Pathways to Wellness & AIDS Services Foundation
As a psychologist, Judy has a unique understanding
of the complex pain and symptoms experienced by patients suffering with AIDS.
Since 1999 Judy has been providing psychotherapy to patients at the AIDS
Services Foundation in Orange County. Her compassion and tenacity to advocate
for adequate pain relief for her patients is remarkable. Colleagues are in awe
of Judy’s ability to meet the challenge of treating the most complex cases
involving patients’ physical, spiritual and psychological pain. In her
expertise, Judy understands the importance of team involvement; she regularly
refers patients to physicians for appropriate pain assessments and treatment.
Her reputation with physicians is excellent/ her judgment is trusted. One
colleague who knows her well remarks “Judy is one of the most giving and
compassionate people I know, working with some of the most difficult people and
complex pain problems in medicine, and she does so tirelessly and with a loving
heart.” We are proud to recognize Judy with the Award of Excellence.
"With a loving heart, she works tirelessly for some of the most difficult people
and complex pain problems!"
