Maria Ruiz LCPC


About Me

Hello, My name is Maria C Ruiz. I'd like to introduce myself as a motivating and striving individual. I personally thrive towards living a balance life and understand it is not easy. In my professional work; I collaborate, support, and encourage clients in being able to achieve the balance life they seek. We all deserve to enjoy life, be happy, and do so safely.

In my six years of counseling experience I have worked with several individuals from all walks of life. I have assisted people navigate through their healing journey from grief, whether that be from death, relationship, trauma, or other life events.

I have worked with domestic violence victims in rebuilding their life's and finding themselves again in learning to live a safe and validating life. I have also worked with perpetrators of domestic violence in helping them learn about their learned behavior towards learning to take accountability and responsibility for their chosen behavior.

I have guided people to explore their depression, anxiety, and anger for a better understanding of themselves in an effort to regain control of their lives.

I am a passionate, empathetic, energetic, and direct clinician that will provide kind, genuine, and reflective directives to walk alongside you and your ability to achieve your goals.
