Judith Gondell, Ph.D., M.F.T.



Dr. Judith Gondell has been practicing psychotherapy for over 25 years. Her emphasis is one of integration. Her goal is to help her patients integrate their internal experiences (and feelings) with external reality (and relationships). She believes that successful living entails being able to balance, integrate, and make use of both spheres in one's life. Her specialties include parenting and child development, couples' therapy, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, eating disorders, incest/abuse survivors.

Judith has studied developmental psychology and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. She received her Masters' Degree from California Family Study Center in 1979 and her Doctorate from California Graduate Institute, where she received a nomination for the Josephine Bernstein Research Award for Best Theoretical Dissertation of 1996. Her Doctoral dissertation focused on understanding crucial Mother-Infant interactions. She has received training and supervision from some of the best psychotherapists and psychoanalysts in the Los Angeles area and has just completed a year-long training program in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy.

"Today my approach is a synthesis of these various schools of thought which enables me to address the deeper levels of a person's emotional experiences as well as their everyday relationships."

Dr. Gondell's interests include health and nutrition, hiking, heroic literature, theater and travel. Lately, she has been reading about quantum physics just for the fun of it. She lives with her husband at the beach, just outside of Los Angeles.
