Dr. Tsafrir has been a tremendous help to me since I have started seeing her regularly. I had suffered from a variety of issues ranging from anxiety/depression, extremely poor diet and mild alcoholism. She was able to keep me in check when overcoming these bad habits and replace them with healthier, more natural choices. An example would be that I was on heavy medication when I should have been taking certain vitamins to combat a chemical imbalance in my blood rather than endure the harmful chemicals in the medication which now I believe was making things worse. I would have continued with the medication if she hadn’t recommended that I take a specific blood test to see if there was a problem there. I feel much better now and am able to lead a more balanced lifestyle.

Dr Judy is one of those rare health care professionals who is truly committed to your well being and health. She is more than open to exploring other modalities and techniques in the pursuit of wellness and recovery. Constantly stays in touch, always seeking answers to your needs. Hard to find a practitioner that is willing to push the boundaries of her profession like she does.
I have been dealing with mental illness for 18 years. I have gone through 8 psychiatrists, 4 coaches and psychologists, 8 psychiatric meds, 7 hospitalizations and 3 diagnoses in my search to feel better. I was fortunate enough to find Dr Tsafrir when looking for a holistic psychiatrist.
Dr Tsafrir prescribed a regimen that was very different from how I had been living. I went on the Paleo Diet, eliminated all grains, gluten, dairy and alcohol from my diet. Dr Tsafrir also introduced me to the work of Dr William Walsh, a pioneer in the treatment of mental disorders using nutrient therapy.
My results from this regimen and the nutritional supplements have been remarkable. My sleep has normalized, I have dropped 25 lbs, and my mental functioning has dramatically improved. Dr Tsafrir has literally changed my life.
Dr Tsafrir is also kind, compassionate and caring after the clinical approach of some of my psychiatrists. I truly look forward to the time we spend together each month.
I have known Dr Tsafrir for many years. She is an accomplished psychotherapist, and a wonderful, warm human being. She will help you discover your hidden truths, as most therapists do, but Dr Tsafrir goes about it in a unique way, which also yeilds unique results. If I had to change therapists now I would find another holistic psychotherapist. I would not settle for anything less. But I doubt I would find anyone as dedicated to healing their patient as Dr Tsafrir. I doubt I would find anyone as brave and cutting edge, as willing to reconsider the information they learned in their fundamental medical training, as she is.
Dr Tsafrir is actively pursuing the truth about who we are and how we work and continuously educating herself about healing through diet and supplements, and anything and everything else which she deems useful to her patients. More than just mainly a vow to stay updated as a medical professional, it seems to be a lifestyle. A passion. This has been very beneficial to me, as I have made changes based on her guidance that have completely changed my life.
I hope more medical professionals will follow in her footsteps and help bring forth profound change in people’s lives with the holistic method, the way she has in mine. I am inspired to help other people in return for the life I am now able to lead thanks to Dr Tsafrir’s help.
I am eternally grateful.
Dr. Tsafrir has been a life saver. After struggling for over 20 years with depression, bipolar, food sensitivities, and general mind/body/spirit imbalance, Dr. Tsafrir is helping me find significant relief. She is the trifecta of doctor-ness: adept, responsive, and nurturing. Not only do I feel like I’m coming back to myself after many years, but my family has noticed a big difference in my moods. My 7 year-old daughter said, “Mommy, you are so much for fun now and you yell so much less!” Dr. Tsafrir has helped me with medications, nutrient/vitamin system balance, food/diet, and spiritual connectedness. I highly recommend Dr. Tsafrir.
