Ruthie T Arbit

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LICSW, MA

My approach to therapy is to partner with you and your family to create an individualized and goal-directed treatment plan. I can help you uncover your strengths and use the skills you already have to make lasting changes. You will experience a warm, genuine, playful, and humorous treatment approach.

I specialize in pediatric and maternal mental health offering support from pregnancy into early childhood. I use CBT, mindfulness, and family-focused play therapy to treat behavioral difficulties, anxiety, depression, parenting challenges, and mood disorders related to pregnancy and the postpartum period.

I offer both short and long-term support and I can combine different treatment approaches to create the plan that works best for you and your family.
