Barbara Ruark, LCPC, CAC-AD


The first step is the hardest, but you have done it. Life is full of challenges, from depression and anxiety to PTSD, grief, or other life adjustments. Whatever you are facing, counseling can help you learn to manage or overcome it.

We often find ourselves stuck when dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addictions, and all the challenges life can throw at us. My intention as your therapist is to access the core cause of your adversity through empathy, encouragement, and prejudice-free listening to help you reach your potential, achieve personal goals, and find healing.

​My background includes working in criminal justice, community outreach, addictions, parenting classes, schools, and individual and family therapies. I have diverse experience in helping clients of all backgrounds and ages reach

their fullest capacity. I would be deeply honored to be a part of your story, your journey, and your healing.
