I provide a non-judgmental and safe space for individuals to share their stories and work toward fulfilling their highest self. I utilize a person-centered approach in an effort to nurture self-discovery and encourage clients to cultivate the life they dream of. I provide support and listen closely to each client's individual experience and personal goals. My experience in working with those moving through trauma, anxiety, depression, family/relationship dynamics, and managing diversity issues lend themselves to providing a warm and caring atmosphere.

I have completed training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral therapy, LGBTQ+ clinical interventions, Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.

Samantha Ruda, M.A., L.P.C.
Mental Health Counselor

Are you struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety? Maybe you are going through major life changes like pregnancy, birth, new motherhood, relationship struggles, or just looking to reconnect with yourself. Reaching out for help is a positive first step toward change. The therapeutic relationship is the most significant predictor of healing and growth. I strive to build a warm and authentic rapport with every client so you feel safe enough to be vulnerable and connect with your inner self and story and effect positive change in your life.

I believe that together through exploration, and connection to your inner self and unique story, you can begin to identify, notice, and work through limiting beliefs to invite growth, healing, and peace into your life. My role is to walk beside you as you navigate each step on this journey.
