About me

Thank you for stopping by! My name is Ruthie Brooks. It takes courage to reach out to a complete stranger for help with your personal journey. We all have moments in life that we need guidance and support to get through life struggles.

I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Psychology and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.

I work with clients seeking help with stress management, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, anger management, low self-esteem, OCD, and substance abuse. I have over 15 years of experience in the mental health profession.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, reality therapy, motivational interviewing, exposure-response prevention, and solution-focused and techniques and strategies.

I will offer needed guidance and support without judgment. I will assist in empowering you with the skills, strategies, and resources to reach your goals and achieve an optimal level of functioning. The greatest form of courage and strength is making the first step and seeking assistance.

Ruthie is an incredible therapist. She is always empathetic to what I'm going through. Our work together has had a tremendously positive impact on my mental health. She provides great guidance and shares resources I can do outside of our sessions. I would recommend Ruthie to anyone who is dealing with loss, grief or depression.
