About Me

Hello. My name is Ruth. I've been a clinical social worker for 17 years, 13 of those years I have worked with veterans. I am a down to earth and approachable counselor. My ability to connect and relate with others is my super power. I often utilize Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness, Client Centered and Narrative therapy techniques in my counseling sessions. My favorite technique and what I speak most is human. I do not speak like a robot nor use ivy league vernacular during my counseling sessions. I am spiritual and find that I am guided during my counseling sessions with the purpose of helping others. Counseling is a journey, an often painful journey. If your stable, capable, and willing to partake in that journey, I commit to supporting you in finding ways you can make sense and cope with your experience.

I do work full time, have two magical children, and a super star husband that require my time and attention. I will respond as expeditiously as possible to messages, on the rare occasion it may take me a little bit longer to respond. If we are able to work with one another, flexibility with day and time of scheduled counseling sessions will be necessary. If you are in a mental health crisis, a counselor with more availability will be a better fit due to my time constraints. I sincerely appreciate and thank you for reading my profile. Someone once told me 'Preparation is the Best form of Spontaneity'. Counseling is a way to get yourself right and be prepared to partake in whatever blessing life throws your way.

Written by P.H. on Jan 23, 2022 after therapy with Ruth for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I cannot put into words how much Ruth has helped me over the last few months. I was in a very difficult relationship and unsure about so many things, which weighed so heavily on me. Ruth was able to very effectively, almost immediately, and consistently help me navigate the decisions I needed to make, and bring my confidence, and self-esteem back up in both a caring and encouraging way. She also made speculations about possible specific situations I may encounter that turned out to be completely accurate, which was absolutely uncanny, astounding, not to mention enormously helpful. Whether you choose Ruth on your own, or Better Help recommends her to you, I would not hesitate for a moment to work with her, and if I find myself in another difficult situation, I would reach out to her in a heartbeat.

Ruth has been absolutely brilliant. She really understands me, makes me feel safe when discussing things and has helped me understand and process my emotions in more helpful/productive ways. I am so glad that I was matched with Ruth as my therapist and couldn't imagine myself doing so well without her guidance and support.

She is very good at what she does, I feel she was able to connect with me and understand my struggles and therefore been able to help me through them.
