My Approach to Helping

Ruth is a psychotherapist with over ten years of experience facilitating transitions and growth. She is a firm believer that each one of us has the answers to our problems but we may need a little help sometimes to clarify goals and direction. Her approach is eclectic and collaborative: taking from many different approaches that best fit with each client to create a safe space to let you be yourself, be heard, understood, and help you to reach your goals.

Ruth considers herself a generalist and sees a wide range of psychological issues in her practice such as depression, grief, life transitions, childhood trauma, codependency, workrelationship stress, addictions, and family issues. She works from a strength-based and Rogerian, client-centered approach utilizing psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques. ​Clients have said that Ruth is gentle and warm in her approach supporting with positivity, encouragement, and empathy as well as being proactive in challenging limiting beliefs.

Ruth is fluent in Spanish having migrated to the United States from El Salvador when she was 13 years old and lived in Spain for some time. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Hispanic Languages, Literature, and Culture and her Masters in Social Work from Stony Brook University in NY.
