About Judy Petrushka

As a therapist I believe in providing a safe space where my clients can feel seen, heard and understood. They may be feeling overwhelmed or stuck, or the circumstances of their lives feel beyond their ability to cope. Maybe the concerns center around a child. My experience as a counselor at a sexual assault crisis center, a domestic violence agency, and the behavioral health group in a hospital has demonstrated the strong connection between relational trauma and mental and physical health. I utilize a client-centered, strengths-based approach and employ a variety of evidence-based treatments depending on my client’s unique circumstances, including EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. I may use therapies to allow them to experience a positive change in thoughts and beliefs and reduce intrusive images and associated body sensations. Expressive therapies in art or play can help explore feelings and experiences in ways that words can’t, to gain insights into a path forward. I have specialized training for the treatment for children under 6 that have experienced at least one traumatic event. This can help support and strengthen the child/parent relationship and help improve the child’s cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning. I feel privileged to meet my clients where they are, understand them as a whole person, and bring an open, non-judgmental, and calm approach to their treatment. I work with children, adolescents, adults and families, and see clients in the Glen Ellyn office.”
