Ruth Diaz

(LPC, Psy.D.)

About Me

Hello. My name is Ruth. My clients have often described working with me as feeling like they are having a really interesting conversation, but when they walk away from their time together with me, they see their world differently, and then notice that things begin to change in amazing and new ways. I work as a Gestalt Relational therapist. This means that I believe that all of your different experiences and parts of who you are always changing and transforming. With the right kind of support, you will find your way to deepening the connections you want to grow more of in your life and distancing the ones that feel unhealthy.

You might be feeling stuck in your life, or unable to be present with the things you believe you should feel happy about. You might wish that you could be more outgoing or take better care of yourself, and you might be looking for a sense of calling or purpose in your career. Maybe you're just mad at your significant other or a friend that you used to feel very close too. Whatever the discomfort, I believe that the relationship we can build together will assist you in creating more of what you want in your life. I have worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I also have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

Whether you chose to work with me or someone else on this site, my advice is the same: Trust your gut. It is easy to become intimidated by a mental health professional and believe that they know better. After 10 years experience working in mental health, believe me when I say that you are the expert on you, and you will know if a connection with a therapist is growing you, or ultimately just confusing and disorienting. Whatever you chose, I wish you well on your journey.

-Ruth

Ruth has helped me resolve issues from building up and was a great person to talk to. Never without useful advice and visualizations. Our relationship didn't feel like therapy but more like healing. After a month with Ruth I can say that I would recommend anyone who has problems to seek her out.

Ruth Diaz is one of the most compassionate therapist I have had the pleasure of being associated with. She listens. She is empathetic. She gives you a variety of tools to work with to help. I can't thank her enough for her time and expertise...

Ruth has played a major role in helping me overcome current struggles I have been battling for years! Not only do I value her expertise, but the fact I look forward to connecting with her every week says a lot for me. I'd highly recommend Ruth and feel blessed I've had the opportunity to work with her! Thanks again.

Ruth is really great at sharing practical advice in a broadly applicable way. I have always felt heard talking to her, and I can tell that she has a deep respect for my concerns and well-being. Overall I feel much much better in thinking and acting for myself in the real world because I know I can lean on my latest insight I got from a session with her, and that if I screw something up, it will be an opportunity to learn more about myself with her advice later. She is an extremely approachable expert. I solidly recommend Ruth, I've worked with a number of professionals over the years and Ruth is a standout.

4 Months in and I've experienced encouraging results. I don't totally understand the process but Ruth makes it easy to work through it, answers my questions and subtly leads me to the places I need to go. Highly recommended

Ruth has an excellent professional acumen. She is extremely knowledgeable in her area of expertise. She offers wonderful insights and fascinating perspectives. She demonstrates a strong psychological background. I'd recommend her to those who have similar backgrounds in that she speaks very intelligently.

Ruth's been very helpful in exploring my thoughts and sort out my emotions with her expertise and experience. I like how she makes me think out of the box and understand more about the wonder of human emotions and psychology. I will recommend Ruth to people who would like to explore the new world for themselves.

I have been completely blown away with my experience with Ruth Diaz and BetterHelp. Ruth is amazing. I have received messages and communications at almost every hour of the day. She has proven to me that she actually cares about me as a person and genuinely wants to help me get better. My anxiety is already much better after only a couple of weeks of working with her.
