Ratings for Dr. Judy Moench
Dr. Moench is an extraordinary psychologist and person. I've been a patient of Judy's for several years and her expertise, care, kindness, attention to detail, warmth, and laughter are unparalleled. She is the standard to which all psychologists should be held. As noted below, in addition to her own warmth, her office is a soothing and safe environment; her staff are superb; and she is always willing to lend you resources to take home.
Dr. Moench has a wonderful presence, and she makes her patients fell safe and secure with great ease. She has a fantastic sense of humor and an unbelievable ability to empathize with what her patients are going through. I have been seeing her for about a year, and she has truly helped me work through some of the pain and trauma of my life. I highly recommend her.
I saw her when I was about 13-15, on and off for a few years (I'm now 22*). Always calmed me down to be in her office, even in the little private waiting room. She had water fountains, tea, calming music playing, and lots of photography books to read while you waited for her to get ready. I always felt like she was genuinely interested in my problems, and listened, as well as payed attention to my body language and the way I was saying things. She even gave me my own journal to take home and write and draw in so that I could bring it back and we could talk about it whenever I saw her. The only thing , not even negative, that I have to say about her, just something I wish she would've done:I was having severe panic attacks and she told me she could do a cognitive exercise similar to hypnotism and it would help a lot , but never did it, even when I asked her to. Otherwise, I really enjoyed talking to her.
Dr. Moench is very caring and an excellent listener. She explains the therapy process and makes sure you are comfortable with it. I felt very safe with her treating me and I had very good results. She provided me with exercises that I can utilize and I can go back to her if needed.
I looked for sometime to find a practical Psychologist that didn't just focus on "what my dreams meant" or "how I felt about my mother". Dr. Moench focused on recognizing my triggers and helped me develop tools to use in those situations. She is expert at getting YOU to recognize the meaning of what you are saying and there often seems to be "Aha!" moments when you realize that she has directed you to figure things out on your own with only gentle pushes in the right direction from her. I would likely be in a very dire situation if she had not given me the tools to help myself. Furthermore I did not have to perpetually continue with therapy in order to feel good. I was on the right path and kept it going myself. Sometime after seeing her I experienced a significant setback in my life and very easily reverted to using my tools to work my way through it.
