Hi there, I'm Ruby!

I have been working in the mental health field, in different capacities for 20 years. My goal in therapy is to provide a safe and inspiring space. My approach is always honest and direct, but gentle and dialogic. I take into consideration my client’s internal resources at the time and want to support them in understanding their feelings and behaviors and help guide them in the journey to increased self-awareness and owned responsibility in the areas of life that have become overwhelming, with the end goal of healing and resolution. I enjoy especially working with Transitional Age Youth, but also have experience with adults and children. I have experience working with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, and stress, trauma, and schizophrenia.
