Life Coaching

Judy, a life coach, working with a client

"My life and work are much fuller, more satisfying and successful because of working with Dr. Underwood. Doing so has enabled me to move forward more intelligently and gracefully with insight and tools to take into every part of my life."
- PR manager for global high-tech corporation

Put simply, people matter. Dr. Judy Underwood's life coaching practice revolves around this fundamental assumption: that you—your ambitions, your challenges, your inspirations—matter greatly.

Working with Judy on what matters in your life, you will experience deep listening that hears beneath the words. You'll benefit from her active curiosity and her insightful ability to zero in quickly on issues and themes in your life, honed from her years as a university professor and a psychotherapist. You'll feel the nonjudgmental acceptance of where you are now and the goal-oriented support of where you want to be. You'll receive the knowledge that comes when she immerses herself in whatever topic is important to you.

As one client succinctly put it, "With Judy, you get a lot for your money!"

Here are a few themes you might explore:

  • Balance
    Finding a healthful balance between work, family and self is more challenging than ever today. Judy helps you make sure all parts of your life get the attention they need.
  • Fulfillment
    What makes your life worth living? Do you dare to discover your passion? Judy helps you figure out what you really want and how to get it. She helps you define and live by your values, learn how to say "No," and bring meaning and purposefulness to your everyday life.
  • Movement
    Feeling stuck and overwhelmed often indicates the need to go deeper into feelings in order to move through them. Judy helps you work through your feelings and take actions so you can not just live, but thrive.

The Benefits of Life Coaching

Life coaching can help you create and achieve your goals with a focus on career, personal life or both. It is an excellent opportunity to focus on yourself and learn new tools to improve your life.

Life coaching is especially beneficial if you are future oriented and committed to working on your goals in between sessions. Dr. Judy Underwood, Life Coach at Blue Spruce Counseling, is happy to help you.


The initial two-hour intake session costs $650. Subsequently most clients commit to a six-month plan for $650 per month with payments due on the first of each month.
