She has a Ph.D. in health and human services, an M.A. in clinical psychology, and additional training in bioenergetics, trauma recovery, yoga therapy, and shamanism.

"Rather than presenting an esoteric borrowing from Indian culture,
Judith employs the metaphoric language of the chakra system within
the context of modern psychology. Her clear organization and
numerous charts make browsing for subjects of personal relevance a
breeze, and her comparison of the various maps of psychological
development (Freudian, Piagetian, Eriksonian, Reichian, and others)
is intriguing. The book provides a useful tool for contemplating
our strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate approaches to
". . . [S]parkles with insight. Spiritual seeker, client, and therapist alike will find treasures here."
