ten therapists including myself and briefly had a second location in Niles, MI. Along with a cutting edge focus on women's issues, we provided counseling for men, couples, children and families. In 1999 I closed the group practice, retained the corporate name, and began a solo practice. I share office space in a lovely historic house (Remington House) with 4 other independent therapists.
Individual & couples counseling is available for the following:
- Relationship Difficulties
- Grief, Loss & Transition
- Step/Blended Family Issues
- Stress Management
- Anxiety & Depression
- Addictive Behaviors
- Spiritual Concerns
Over the years, I have come to understand the wholeness & healing potential within each of us. My belief in the integration of mind, body & spirit is reflected in my practice.
I am a Certified Imago Therapist which allows me to work effectively with couples either married or partnered.
Imago Relationship Therapy
"Counseling Is Good Preventative Medicine'
The above statement really applies to my work with couples! Improving your relationship will prevent you from being unhappy, dissatisfied, angry or fearful, all of which lead to serious stress and possible physical symptoms.
Imago is the Latin word for Image. Our Imago is the image we carry with us from our developmental years which influences how we see our world and how we act and react in our relationships, especially with our chosen partner. You will learn a style of communication called Intentional Dialogue which helps couples more easily talk through frustrations, needs and wants. Through a series of exercises, you will gain more self-understanding and be better able to relate to your partner with empathy.

It takes commitment, courage, patience & love to create a safe and passionate relationship.
REMEMBER! You too can move from an Unconscious Reactive Relationship caught in the Power Struggle to a Loving Conscious Intentional Relationship.
