Ruth Henderson, LCSW

As a therapist, I am here to work together side by side with my clients as we navigate different life challenges.My strengths include addressing women's issues, blending families, navigating divorce, couples' counseling, family and parenting challenges, life transitions, diversity issues, and anxiety and depression. I encourage my clients to feel empowered and heard, so that they can feel more capable to work through finding their best solutions towards making positive changes in their lives. Previously, I worked in education and partnered with various non-profit agencies, organizations and businesses providing counseling and support services, seminars and employee assistance consulting.I have worked extensively with diverse communities, adolescents, young adults, women and couples.

My hope is that you will find the understanding, support and answers you seek as you embark on your therapeutic process; and become more equipped with the knowledge and tools you feel you need.

I received my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University in 1999 and my graduate degree in Social Work at the University of Utah in 2003. In my spare time, I enjoy getting to know people and different cultures, as well as cooking, traveling, working out, seeing movies and spending time with my family and loved ones.
