Ruth Hagemann , LPC
Hello! I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia with over 15 years of experience. I have had the privilege to work with a diverse population and in a variety of settings which include a university counseling center, community mental health, and a residential facility. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, career issues, relationship issues (family conflict, partner conflict, trust issues & poor communication), trauma (sexual assault, domestic & emotional abuse), self-confidence, self-acceptance, and LGBT issues.
My counseling style is personable, compassionate, and non-judgemental. I will always show empathy, respect, understanding and support. I typically use a person-centered approach combined with cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution focused. I also use a strengths-based and positive psychology approach when working with individuals. Together, we would work to develop a plan that is tailored to your individual needs and goals.
Life can sometimes leave us feeling stressed and uncertain. You are not alone on your journey. I greatly appreciate the courage required to seek support for a more fulfilling life. Change can be scary but it can also be wonderfully empowering. If you are ready to explore what has held you from experiencing life more fully, I am here to support and empower your efforts and I look forward to working with you!

Ruth is so empathetic and she really knows how to listen and open me up. She is very encouraging and being able to receive her counseling sessions truly has been helping me over the past year to realize what good things I actually deserve in life and getting past some very tragic events.
