Ruth Etchells Siborg, LPC

I have worked as an in-home therapist for 17 years. Working with families in recovery from substance use and Foster and Adoptive Families. I am level 2 trained in Internal Family Systems therapy.

I believe that people have the ability to heal themselves and at times they need a guide. I use a strengths based, person centered approach with an Internal Family Systems lens.

Whatever obstacles and struggles someone may be going through in life, I consider it a privilege to help my clients deal with.

I understand that the clients I see are entrusting me to give them the right resources to guide them down a new path, with a new perspective, so they can achieve their own goals. With a healthy balance of listening, guiding, and even learning, I take pride in using my own experience and resources to help people really start off on the right foot on that path. Whether you, or someone you know struggles with something like depression, or simply wants a different outlook on their life, it’s something to work through together, and by setting up a consultation, we can get started.

As a professional therapist, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. Together we’ll work to uncover and better understand life’s challenges and day-to-day stressors that detract from your life and focus, and begin identifying and practicing things that will make you stronger.
