About Judd

I’m Judd Shaw, an adventurer, storyteller, and agent of change, inspiring people to reclaim their true selves, live authentically, and create genuine connections with others.

After a journey of self-discovery, prompted by many dark nights of the soul, I uncovered authenticity as the key to the connection I desired. Authenticity required learning how to regulate my emotions for the first time in my 40s, knowing my values and what I need to feel safe, and renewing an authentic connection with myself and others—and a lot of therapy.

The Connection CURE is a framework to guide your journey toward meeting your authentic self, understanding how and why you got where you are, aligning with your real values, and exploring the trust, respect, love, and acceptance required for connection.

I grew up facing a lot of adversity and trauma, which left me with the belief that I wasn’t good enough.

So, what did I do?

I spent years tirelessly proving my worth, desperately seeking validation, and yearning to be heard and seen. I became a master at concealing my true feelings, engaging in people-pleasing, and even turning to substance abuse to cope. My coping mechanisms, honed over years of navigating a hyper-vigilant internal system, eventually led me to a successful career as a workaholic attorney. I reached the pinnacle of my field, running my law firm and achieving #1 status in my practice area in New Jersey.

Amidst the professional success, chaos reigned in my personal life. The relentless pursuit of success and perfection took a toll on my emotional health, and I faced monumental challenges both personally and professionally. The company barely survived the upheaval of COVID-19, and my marriage didn’t make it.

I embarked on a profound journey of self-discovery, diving into mental health, trauma, inner-child work, and the power of authentic human connection. I read, I listened, I learned. I discovered the immense importance of self-love and emotional regulation, and I found the answer:


Learning to show up as myself became my compass.

Today, I am a transformed and more authentic version of myself, knowing authenticity is a journey. I’ve learned to cherish authentic human connections and feel heard, seen, and valued. I’ve learned what empathy feels like—to give and receive. I’ve experienced the joy that comes from connecting with others and bringing awareness to the critical message of connection versus disconnection. 

I want this for you, for us.

It’s not too late. You’re not too much. You’re good enough as you are. And you’re always worth it.
