About Me

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!

She’s the best. She listens very well and helps me deal with my stresses in a healthy and productive manner. Never judgmental and helps bring a new perspective to the table.

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.

Ruth is so supportive and a great listener. She offers helpful guidance for all of my issues, and asks thought provoking questions. I always feel better after talking with her!

Ruth is wonderful! She listens carefully and hit the nail on the head every time we talk! I’m thrilled that I found her!

Ruth is incredibly supportive and creates an environment where I don't feel judged. She responds quickly to messages and makes me feel validated while also helping me realize a different perspective. I know when I need comforting or advice, Ruth is there with a kind word or excellent worksheet.

Thanks so much for your continued contact and support.

Written by E.U. on Mar 25, 2020 after therapy with Ruth for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes

I was pretty skeptic about starting therapy and even more skeptical about doing this via an app. Once I met Ruth, I instantly clicked with her and felt heard and supported. She’s helped me so much during our time working together and I am so happy I took the steps to reach out for a little extra help!

I have a great connection with Ruth. I've made bigger strides in conquering my personal struggles since speaking with her. I am truly excited for our weekly sessions.

Written by L.O. on Nov 08, 2019 after therapy with Ruth for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

So far, I've had an incredibly positive experience with Ruth. Ive had therapists before and have not felt like it was a good match almost instantly, but I feel very supported by Ruth and I like her counseling style. I definitely feel it has helped me.

Written by K.R. on Sep 23, 2019 after therapy with Ruth for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

Ruth is so patient and understanding. I feel that I'm able to tell her anything without the fear of being judged. She listens like none other and then offers solutions that I can implement right away. I really love working with her.

Written by B.A. on Sep 16, 2019 after therapy with Ruth for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and anger management

Ruth is my first experience with counseling and I really love how patient and understanding she is. It's clear that she has a lot of experience and I find myself trusting her and talking to her about things I haven't shared with anyone else! She is awesome!

It’s only been a short while, but Ruth has already helped me so much. I already feel more confident in myself and in my surroundings. I came to her with many issues, and she has not been unable to deal with a single one. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs somebody to listen.

I was most impressed and appreciative with my counselor’s timely response. When I needed to speak to someone the most, Ms. Hagemann actually took time out of her busy Sunday schedule to send a message to me, in an effort to let me know she was there for me. I could not ask for more then that.

She is good in everyway

Written by B.R. on Aug 26, 2018 after therapy with Ruth for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and parenting

After a few conversations on chat and one phone session, I can already tell she is great at what she does and this is definitely her calling. Before talking to her, I was a wreck but after she listened to me rant about all my problems, she offered some great advice and I felt so much better following it. Ill have another phone appt tomorrow with her and im looking forward to it! Thank you, Ruth! Its people like you that make the world a better place! ❤️
