Ruth Patiño Henderson, LCSW

As a therapist, I am here to work together side by side as we navigate difficult life challenges. 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.

I received my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University in 1999, and my graduate degree at the University of Utah in 2003. In my spare time, I enjoy connecting with different people and cultures, as well as cooking, traveling, being active, movies and spending time with my famil.

Previously, I worked in higher education and partnered with non-profit agencies, organizations and businesses providing counseling and support services, seminars and employee assistance consulting. As a clinical therapist, I enjoy the depth and impact of working more one on one with my clients. I have extensive experience working with diverse communities, adolescents, young adults, women and couples. Areas of focus include women's issues, blending families, navigating divorce or distressed relationships, couples' counseling, family and parenting challenges, grief, life transitions, diversity issues, anxiety and depression. I am passionate in helping women feel empowered, more self-assured and balanced in their relationships and in their overall life experiences. I also specialize working with couples and those recovering from trauma using evidence-based modalities including EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) strategies and Lifespan Integration that help to improve overall connection and healing.

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 look forward to working together!
