Judith Vanderryn

PhD, Psychologist

Judith is a licensed Clinical Psychologist who joins the Marcus Institute from a private practice in which she treated clients recovering from traumatic stress, chronic pain, anxiety disorders, and mild traumatic brain injury.  She received her doctorate from the University of Colorado, serving her internship at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Denver, where she also completed postdoctoral training in PTSD and served as a staff psychologist on the inpatient PTSD treatment unit.  Judith has worked in a variety of settings, including consulting with community groups, wilderness therapy with people recovering from a variety of issues including addiction and traumatic stress, college counseling centers, and inpatient psychiatric and substance addiction units.  Dr. Vanderryn works closely with patients, family members, and members of the clinical team to understand the obstacles to recovery for patients – both those identified by the patient themselves and those that can be identified with careful listening and psychological evaluation measures.  Judith uses a variety of evidence based treatment modalities, including CBT, mindfulness-based practices, EMDR, and other therapies to provide integrated treatment that is tailored to the individual patient.  Outside of work, Judith is an avid runner, backcountry skier, hiker, river rafter and singer who is still adjusting to being an empty nester.​
