Dr. Judy Ho, Clinical & Forensic Neuropsychologist

“My drive comes from wanting to have as much positive impact in the world as I can while I am here.”

Dr. Judy Ho

Dr. Judy Ho, a Licensed Clinical & Forensic Neuropsychologist, shared the story behind her title with us on May 3, 2023.

Dr. Judy is a triple board certified and licensed Clinical and Forensic Neuropsychologist, a tenured Associate Professor at Pepperdine University, and published author, most recently penning Stop Self-Sabotage, published by HarperCollins; a book detailing a scientifically driven six-step program which has been translated into 7 additional languages around the world.

Dr. Judy maintains a private practice in Manhattan Beach, CA where she specializes in comprehensive neuropsychological assessments and expert witness work.

She is skilled at working with individuals of all ages struggling with complex mental health, cognitive, and substance abuse concerns, including severe mood and anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress, psychotic illnesses, developmental disorders, neurocognitive disorders, personality disorders, specialized forensic issues, and lesser known clinical conditions. She uses a scientifically-driven and highly individualized approach with each patient to ensure accurate diagnoses and the development of a well-rounded treatment plan to help them recover and live their best lives.


Judy was born in Taiwan and moved to the U.S. when she was 9 years old. She describes her grandmother as her saviour growing up for her love and support while her parents were working.  Her first interest in psychology came from an opportunity she had to mentor a little girl in foster care while volunteering for the Boys and Girls Club. Both of these experiences as well as her own innate optimism is tied directly to her success today.
