Colleague, MA, LCPC

Welcome!
There is help and hope for you and your teen, preteen, or young adult, whatever the need may be.
Hi, I'm Ruth, and I absolutely love working with teens! Teens are and always have been my forte. I have an amazing way of connecting to young people, and I never take this gift for granted. I knew at age 13 that I wanted to work with teens struggling with a wide variety of issues and difficulties, and this desire has never wavered. Working with this distinct population continues to be my passion, and I'm thrilled to be a part of their growth and successes.

Those who struggle with home, school, personal, and/or social issues can be blocked from successful learning and effective functioning in life. As a teacher, counselor, coach and mentor, I provide positive goal and solution-oriented services. My passion is empowering teens to not only survive but thrive through these often difficult years. I encourage and build teens up to realize and actualize their true value, strengths, uniqueness, “lovability”, and their potential for success and fulfillment in life.

I am highly specialized in four distinct disciplines:
  1. Education therapist
  2. Substance abuse counselor (Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor - CADC)
  3. Behavior specialist - ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder (CD)
  4. Life skills coach/mentor
My work is mainly with teens, but also includes preteens and young adults, and parents as need be. With academic and learning difficulties/disabilities, I do work with all ages, elementary age children through adult. For over 30 years, I have worked with teens in various settings: alternative high schools, public high schools, residential treatment facilities for substance abuse, Department of Corrections (DOC), and in private practice.

Throughout this site, the word “teen” will also refer to pre-teens and young adults.

I serve a wide geographical area. I work out of Wheaton, IL, in DuPage County, yet teens come to me from all over the Chicago area, including Kane County, DuPage County, Cook County, Will County, and Lake County.

My approach in working with teens is behavioral, cognitive, educational, relational, and eclectic. I focus on the whole person, encompassing their home, school, personal, and social lives, dependent on their needs.

The hallmark features of my work are passion, creativity, dedication, and humor. I am down to earth, engaging, and FUN - definitely different from the norm! Many teens come to me after trying other help, and I'm always thrilled to be a part of their growth and successes.

When working with an out-of-control or at-risk teen, I have been exceptionally successful in keeping him or her in the home, that would have otherwise been placed in a residential program.

The capacity of people to change and grow in positive ways is an intrinsic trait we all possess and can continue building on every day of our lives. Preteens, teens and young adults faced with educational, behavioral, and/or emotional difficulties can realize this potential within themselves. It is never too late!

I network with a wide variety of professionals who offer additional expertise in psychological testing,
neuropsychological testing, medical assessment, and medication management.
