Jude Webster DSW, MA, LCSW, LLC - Psychotherapy for Individuals, Couples and Families

101 Park St. Montclair, New Jersey | Tel. 973-746-4164 |

Welcome to my website.

COVID UPDATE: Due to New Jersey’s stay-at-home policy, I am currently offering sessions via phone and video conferencing only.

Since you have come to my website, you are probably interested in therapy. Let me help you understand what you would experience in therapy with me.

I have 25 years experience in psychotherapy with special training in couples work, family work, adoption, adolescents, and women’s reproductive health challenges, including depression and anxiety in pregnancy, infertility, miscarriage, termination, perinatal loss, postpartum depression and menopause. My training in dual degrees in verbal and non-verbal communication enables me to focus on the relationship between the mind and body. I also work frequently with expatriate and multi-cultural couples. Having lived and worked abroad for 7 years, I understand what it is like to think about where you belong, wonder how you fit in, and question whether it is possible to feel comfortable in two places at once.

10-week course, October 18,2019 to May 2020
Foundation in Family Therapy: Understanding the Magic of Connection
I am delighted to be teaching this 10-week course, along with my colleague Paula Ochs LCSW. It is designed to give clinicians, in private practice and in agencies, an understanding of the theory, practice and effectiveness of family therapy. Tuition $595, 20 clinical CEUs and 4 cultural competency CEUs.


In May 2017 the Clinical Social Work Journal published my case-study of an adolescent and her adoptive family. My work with this family allowed the child to affirm her sense of herself and her connection to her family, and demonstrated the power of therapeutic intervention in families. My approach, which I call Multi-dimensional Relational Family Therapy, focuses on subtle details of non-verbal interaction within the family. Here is a link to the article: Securing an Adolescent’s Attachment to Her Adoptive Family: The Use of Multi-dimensional Relational Family Therapy.
