About Me

Anna M. Ruggirello LPC CGC

Hello and Welcome! I am a licensed professional counselor and certified grief counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have over 15 years of experience working with individuals and families. I have worked in a variety of settings helping my patients, and I put my clients first! I believe in providing passionate care. I am warm and compassionate. I am here to encourage you if you are facing a depressive chapter in your life. I will encourage you and treat you with care and concern. Respect is important to me, and I will make certain you are treated warmly. I will provide the attention and time you deserve!

If you are facing loss and grief, I can help you find hope. I will gently navigate you to the healing process. I can help you navigate anxious feelings to promote a sense of peace and confidence. Covid brings its own anxiety and many changes. I can help by teaching you mindfulness skills and focusing on what you need to do next. I promote finding meaning or trying to make sense of changes. I believe I can help you grow in a positive manner. I cheer and encourage all of my clients to reach their best!

I am also able to help with communication issues with family. I support a holistic approach as well as the traditional approach. We will together design a treatment to match your needs. Talking to someone about issues you are facing can be scary and intimidating. I will treat you as a unique sensitive person, and I will keep your narrative and journey confidential.

It takes courage and strength to reach out; I am here to help! I will dedicate our time to be meaningful and helpful.

I've been with Anna for a while now. This was my first time in therapy and Anna was amazing right from the start and has consistently been very helpful in her advice. She's a wonderful listener and has a great sense of humor too!

I love talking Anna. It really seems like I’m talking to a friend and she gets what I’m saying even tho I’m always all over the place. She has been so helpful in guiding me through my anxiety and guilt complex.

Written by M.A. on Jan 12, 2022 after therapy with Anna for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Anna was very receptive to discussing my concerns. Her experience was apparent and she was very helpful in formulating a treatment plan and verifying my suspicions.

Anna is a very good therapist. She's very down to earth and that makes her easy to talk to and open up with.

Anna had been super helpful! Every question I have had for her she has had a suggestion and even a solution for! You just have to put in the work as well. She will get you to drive deeper and ask yourself those uncomfortable questions you don't want to. Anna also doesn't have a biased opinion so she will see both views - yours and an outside perspective. I find this helpful because I'm set accountable to figure out what I can do to better the situation. She is also really funny and cheerful which makes her easy to talk to.
I would definitely recommend Anna to anyone. I'm glad I signed up and was paired with her.

Anna is absolutely the best. Warm, kind, and compassionate. She brings humor and a real sense of caring to every session— she listens and helps me to understand and explore why I feel the way I do and what steps I can take to steady myself. She has given me language to discuss the feelings I have and has empowered me to find solutions to some of the challenges I’m facing. So grateful to have Anna in my corner!
