Meet Ruth

LMHC, NYC - Based Psychotherapist

MY APPROACH

I am awed and inspired by the courage people display in taking control of their lives and working to better themselves and their futures. No one’s life looks the same. We’re all on different journeys and my job as a therapist is to help equip you to live your best life. Together, we will create a space and relationship - human to human; that offers safety, the potential for self-exploration and re-possession of personal power that helps you to make the changes you want.

I offer a warm, empathetic, genuine approach to all my clients, providing a space free from judgment where real growth can happen. I use evidence-based therapies to help people gain insight or mend previous painful events that may be impacting current thoughts, beliefs, and patterns of behavior. I integrate a variety of approaches such as CBT & DBT (action-oriented skills trainings), psychodynamic, and mindfulness techniques. I am also a native Spanish speaker, and I am comfortable holding sessions in Spanish.

I am passionate about working with individuals with diverse racial and cultural backgrounds, countries of origin, religions, abilities, body sizes, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
