Ruth Whitmire

LPC, MA OF COUNSELING

 

Ruth believes we are all intended for deep and meaningful relationships; the power of the counseling process can help heal the brokenness in our lives, and bring restoration and transformation to us and to our relationships. The change that happens in counseling helps us become truer versions of ourselves, allowing us to relate to others with more authenticity and integrity.

Ruth has worked with clients of all ages and concerns but has a special heart for working with adolescents and young adults struggling with family of origin issues, anxiety, depression, adjustment/transition, grief, and trauma.  Ruth is a professing Christian and her faith is the foundation of her counseling practice and her worldview, and she loves to work with clients of all beliefs and backgrounds.
