Ann Judge, PhD
Dr. Judge earned her MA and PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park. After completing her clinical internship at The George Washington University (GWU) Counseling Center in 1997, she was a Staff Psychologist at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She then returned to GWU as a staff psychologist, after which she became the Training Director for the University Counseling Center’s externship program, post-doctoral clinical fellowship program, and clinical internship program that was accredited by the American Psychological Association. While serving as the Training Director, she also assumed the role of the Senior Associate Director of the University Counseling Center at GWU. In this role, she supervised the clinical staff and coordinated the Counseling Center’s response to critical incidents on campus.
While at GWU and following her tenure there, Dr. Judge maintained a private practice in Psychology in both the District of Columbia and Annapolis, MD. Her training, work experience, and interest in working with college-aged students is what brought her back to a counseling center environment at the USNA.
Dr. Judge has been an active Board Member with Division 29 of the American Psychological Association (the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy), most recently serving two terms as the Domain Representative for Membership. In that role, she chaired the Division 29 Task Force on Telepsychotherapy. She has training, clinical interest, and expertise in working with clients with eating disorders and eating disordered behaviors. Other professional interests include stress and anxiety management, self-care, managing life transitions, relationship issues, college student development, anger management, and clinical supervision of psychologists in training. Her clinical style is an integrative combination of interpersonal/relational, emotion-focused, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. She is also an active and engaging speaker who enjoys outreach programming as much as clinical work.
