Ruth Rodriguez, M.S., LMFT-Associate
I recognize that taking a step to talk to someone and getting the help you are needing can be very hard and daunting. I believe in creating a safe place and a no-judgment zone where clients can come and be their authentic selves. I am aware that life’s challenges and difficulties can cause strain on day-to-day life, our relationships, and our sense of self. I strive to provide a custom-fit approach for individuals, couples, and families. As a marriage and family therapist, I aim to help relationships get stronger, restore, and heal. I am committed to working with you during this unsettling time and helping you and your family find a better quality of life.
My approach in therapy is mostly strength-based, meaning that I believe in drawing out the strengths that are already in you to help you manage through any difficult situation. I use Solution-focused therapy and Narrative therapy to help in this process of identifying strengths. For individuals who are struggling with depression or anxiety I use these same models of therapy along with Cognitive Behavioral therapy. I believe that the systems around us (family, friends, and our culture) have a significant influence on how individuals view themselves and view others. I use systemic approaches to explore any relational patterns that are factoring in your relationship’s issues and help you create new patterns that will serve you better.
