About Judith

Judith Perlman currently maintains a private practice in Highland Park and Skokie, where she specializes in integral psychotherapy with individuals, couples, families and groups. She provides clinical supervision for professionals and currently offers group therapy focusing on spirituality and integral healing.

Early in the 1970’s Judith was a certified yoga instructor while completing her university degree in psychology. She completed her graduate studies in 1980 and developed a psychotherapy practice that combined traditional western psychotherapeutic  theories with Eastern philosophy and spiritual practices.

In 1991, after relocating to Chicago, Judith joined the Cancer Wellness Center in Northbrook, and re-established her private practice. In her 13 years as part of the Center’s clinical team, Judith facilitated support groups, conducted workshops for participants and professionals, and counseled individuals, couples and families. She was the first Coordinator of Professional Education, and she later researched, developed and conducted the Center’s first Spirituality and Healing Programs.

Judith received her B.A. in Psychology in 1978 and her MSW in Social Work in 1980 from Wayne State University, Detroit Michigan. She has had postgraduate training in hypnotherapy, marital and family therapy, Emotional Field Therapy, bereavement, and end-of-life issues. She has published several articles on forgiveness in Coping Magazine and Chicago Caregivers. Judith is part of the National Cancer Survivor’s Speakers Bureau.  In 2011 and 2012 she gave presentations on Sexuality and Intimacy at the Breast Cancer Symposium at the Chicago Medical School.  She has lectured and presented workshops on issues such as resiliency, spirituality, mindfulness meditation, enneagram and the science of happiness.
