Judith Gusky, LPC

Judith Gusky is a licensed professional clinical mental health counselor and therapist (LPC) in Pittsburgh. She came to counseling as a mid-life career change. She brings a lifetime of experiences, challenges, and insight to her work with a diverse clientele. In 2013, Judith took a leap of faith and put into motion a new "integrative" model providing both traditional and alternative therapies for better mental health. Along with the switch came a new business name, Pittsburgh Integrative Mental Health (PIMH). At PIMH Judith is able to provide alternative therapies and a broad range of specialized options for treatment of mind, body, and spirit.

Client Feedback:

Great thanks to Emmanuel. He has not just healed me with his spirit but he gave my soul a chance to reconceive my existence in this world, to see myself from a different perspective. His hands, his mind and… I don’t know what else create miracles. Once again, great thanks to Emmanuel.
