Helping people recover from trauma is one of my passions. I provide individual therapy for a wide variety of presenting concerns including PTSD, depression, anxiety, stress, grief & loss, relationship issues, and adjustment issues.

Dr. Rutt's Approach to Therapy
My passion is to help people through some of the most difficult times in their lives. I believe that good therapy starts with a trusting and collaborative relationship. My approach in therapy is nonjudgmental, down-to-earth, and evidence-based. I work to create a place where you feel safe and able to talk about the things that are important to you. I have had comprehensive training in a wide variety of psychotherapies. I draw from multiple approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Client-Centered Therapy.
