Hello! My name is Diamond Ruth (she/her) and I am a Licensed Master of Social Work. I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. It is unique and has helped shape and influence how you perceive and respond to the world around you, and sometimes everything isn't always positive. Understanding how past and potential traumas can influence the present, as well as help give you the power to promote positive change is the goal. I believe in the dignity, power, and potential of human beings and make it my personal and professional mission to help clients recognize this power within themselves.
I've focused my training on understanding trauma and supporting individuals through encouragement and gentle, realistic thought processing while also focusing on your individual strengths and goals. An important part of my therapeutic role is to meet you where you are on your journey toward emotional wellness and stability.
It can be very scary to take the first step. Your brain might be telling you that you’re not worthy, that you can’t do it, that nothing will change, etc., and this can be hard to overcome at times. I would love to be part of your journey to healing. You are important! I strive to create a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment where healing is possible.
Take the first step to help. Diamond Ruth now
