Ruthie's is very professional and understanding of your needs; she strategically figures out ways to help you with whatever concerns you are having in your life.
Ruthie is the best therapist I've had. She is patient and kind, but also she asks the right questions which challenge your ruminations and break the cycle. I love meeting for therapy every week with Ruthie and feel I am finally on the right track with my mental health for the first time in years.
Ruthie is everything I hoped a good therapist would be. She is patient, caring, extremely validating, she recommends the perfect book for wherever you are in your self healing journey, and she points out flaws in negative patterns of thinking. Every week I come out of our session feeling proud of the progress we made and looking forward to our next session together!
I have a strong connection with my therapist. She understand me and help me work through whatever I’m dealing with.
I love her! She's always understanding, I never feel like I'm being judged or looked down on. Talking to her is easy and comfortable. She's made things easier for me to move forward in my healing process and I couldn't have asked for a better theraphist. She is absolutely amazing!
Ruthie has understood what my main concerns were from the start and has been helping me ever since. I'm more able to manage my anxiety and accept it when it happens. Ruthie always sends nice messages and quotes in between sessions, which are always appreciated. Could not recommend her enough!
Ruthie has been phenomenal and I feel that she takes the time to understand not just me but the issues I face. She works with me on allowing me to see different perspectives and has helped my relationship grow with my spouse.
I know I still have a long way to go, but thanks to Ruthie my marriage is thriving and I could not be happier.
Ruthie is such a joy. She is very understanding and always finds way to make me feel that everything is going to be okay. Anyone who has a chance to talk to Ruthie should know that they’re in great hands!
Ruthie is always willing to listen and is also extremely understanding. Her tranquillity always makes me feel at ease during sessions.
Ruthie is wonderful. She is patient, warm, and kind. She offers practical tools and has a wide variety of approaches if one technique isn’t resonating. She is very skilled and I’ve benefited greatly from her expertise. I’d highly recommend Ruthie.
Ruthie has been so helpful to me in this journey of self-discovery. She's been very patient and kind with me as I work through my issues. During our sessions, she's always maintained a positive, nurturing attitude, which I really appreciate.
Ruthie's calm demeanor and wealth of knowledge has been so helpful for me in my journey of figuring out coping mechanisms for my anxiety. She's thoughtful and inquisitive while also allowing the session to be centered around what the client needs. I'm so glad I was able to be paired with her.
Ruthie is so down to earth, humble and knowledgeable. I enjoy working with her and appreciate all she has done for me thus far!
I am so happy I got paired with Ruthie Brooks. My sessions with her have been a positive and insightful experience. She provided me with worksheets and shared valuable knowledge that helped me get closer to my goals each week. As a result, I can see my relationships improving and I have a better understanding of myself. She is very professional, kind, and great at what she does.
Ruthie is incredibly patient and helpful. She listens when I feel like I need to just talk, and offers concrete strategies for how to move forward in what I’m struggling with. When I feel like I don’t want to do something about my issue, she keeps pushing me to think about the next step so I’m not stuck. I’d recommend Ruthie to anyone who’s having a hard time and wants a warm and pragmatic ear.
Its great. More effort on original matching would be great.
So far, my experience has been excellent. Ruthie is a compassionate listener and is very good at extracting the key issues from our conversations. Her advice has been very useful and I am always feeling much better after speaking with her. I also really like the online format. Strangely enough, it feels more relaxing and makes it easier for me to reflect on the essential rather than the anecdotal or circumstantial.
We've had a few weeks of sessions and Ruthie has been very supportive and insightful in guiding towards a sense of confidence from a place of helplessness. I look forward to more sessions.
Great counseling and input has really helped me reach my goals
Ruthie is a wonderful counselor. She is a great listener and her feedback has helped me greatly in my journey of self healing. I highly recommend her :)
Ruthie has brought a significant impact to my mental health in just two short weeks. I found her to be understanding, kind, and a great listener. Together we discovered the root of many of my problems and developed the best strategies to move on. I would recommend Ruthie to anyone.
I think BetterHelp matched me well, with Ruthie as my counsellor. We have only been chatting for a couple of months but already I hardly recognise myself, I have made so many improvements in my life. It’s like I am getting the ‘real me’ back again. I don’t know how Ruthie does it, as she is very gentle, but it has worked very well for me so far.
I love Ruthie. She is gentle and lets me explore my issues as she guides me to understanding past traumas in order to move forward in my life.
I always feel like Ruthie listens to my concerns and is very empathetic. She responds to my messages very quickly, and is always there when I need advice.
She has been extremely helpful and nice and I really like talking to her
