About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California with over 10 years of experience working as a therapist. I have experience with a variety of issues including mood disorders, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, anxiety and career challenges.
My counseling style encourages a strong rapport and providing the individual with empathy, sensitivity and insight to the issue presented. My approach combines solution focused and cognitive behavioral to deal with present day issues. I rely on a psychodynamic approach when there is a need to understand the patterns of distorted thinking or negative behaviors. I focus on modifying treatment to meet the individuals unique needs.

Everyone deserves unbiased support in coping with difficult issues. Together we can improve the quality of your relationships and experience joy that may have been lost while struggling with your issue..

I look forward to hearing from you.

I was matched with Ruby after I registered. She has been a great help for me during a difficult time. I was barely functioning as I was dealing with anxiety and depression. I found that I could open up to her and I appreciate her professional manner. I found her to be compassionate and non-judgemental, which made my counseling more effective for my healing process. Her suggestions have been great for my anxiety and the best thing is that now I am focused on me and taking better care of myself. I would definitely recommend her!

Ruby has been very helpful and insightful. I'm sure she has been getting to know me by reading between the lines, too. I appreciate her response time and she keeps me informed when she will be busy for a little while. She has been helping me in many ways and a very good sounding board.... knowledgeable.

Ruby was thorough and made sure to check up on me, even when I wasn't as responsive. I would definitely recommend her.

Ruby has helped me tremendously and is worth her weight in gold. The mind is a powerful thing and she’s got me in a much better frame of thinking than prior to working with her. She listens and give strong, blunt advice which I appreciate. She will be honest with you, she is quick to respond and punctual, and is able to tell you things that are sometimes hard to hear in a respectful manner. Thank you Ruby and thank you BetterHelp, you are a pleasure to work with.

My partner and I have only had three sessions with Ruby so far but the dynamic of our relationship has improved tremendously. Our communication has improved. We are developing more compassion, understanding and learning how to work together. It's been great working with Ruby. Looking forward to continuing our growth with her.

I am brand new to online therapy, and wish I would've discovered it sooner! My counselor, Ruby, has been a Godsend in my journey of healing. She has been available to me 24/7. She offers suggestions or ideas to keep me moving forward. I find my sessions with Ruby have been far more valuable than any face to face counseling I've had in the past! Many thanks to Ruby and BetterHelp for their services!
