Judith A. Verduzco, LCSW, MPA

Founder/ Psychotherapist

Hello! My name is Judith (Judy).

I’m a bilingual mental health psychotherapist and founder of Monarchs Therapy, a virtual mental health therapy practice in California. 

I specialize in treating trauma-related disorders (everything from acute stress to complex PTSD) as well as anxiety, depression, and grief/loss. My other specialties include issues related to personal growth, life transitions, and interpersonal/ relationship conflict. 

My aim is to help you achieve emotional healing and well-being through an integrative, client-centered, compassionate, culturally-informed, and evidenced-based therapeutic approach that is relevant to your specific needs and goals.

I am a firm believer that you are the expert on your own life. My mission is to assist you in highlighting innate talents, insight, and tools that will facilitate emotional wellness and healing.   

I invite you to contact me or schedule a free 15-minute virtual consultation to get to know each other and go over any questions you may have about the therapeutic process. Wishing you all the best in your healing journey.
