About Me

Judy Belmont

I am a mental health author and motivational speaker on a variety of personal, emotional and workplace wellness topics.

After 40 years of working as a psychotherapist, I now offer mental health coaching via phone and Skype. I enjoy leading interactive presentations and trainings.

I am the author of 7 mental health and wellness books. My books offer therapists and their clients, as well as self-help readers, practical solutions to deal with common problems such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety and relationship issues.

Embrace Your Greatness: 50 Ways to Build Unshakable Self-Esteem (New Harbinger) offers 50 practical ways to love yourself to love your life. The Anxiety and Stress Solution Deck published by mental health publisher PESI offers 55 quick and effective tips & tools to relieve stress and calm anxiety. Each card features a short Tips, followed by a Tool, or short activity to put that Tip into practice.

Also published by PESI is my four book “Tips and Tools for the Therapeutic Toolbox” series, offering counseling worksheets, psycho-educational handouts, worksheets, activities and visualizations to improve communication, stay positive, think more rationally, develop more self-compassion and mindfulness, and improve stress management skills. The focus of my books, coaching and presentations are based on widely accepted therapeutic modalities, primarily CBT, DBT, ACT and Positive Psychology.

I am also a WW Norton author (The Therapist’s Ultimate Solution Book)

I have an MS in Clinical Psychology from Hahnemann Medical College, and hold a BS in Psychology from University of Pennsylvania. I currently live in Naples, Florida and South Jersey.
