Life can be hard sometimes. We may feel stuck, overwhelmed or unsure how to make our personal goals into reality. It takes courage to reach out for help. Therapy is a supportive, non-judgmental space to share your emotional struggles, pain and stress. Together, we can create effective coping strategies, discover and develop your existing sources of strength and joy, and allow you to more fully enjoy life.

My practice focuses on helping clients of all ages on a range of issues including relationship challenges, grief and loss, trauma and PTSD, self-esteem, anxiety and shame. I have also supported clients struggling with depression, disordered eating, stress related to toxic work or family environments, divorce, medical trauma and parenting. Many of my clients are survivors of physical, sexual and/or narcissistic abuse. These painful experiences require courage and compassion to heal from.

My practice is LGBTQIA+ affirming.

Individual Therapy

Therapy looks a little different for each client. I will meet you where you are, provide you with options, education and strategies for healing, self-acceptance and empowerment. Together we can find your path to healthy self-expression and happiness.  

I offer a variety of formats for therapy, including in-person, virtual and phone appointments. My approach is collaborative. I draw from a variety of therapeutic methods as well as your feedback to find what resonates best with you and best helps you accomplish your goals.  

Every person has the ability to grow, heal, and thrive. Suffering can lead us to lose hope or to believe that we are broken or damaged.  This is untrue! Our true nature and potential may seem absent or hidden but it is there and it cannot be destroyed.  By uncovering and rediscovering our strengths and abilities, we can overcome challenges, find meaning and purpose, and live more fulfilling lives. Through the self-discovery process we can learn to find understanding and compassion for even the most feared and hated parts of ourselves.  We can heal from our past and move forward.

Couples Therapy

Relationships are challenging. In couples therapy, we can develop effective communication tools and skills as well as explore the issues that keep you and your partner feeling stuck, re-traumatized, unseen, dissatisfied, resentful or distant. We can increase emotional understanding and intimacy, facilitate openness and achieve clarity and understanding of you, your partner and your relationship.

About Ruth

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) with nearly 20 years of experience working with adults, children, families and couples in a variety of therapeutic settings. I have been in private practice in Denver, Colorado for 12 years. In addition to private practice, I have worked in several mental health settings including as a school counselor with children kindergarten through 8th grade, substance abuse counselor for teens, grief counselor and in-home family therapist. I have worked extensively with immigrant, minority and refugee populations and have a deep understanding of the devastating effect that oppressive systems have on mental health.

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.

Types of Therapy

Talking through problems in a supportive, empathic space allows for healing. In addition to talk therapy, I offer a range of methods including EMDR, IFS and Sandplay therapy.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic method extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. It works with both our mind and body to make sense of traumatic events and help leave them in the past where they no longer interfere with our lives. When EMDR works successfully, clients no longer re-experience the distressing images, sounds, feelings and sensations when reminded of disturbing past events. The memory is not gone, but it is no longer as intense and distressing. For more information on EMDR please visit www.emdria.org

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a therapeutic method based on a belief that all of us have many different internal parts. Due to life’s challenges, these parts take on different roles. Some become protective and some, very vulnerable parts, we keep hidden. By identifying and building relationships with the many different parts we have within ourselves, we can gain new understanding into why we do what we do. When we heal the most vulnerable parts of ourselves, we can let go of unhelpful strategies and problematic behaviors. For more information on IFS please visit https://ifs-institute.com/


Sandplay Therapy is a Jungian method which offers the opportunity for clients of any age to use their imagination and experience parts of themselves that may be avoided under other circumstances. Though originally developed as a way to reach children, sandplay can also be extremely effective with adults. Clients place miniatures in sand to create images or tell stories. In a fun, non-threatening way, symbols can put us in touch with parts of ourselves that we don’t know very well. This creative process is a great means of exploration and expression. We have the opportunity to “get out of our own way” and experience things rather than analyze them. For more information on sandplay please visit https://www.sandplay.org/
