My passion and focus is working with adults, adolescents, and families experiencing distress in their relationships and/or symptoms of depression and anxiety. I approach my work with clients from a place of genuine curiosity and understanding. I aim to provide a safe space where we can discuss the challenges getting in the way of achieving your goals and create a sustainable support system for lasting change in your life. I pride myself on being transparent during the process and an active participant in session.

I have extensive experience working with adolescents struggling to meet the demands of school due to anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, or conflict with peers and family. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for children. I am also skilled in working with individuals, adolescent, families, and couples struggling with grief and loss.

My background in Nutrition and Healthcare studies informs the ways in which I strive to help my clients achieve a better balance between negotiating daily stress and building care and compassion for themselves. I offer flexible scheduling, pricing, and various modes of communication: phone coaching, video session, email, and text.

Ruth Karasik's Groups

Healthy Mothering

This group is geared toward expectant mothers and/or new mothers. This group is different than a typical 'new mom's group;" because its orientation is around the psycho-emotional challenges that come with the changes of becoming a mother. This group is an opportunity to share your thoughts and feeling around this life transition, body image, work stress, your relationship to your partner, sexuality, and anxiety around navigating your health and the health of your family so that you can love and enjoy mothering.
