"Ruthie is warm, engaging, supportive, and an excellent listener. She combines empathy and professional knowledge with a delightful candor. She clearly understands the full spectrum of human experiences and behavior, particularly those affecting women and mothers -- the swell of conflicting emotions after giving birth, the struggle to understand how family dynamics change when a baby is born, the disorienting mix of happiness, sadness, and overwhelm. Ruthie appreciates how and why certain life changes can temporarily unmoor us, and understands the value of talking through the next steps in an open, constructive way."


"Ruthie's expertise in perinatal mental health is a true asset to the DC Metro Area. As a first time mom, I struggled to balance this new role with the shifting dynamics of my marriage. Ruthie helped to normalize these issues and come up with helpful strategies and suggestions to navigate this uncharted territory. She is an excellent listener, and consistently ensured that my concerns - big and small - were validated and addressed."

Michelle Visser, Psychotherapist, Boston

"Ruthie's approach to treatment is based on extensive training and experience, but carried out with warmth and compassion. She meets the entire family without judgement and helps them grow together towards a place of health and happiness. She is a resource and partner that no D.C. family should overlook!"
