My name is Ruth Spiegel and I am a Psychotherapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy; maintaining a private practice inSt. Paul, Minnesota.
With over 15+ years of experience as a marriage and family therapist and drug and alcohol counselor, and as a graduate of St. Mary's University and the University of Minnesota, I am currently serving as private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are: Trauma, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), Hypnosis, Marriage and Family Therapy, and Drug and Alcohol Counseling.
My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I will work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
On a more personal side, I have had a rich life of performing as a professional singer, blessed with friends and family. I am an animal lover, and believe in the importance of connections.
