Ruby (She/her) is a warm, intuitive therapist, who strives to work from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, anti-colonial, and intersectional framework. Her approach to therapy is collaborative, creative, humorous, and compassionate.
Ruby has a wide range of experience; she has supported children on the autism spectrum and their families, individuals struggling with chronic pain, substance use issues, and children, youth, and adults working through mental health challenges. Her years of experience have given her a sense of reverence for the therapeutic process, and she is constantly humbled by what her clients teach her about what it means to be a human being, and how healing is possible for all of us. As a deeply curious person, Ruby adores that her work as a therapist affords her endless opportunities for learning and growth.
Ruby brings a relational approach to her work as a therapist, as she believes that we are not meant to heal alone, and acknowledges the therapeutic relationship itself, as a key tool for transformation and healing. Ruby is committed to the continued learning/unlearning required to be an ally to BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA communities, and she offers her clients a gentle and affirming space to explore new possibilities for healing from. Outside of her work with Peak Resilience, Ruby loves: music, design, movement, open bodies of water, expansive conversation, adventure, learning new things, reading, and good food.
