Ruth Dombrowski's bio

This content was provided by Ruth Dombrowski "The world we have created is a product of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking. -Albert Einstein …in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. -Anne Frank At Seasons Therapy, the seasons of your life are honored and help is given to handle the transitions. Whether you're facing a problem with your job, a relationship that is unhealthy, a worry about your child at any age, an illness that is impairing your abilities, or a concern for yourself or another that a habit has gotten out of control, behavioral health treatment has helped many people get back on track. Having problems with depression, anxiety or other mental health issues can make these struggles much more difficult, so learning ways to manage these becomes part of the process of recovery. I have been in practice as a counselor for over 20 years and feel that at this stage of my life I have seen many seasons and have the experience to guide you through the storm. As a Social Worker, I have been a part of people's lives in many ways. Early in my career as a Crisis Clinician I fought for them when they experienced a crisis in emergency rooms and treatment centers. Later I joined them in their homes to help them solve problems that seemed insurmountable. I facilitated group therapy, taught classes, advocated, confronted and looked holistically at the person and family within complicated circumstances. As a Certified Addictions Counselor, I have worked extensively with people who are dealing with the challenge of substance use disorders, compulsions, dual diagnosis and the losses that come with it. I have cried with parents, and rejoiced with clients who achieved milestones in recovery. These experiences have transformed my life and given me a profound respect for each person's individual journey, while confirming that there is a universality of experience that allows us to learn from the wisdom of the ages. The Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. -Lau Tzu 600 BCThe unexamined life is not worth living. -Socrates 400 BC I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients discover nonproductive patterns and learn how to navigate the road toward acceptance, love, awareness, forgiveness and recovery. I also incorporate concepts of Mindfulness, Behavioral, Motivational, Reality, Pastoral and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. This eclectic approach helps me to meet your needs as you present them. I work with you to facilitate your personal and spiritual growth, believing that it is a lifelong journey that enables us to appreciate the mountaintop experiences, and to cope with the valleys. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. -Martin Luther King Jr. I am passionate about recovery and have supported many causes to help people rehabilitate from losses and setbacks of all types. Life isn't just about surviving though, it is about experiencing the fullness of a life well lived. I hope you decide to pursue therapy with me and allow me to be a part of your journey."
