Hello, my name is Dr. Sherri Ruggiero, and I look forward to working with you to make important life changes including dealing with problems situations as well as reaching unmet potential.
I have been employed as a psychologist for a hospital in Northern Arizona for the past 7 years working with individuals on a variety of physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral concerns. Prior to that I worked in community mental health. During my early career in psychology, I was a research assistant for the Institute for Behavioral Genetics at University of Colorado – Boulder with a focus on learning disabilities and ADHD.
I am trained in a number of therapeutic interventions including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT, designed to teach mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance and relationship skills), EMDR trauma and compulsion treatment, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for the treatment of depression, anxiety and other mood and behavior management.
It is my sincere honor to work with individuals interested in making changes in their lives, and committed to evolving themselves in important ways.
