Judith Sadora, MA, LMFT

Therapist at Cascades

Judith has worked with those who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, racial identity, substance abuse, attachment, suicide or self-harm, and process addictions (i.e video games, technology). Judith has the ability to find and help develop strengths that each individual and family possess. She then builds on these strengths to help families create new patterns of individual and relational success. She works to create change and build healthy perspectives and attachments in teens that strengthen family and parent/child relationships.

Judith’s strengths involve identifying cultural/racial differences and contextual factors in families and providing psychoeducation for parents in regards to adolescent and racial identity development as it relates to the family. Judith views trauma as a cross-cultural experience, although it presents differently among cultures, nonetheless she believes it is what makes us similar within humanity. Judith carries a trauma and attachment informed lens with most of her clients, while still providing individualized treatment. As a woman of faith, Judith integrates spirituality and Christian teachings into the work she does with those who identify themselves as Christian.

Education & Prior Work Experience

Judith, a Haitian-American, is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oregon. She completed her master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy and is currently in a Doctoral program for Marriage and Family Therapy with a primary focus in therapeutic programs as it relates to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI). She received further education at Portland State University to provide therapy for the foster care and adoption population. She has experience working with individuals, families, couples, and parent/child dynamics, and specializes in working with adoptive families, especially within transracial adoption.

When Judith is not out in the field working with clients, she is working as a lead therapist for the Evoke Intensives, providing individual therapy for adults in multi-day intensives. As part of her niche in supporting and leading Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion initiatives in the industry, Judith is currently Co-Chair of the NATSAP Diversity and Inclusion Committee, part of the Diversity Committee at Evoke, and leading health and wellness programs for the black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) communities at the Evoke Intensives with a team of BIPOC professionals

Prior to joining the Evoke team, Judith worked with adolescents as a Middle School Counselor and at a Residential Treatment Center in Nevada. Judith is a family therapist who has experience facilitating family and parenting workshops while also balancing a full caseload.

Strengths

Judith’s hope is to help change and build healthy perspectives towards self, others, and life’s challenges. She encourages her students through her work, to think for themselves and embark on a journey towards self-understanding and self-actualization by constructing their own narrative that promotes health. Judith's passion for primarily working in an outdoor therapeutic environment is driven by her belief that nature provides opportunities that motivate individuals towards health in their mind, body, and spirit journey. 

Interests

Judith lives with her husband in Redmond, Oregon and when she is not working, she enjoys outdoor adventures such as camping, hiking, backpacking, and kayaking with her husband and their dog, Buffy. Judith enjoys spending hours in her vegetable garden and doing home projects with her family. Judith and her husband are also connected to their home church and enjoy finding ways to support their family.
