Hey! I'm Elvia, a clinical social worker licensed in Utah. I have been in this field for 6 years, but have over 3 years of experience as a psychocounselor. I have worked with diverse clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, parenting, trauma, and self-esteem.
It's important to me that my clients feel respected, safe, and supported in all our interactions. I describe my counseling style as "keeping it real" and "out of the box." I believe in meeting my clients where they're at and helping them set and meet THEIR goals. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, and psychodynamic counseling.
Trust me. I get it. Seeking out support is a big step and takes a lot! You're already one step closer to meeting that goal or making a change in your life!
Let's do this! I got you!

Elvia Ruiz keeps it real. She’s relatable, she’s funny. She really tries to help and does a damn good job at it. She was one of the main highlights of my 2021 and I can’t wait to continue that in 2022.
Elvia has been a great listener and actively provides tools to help with my situation.
I only had one session with Elvia Ruiz. And, I’m impressed so far. Very helpful
I think Elvia is an amazing therapist and I am very lucky to have been matched with her as my first therapist! She’s listened to my needs and has given suitable and varied methods to work through any issues I have. Elvia responds quickly and gives really good support with what I share without any judgement. I would recommend her 100%.
She is so genuine and sweet and I’ve really been able to connect with her
Elvia is absolutely amazing and has helped me make so much progress in getting to know myself. Very kind and professional, 10/10 would recommend!
