WHY WORK WITH RUBY?
Therapists have robust skills, talents, and passions. We are a helping hand, a supportive force, and we provide a holding space. There are a lot of us, so why me?
Accessible. With telehealth therapy, barriers are removed. There is no need for travel, for gas, for childcare or for ADA accessibility in buildings.
Relatable. I take great pride in being approachable, real, and honest. I have heard feedback that this has helped lessen the anxiety associated with initiating the therapeutic process.
Truth worthiness. I am committed to providing honest and direct therapeutic relationship, both in terms of language and resources used in sessions. I also strive to be open about my thought processes in therapy as therapy should be engaging, not a mystery.
Diversity. I have diverse experience with a wide range of clientele; This includes working for two years with people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and genderqueer. Also working with people with HIV diagnosis. Additionally, I have worked closely with immigrants, older adults, and those in a caregiving role. Finally, I provide therapy in English and Spanish.
Resourceful. I have experience in treating depression, generalized anxiety, performance anxiety, creative blocks, communication/relationship issues, life transitions, work/life balance, women's issues, and habit building. I also specialize in a variety of counseling modalities, including positive psychology, Solution Focused Therapy, mindfulness, strength based interventions, life style interventions, somatic interventions, creativity, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which I integrate with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Natural Processing (for Somatic EMDR) to further improve results.
Ownership. I encourage all my clients to truly listen and own their feelings: they are there for a reason, they are messengers, and they provide the clues for transformation. I encourage myself to truly listen and be open about my thought processes in therapy so to connect in more effective ways.
