My Story


My Story

 

I am from a small town called Murfreesboro Tennessee.

Like most kids from small towns, I was bored and found trouble, which at the age of 12 landed me on the front gates of Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, Virginia. At first, I cried myself to sleep each night. Gradually, I discovered that I was part of a brotherhood guided by faculty that were dedicated to making dreams become a reality. 

It was in this discovery that something miraculous happened; something changed in me that had a lifelong impact. 

"It was then that I knew I would dedicate my life to helping others accomplish their goals."

I accomplished one of my first dreams by becoming a walk-on running back for the University of Colorado’s Big XII Championship team. After multiple surgeries and concussions, I was beaten down. I felt like I was right back where I started, still that scared little kid that didn't know what to do next. 

But as I began to realize that I was already living in one of the greatest cities on earth for healing the Mind, Body, and Spirit, the weight slowly lifted.

Today, Boulder, CO is still my home and the foundation for Dr. Judd Institute’s global mission to help others heal themselves in mind and body.

Who I've Helped

I work with athletes across all competitive levels, including high school, college, professional, and elite (i.e., Olympic). Locally, the scope of my practice starts with student-athletes at Boulder High and Fairview where I’ve had the honor of coaching  with Coach Tom McCartney.

Mind & Body

I provide student-athletes with the mentorship and overall support that I desperately required as a collegiate athlete. My methods of counseling ensure that athletes not only remain balanced and empowered to fulfill their goals, but are also able to overcome injuries and are mentally prepared for any obstacles along the way.

Optimized Adults

I also work with fitness-minded, driven adults who want to improve their athletic performance and are open to a holistic approach to mind-body wellness.

The words of Coach Johns have always resonated with me from high school throughout my professional career as a musician. He would always say, “Don’t just count your reps in the gym or the minutes on the clock … make every rep, every minute count!” I am honored to call coach a lifelong mentor.

What would you do in life if no one gave you credit?

Dr Judd Life Adventure

Goals

The goal in our work together is for you to fulfil your dreams. We accomplish this by helping you live a life based on self-acceptance, remaining authentic to who you are, and loving yourself. Only then can you truly live out your highest potential.

Acceptance

We have been taught that the acceptance of others is critical, an unfortunate mindset that forces us to depend on friends, family, and everyone around us to be okay. There is a world of possibilities that opens up when we fully accept ourselves without the validation of others. 

 

"Great dreams have to be your dreams and no one else's."
- Dr. Judd Johns

 

I don't just talk this mindset or study these methods...

I live them, and I require my patients to keep me accountable as well. Unfortunately, very few mental health professionals seem to lead a healthy life in both mind and body.

I took on a holistic approach to living and became conscious of what was sourcing my decisions in life. I challenge you to do the same. Most patients that enter my office do not do so on a winning streak.

Physical and emotional pain is trying to teach you a lesson, and I am here to help you not only feel better, but to become better in Mind, Body, and Spirit.

As you see in the diagram below I have had a myriad of injuries throughout my athletic career. These injuries were a wake-up call from the pain teacher that were complemented by unresolved emotional pain as well.



 

Mental and physical pain must be treated synonymously because emotional pain will always manifest itself in physical symptoms and visa versa. 

 

First, when you are injured you experience grief because you have lost a piece of your health. 

Second, every athlete that I counsel has had some sort of unresolved emotional pain (e.g. parents divorce, financial strain) that can be traced back prior to an injury.

 

Only when we start to connect to what are bodies are teaching us can we perform at our highest level and become pain free.

Mind

I'm all about self-acceptance that leads to self-love. We will focus on no longer allowing guilt, shame, or fear to motivate your life.

I've never witnessed a healthy change occur from being trapped in a cycle of guilt. Most of us have been programed to think that the only way to accomplish your dreams is to measure yourself against others.

Once this foundation is set, your dreams are no longer yours; once you become dependent on others to approve of your life or your decisions to “feel good,” you are no longer living an authentic life.


Body

Body work begins by taking into account that what we put into our bodies (e.g.,whole organic, non-gmo foods), how we exercise, and how we rest our physical bodies are fundamental to providing the energy we need to pursue our dreams.

We will begin our work together by increasing your unbound play. When was the last time you made time for that hike, picked up that guitar, paintbrush, or simply got out in nature? We can become so bogged down with trying to get ahead in life that we never make time to do the little things that help us remained balanced.


Spirit

Our spirit work together focuses on you being your most genuine, authentic self to provide a sense of purpose and perspective.  

We must become conscious of what's sourcing our decisions in life. Is it fear or love? (If you have to ask, then it's probably fear). Are you more concerned with what others might think about your decisions? If so, then there is a lack of authenticity that can manifest in some pretty unhealthy ways.


A healthier road to your goals
 

Our work together will be to slowly break down negative talk while balancing out your mind and body so we see your dreams accomplished together.

After completing a detailed in office assessment that targets the major areas in your life that require balance, we will come up with “action items” that need to be integrated into your daily schedule.

In addition to our weekly sessions, I make myself available for periodic check-ins (10 to 20 minute phone sessions) throughout the week to ensure these action items are making a positive change in your life.
