Meet Ruth Gillis, LMFT

Ruth Gillis, LMFT

“I have been told that I have a gift of compassion.”

I have been told that I have a gift of compassion and my passion is to see progress and relief from your struggles as quickly as you want to heal.

My clients have shared with me over the years that “I can just feel and see that you really care”. Through the relationship that I am able to build with each person individually, I have been able to assist with healing some severely hurt people.

The experiences that an individual is willing to share with me, is a privilege that I take very seriously. Relationships make up who we are and there is no time like the present to improve ourselves for a more enjoyable life. I have been able to assist clients to make their own emotional, physical and lifestyle positive changes.

Let’s get to it!
