     “Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.” - Rainer Maria Rilke

In the midst of a conversation over direct message with a stranger, pouring her heart out to me about her recent heartbreak, and another about how hard his transition to college had been, and another about their relationship with their parents, and another about what it was like to come out to her family and friends, and another, and another, and another, I realized I was in the wrong field. The most fulfilling part of my career in media was the human connections I was making, and the small part I’d had in someone’s healing journey. This is what I was meant to do.

Hello! My name is Veronica Ruckh, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, working under the supervision of Tammie D. Martin, MA, LPC-S, and I am passionate about connection and the healing that comes from it.

Counseling can be an intimidating process, but I am here to create an experience that feels less hierarchical, and more like we are just two people in a room, working together, collaboratively, to piece together the puzzle that is you. That room, unlike other rooms, is completely free from judgment, and with the forever knowledge that you are the expert in your own life. I know “feelings” can be scary. And you’re right. When you’re ready (and only when you’re ready), there will be feelings. Sometimes, we’ll cry, sometimes we’ll yell, sometimes we’ll laugh – and sometimes we won’t. But we’ll try to internalize the message that something that lives inside of us has more control over us than something that doesn’t – including our feelings. So you’ll do your best to let them out and I’ll do my best to make it feel safe to do so.

Above all else, we will strive to be our most authentic selves, even if you’re struggling to know or remember who that “self” is for a time. Whether that’s because you’re a couple going through a transition and can’t get on the same page, an individual who’s experienced trauma that you’re ready to unpack, a teen on a journey through a newly realized identity, an queer person ready to come out, a queer person who’s tired of coming out, an emerging adult experiencing anxiety or depression as they go out on their own for the first time, an individual struggling with changes in relationships or friendships, someone entering a period of growth or self-reflection, or just some unknowable “other,” through emotionally focused and client centered therapy, we will get you (re)acquainted with you.
