About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My years of experience comes from a variety of settings: outpatient treatment institutions, inpatient treatment institutions, and community based settings which have included one on one sessions. I utilize the following therapeutic approaches: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, solution-focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Strength based therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Mindfulness. I have training and experiences working with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, anger issues, and addiction.

Everyone has their own narratives/perspectives and I understand it can be challenging to be vulnerable with your thoughts and emotions but the reward of validating yourself can be most healing. I am confident I can teach you to identify and validate your emotions in a healthy manner. I can help and/or be that listening ear. Change is possible when you are willing to make a commitment to the process. I challenge you to be open minded and be courageous with me....

When I’m most overwhelmed Rhiannon is able to help me see through the smokescreens of my mind and see where I’m standing clearly. She helps me make decisions based on what’s in my heart rather than fear based one’s. I’ve learned coping skills so far that I’m working on to overcome personal challenges. I’m happy with the help she’s providing me.

Rhiannon is awesome! I really enjoy our sessions together, she is a great listener and provides great advice. I value her advice because she helps me see things from an outside perspective and she also brings humor into it (which I enjoy).

I haven’t wanted to participate in therapy in many years because I didn’t think my therapist really listened. Since speaking to Rhiannon this has changed my entire outlook and now I see what I was missing by not. But I guess it took her expertise to get me out of my shell of speaking to others about the things I needed to. Thank you for everything you’ve helped me accomplish this far.

Dr. Cruz is absolutely amazing! I was nervous about changing therapists but once I did I instantly knew it was the right decision. She has helped me grow so much in such a short time. Excited for the future!

I really appreciate Rhiannon because she's helping me get through this really hard time in my life. Thank you!! I was referred to Better Help from both a friend and a family member. I'm grateful for this support!

I appreciate that she is a great listener. I vent a lot, and she is there to comfort, and also give calming advice.
