Judith was a huge help to me when I was starting out as a producer. I had completed my first feature but was uncertain what my next steps should be. Judith certainly gave me extremely pragmatic career advice, but she also taught me how to approach my career challenges in the context of every other aspect of my life. I learned a lot from her and highly recommend her counseling to anyone working in the entertainment industry, especially those who are making career shifts or who need to figure out how to take their success to the next level.

Before coming to Judith I had enjoyed years of success but then, suddenly, everything stopped and I could not move forward no matter what I tried. After working with Judith for only a very short time, and at her recommendation based on my extensive background in the music and film industries, I embarked on a new career as a film producer. I am now shooting my first feature film and have another scheduled right behind it. I could have never done this without her clarity and assistance. Dreams do come true�I thank you, Judith Claire.
—Frank Sacco, Producer
Judith doesn't just map out career strategies. Nor does she simply exhort you to seek out your fullest potential. (Although she does both these things.) What Judith does so brilliantly is to help you find whatever personal demons are standing in the way of your success, and deal with them once and for all. The results are amazing.
—Dolly Gordon, Screenwriter; Script Consultant
Judith helped me advance to the next stage of my career. With humor and insight, she gave me tools that I find to be very effective in both my personal and professional life. Warm, caring and gifted, Judith is more than a counselor - she is a friend.

In the beginning of my career (before I actually had one), Judith worked with me on getting started. She provided guidance on how the entertainment business works, basic networking principles, what my most saleable assets were and how best to market myself. Judith's knowledge and advice proved invaluable. Within months of our first sessions, I got my first industry directing job. Honest!!
Over the years as I moved ahead in my career, I have continued to seek Judith's help when some difficult, confusing or thorny career issue rears its head. And I will continue to do so. Judith knows show biz. And she has that rare gift for really understanding the human capacity to dream big. Judith has done nothing less than inspire me to achieve my dreams.
—Nancy Gimbrone, Supervising Producer, Writer/Director for The History Channel, A&E, TLC, NBC
Judith Claire has that uncanny ability to see beyond the fog and chaos and define a clear, manageable path to truth and growth.

Judith Claire has created the perfect balance and is a constant voice of wisdom, sanity and genuine encouragement.
