Remembering Judy Fiermonte

Judy Fiermonte served as an Advisory Board Member, consultant, and supporter of LifeWorks since its founding over 20 years ago. Judy passed away after a recent diagnosis of cancer on June 29th.

Judy was a well-respected and even beloved Marriage and Family Therapist in Santa Rosa for the past 40 years. She was best known for her work with traumatized and special needs children and their parents. Like LifeWorks, she was dedicated to working for healthy parent-child relationships. she leaves a legacy of professional excellence and dedication and was a friend and mentor to her colleagues and certainly to our LifeWorks staff and Board of Directors. Her thoughtful, kind, and lively spirit nwill be remembered by all who knew her.

LifeWorks sends our condolences and love to her family, friends, and the many clients she has served in this community.
