My focus is to empower families by improving their relationships and communication so family members are more of a support than a burden to each other. Family issues that I commonly treat are couple's communication, sexual issues in a relationship, mixed-agenda couples (where one is considering a divorce), co-parenting after a divorce, behavior issues with children, as well as abuse or neglect in families. I also help families where a member struggles with self-injury, depression, or anxiety.

Ruth's Family Therapy's Groups

Self-Injury Support Groups of Northwest Indiana

The main group is for those who have a strong desire to stop using self-injury to cope with life's stresses. The goals and curriculum come from the S.A.F.E. Alternatives Program: 1- Increase awareness of destructive behaviors and their consequences. 2- Increase awareness of feelings and how to identify them. 3- Learn to tolerate feelings. 4- Learn to identify and constructively express feelings, wants, and needs 5- Use constructive coping in daily life. The family support group is for loved ones and friends of those who are struggling with self-injury. Visit selfinjuryNWI.org for more information.
