About Ruth

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) with nearly 20 years of experience working with adults, teens, children, families and couples in a variety of therapeutic settings.  I received an MS in Counseling from the CACREP accredited marriage and family therapy program at California Polytechnic State University.  In addition, I am an EMDRIA certified EMDR II Clinician and a Registered Sandplay Practitioner through the Sandplay Therapists of America. 

My professional experience includes a large range of issues including trauma, grief, abuse, substance abuse, shame, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, parenting and life transitions.  I have worked in agency, hospice, substance abuse treatment, school, pregnancy center, home-based and private practice settings.  I have worked with clients from ages 3 to 93.

Professional development is a value as well as a requirement of mine.  Each year, I take trainings and courses that allow me to continue to grow as a therapist and enhance my ability to support clients.
