About

I am a warm, compassionate psychologist who practices therapy with a "power with" rather than a "power over" approach. I have personal experience with many life events including single parenting, divorce, caring for elderly parents, and overcoming depression. I specialize in treating eating disorders, body image, identity issues, depression, trauma, anxiety, and cancer related distress. I have extensive experience working at the residential & outpatient levels for eating disorders, and provide supportive therapy for not only the client, but for the parent or significant other who supports them.
Would you like to change your self perspective and self stories? For many years I have provided my clients with the experience of being "seen" through the lens of my camera. I built upon this experience and developed a customized process that uses photographic portraits in revealing and healing negative self-stories. I call this the Photo Identity Process.
My therapeutic approach is integrated, combining: Depth Psychology, IFS, Attachment Theory, PhotoTherapy, Art and Narrative Therapy, Exposure and Response, CBT, and Women's Spirituality. I feel it is important that your voice be heard, and that you remain an active agent in your therapeutic mission. I invite you to visit my website at www.robinruth.com.
