Tammy Ruterbusch, LMSW


Growth is made when we step outside of our comfort zone and experience something new. I believe it takes a strong person to seek therapy and ask for help in any area of their life. I am here to guide you in the next steps of your journey, working side by side, to empower your self-determination. I believe you are the biggest change agent in your life and you control the way life affects you. Together we will build a therapeutic relationship to trust each other and reach your desired goals.

Personal Statement

My lifes journey brought me here to utilize my knowledge and experiences to create an empathetic and understanding environment for you to grow. As a therapist I seek to provide you a comfortable and compassionate atmosphere while gently helping you to understand other perspectives. I operate from a mindful approach with a background in systems theory. This means I ground in your present situation while looking at and understanding how your environment has shaped who you are. My practice is to utilize your own strengths so that you may confidently embrace any change.
